His designs, to date accessories only and mostly scarfy, shawly, neck thingies, are creative and lovely. He uses luxury yarns for wraps that surrounds your neck in ethereal softness.
Last fall at the Kitchener Waterloo Knitters Fair, I succumbed. One of the booths had several of Stephen's Spectra scarf/shawls made up and on display along with several 'kits' containing yarns and pattern. It was an eye-catching, crowd-stopping display. Despite the 'ouch' price tag, I couldn't resist.
But my ill-informed, un-informed opinion, based on appearance only, that the pattern would be difficult to knit caused my kit to sit on a shelf until a day when I could devote the time to knit with concentration. How wrong I was. Stephen, my new man, has written a pattern of the best kind. Easily memorized and easily knit. The pattern defies it's true simplicity with an appearance of complexity that would impress even the narrowest of knitters. Thank you Stephen.
