I had a busy day yesterday – researching the Summer Whimsey pattern.

Judy Gibson commented on my Facebook page that, due to the German title, Model – 36, and the hand-written symbols – she was positive that the Summer Whimsey pattern was designed by Erich Engeln originally.

This started me on a search to find out more!

There is a Ravelry page for some of his patterns.  There are German editions still available as reprints through Lacis as well.

Just as we were finishing our walk - how beautiful - the first glimpses of Spring!

I even found a blog posting , the Cromulent Knitter, from 2006 about his patterns and most importantly a legend.  The legend is a little late for me but useful for anyone else who wants to try out this pattern on their own!

I will be using this pattern for the Summer Painting Workshop this year.  I will redo and modernize the chart for it!  Painting this afternoon!

Oh and I also walked at Neck Point and was thoroughly soaked for my efforts – not many pictures either!

Happy Knitting
