"The diamonds and bobbles square"
Julie H. Levy
Julie H. Levy hails from Stuart, Florida. She has this to say about her square:
My older sister taught me to knit when I was four and my earliest efforts were sweaters for my dolls. Eventually I graduated to sweaters and hats for friends and myself. When I discovered Elizabeth Zimmermann and Barbara Walker, my knitting life changed completely. I began to design and knitting became even more enjoyable.
My husband, Howard, and I lived on a boat for 12 years, cruising from the Florida Keys to Cape Cod and back. Many boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway were startled to see the navigator (me) reading the navigational charts while knitting. These days Howard and I have a smaller boat and I still knit while cruising. Along with knitting for our daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren, I'm making an evening jacket to wear to our oldest granddaughter's wedding.
For my square, I used Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns books. The "Serpentine Cable" looks like a fisherman's ropes, and "Aran Diamond and Bobble" is typical Aran patterning. Together they convey the Aran knitting that I want to impart.
