Talented knitting friends

Tony Limuaco and I met as students at what was then called the Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles, back in the early 80’s. (Sometime between then and now the two schools ended their affiliation) After graduation Tony went to NYC to make his way in the world. Thanks to the internet I was able to find Tony and reconnect by Googling his name.

Tony was in New York on 9/11 and to deal with the trauma and stress resulting from that event, he took up knitting. He got a knitting group going in a local bar, and has since become an amazing knitwear designer.

I love those lace panels in that shirt. Tony has a great post with more photos and details about this shirt he designed based on the traditional tropical mens shirt his father always wore.

Tony has had a few patterns published in Vogue knitting, I am so impressed! This beautiful lace shrug was in a recent issue with a focus on lace. He designed this shrug for a friend to wear with her wedding dress.

Tony has also designed a messenger cap, it is sooo cute and now you can buy his pattern for the Mercury Cycling Cap on Ravelry or with Paypal here.
