Investiture Controversy*

“Not vest but false sweater.”

“I, Henry, king by the grace of God, with all of my Bishops, say to you, ravel down, ravel down, and be frogged throughout the ages.”

The Holy Roman Emperor and the Pope, having sent emissaries and deputations, have reconciled themselves to the fact that I will appoint my own knitting patterns and try them according to the common law of the Land of Knitania.

Veste the Second:


Devon, knit in Jaeger Matchmaker Merino, with a panel of “Twist-Stitch Lattice” from the second Barbara Walker Treasury.  My first garment knit out of fingering weight yarn.  It will most certainly not be finished by the end of the month, but is a pleasant knit and makes me happy.

*Warning: History geek household.  What does it say about me that I’ve been looking to use an Investiture Controversy pun or reference since the beginning of the month?
