That Boy Sure Can Knit
I read craft blogs for many different reasons: inspiration, amazing photography, camaraderie, and information to name a few. There are a few blogs out there that combine, to an art, all of these reasons. Brooklyn Tweed is the lighthouse to those few. There is a quality to his photos that makes me believe no matter what chaos might lurk behind the photographer, a divine serenity is all his lens can capture. I admire his use of light and bokeh. Jared's knitting is made only more beautiful by his photos. I know he pours thought, patience, and skill into every stitch. A perfect example is his Striped Vest in Handspun and Recycled Tweed. I have no words. I do, however, have handspun thanks to Marmee and plenty of inspiration thanks to Jared.
