Ohio Knitting Mills

I'm already on the look out for shops to visit when I head to NY next month and right now Ohio Knitting Mills in Brooklyn ranks pretty high on my list. The shop carries sweaters which were made at the Cleveland, OH factory from 1947-1974. Luckily for us, the company saved samples from each line they produced, offering us a wonderful (but limited) supply of of these wild patterned beauties. (Via Designer's Library)

Hi Risa,

Yes, we should definitely meet up when you come to town. I have a pretty varied background, everything from exhibit design to working for a wallpaper company. Right now I'm working on some of my own pattern designs (although I still have the day job too).

Send me an email when you get to Denver - oh, and are you going to NY for ICFF? I'm heading to check it out this year.
