Celebrating our Friends

Posted on Posted in projects

Hi, everyone!
I am sure most of you know me or have seen me mentioned on the blog before, but for those of you who do not, I will introduce myself. My name is Erica, and I’ve been working at Knitspot since the Summer of 2012. I started working here with my sister occasionally packing club orders, and now I manage the office and do everything and anything that comes across my desk. I LOVE working with knitters because they really make for the nicest customers. I love to hear from all of you and see your projects and ideas. I learned to knit nearly two years ago and have recently branched out into lace projects. I am a senior at Kent State University and plan on graduating with my BA in Business Management in December.

I have decided to start doing some blog posts because I think it will be really fun to show all of you what’s going on around the office and other things that might give you some insight into how we work together to turn great sparks of genius from Anne’s mind into all of this.

This week, I wanted to show off some of your projects because at Knitspot HQ we really do look at them and enjoy your ideas so much. Many of my goals and projects at work are inspired by the suggestions, reactions, and comments that you give us as you knit. This week, let’s see some Vendange coats!



This is a cool coat. It’s elegant, sexy, and smart all in one. I love designs that are versatile because they flatter your style and personality without overpowering you. Thanks to Barb for making our samples so quickly!


This is Kathy’s Vendange in Berroco Peruvia. It’s a green/blue color that is perfect for her. She is embracing the cowl-neck! She has some more photos on her project page that show off the coat, but I love this selfie 🙂



I just don’t think this blog could happen without these shots. I want to learn to strike a pose like her.  Cynthia’s Vendange is rich and cozy in a bulky Targhee by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. She is really showing it off, and it is the perfect color and fit for her.



Heather’s classic and silly shots show off how awesome she looks in her Vendange ! Heather’s coat is a great fit and very cozy in Miss Bab’s K2.

Thank you to the wonderful knitters that gave me permission to celebrate their coats with all of you! Anyone currently working on their Vendange?

  1. Great group of photos! My Vendange is nearing completion; body is done, sleeves are half done (two at a time). Soon!

  3. Nice blog Erica. Your a person with many talents. You know I love the Vendange. It looks fab on all the models.

  4. So much fun to see all the variations! Now if i can just pull up my socks and knit the buttonhole band, I’ll have a finished Vendange shortly myself!

  5. What a great idea, Erica. It is really fun to see a pattern knit up in different yearns and gracing a variety of bodies!
