ANNA MARIA HORNER KNITS (PART 2)

Last September, as we were preparing for a workshop at Anna Maria Horner’s venture, Craft South, we got our first look at her new line of knit jersey fabrics—Anna Maria Knits. We have since experiemented and played with several of these patterned knits using our techniques and are loving the results. Shown here is our Swing Skirt from Alabama Stitch Book appliquéd with our Large Polka Dot Sencil, using her Tangle Knit print in Rust.

It reminds me of a harvest moon.

P.S.: We will be in Nashville next weekend for a Trunk Show and Two-Hour Workshop at Craft South. Make plans to join us.

P.P.S.: The team at at Craft South has paired two yards of our 100% Organic Medium-weight Cotton Jersey in Black with one yard of Anna Maria Knit Tangle in Rust to create a kit so you can make your own version of this project at home.
