Sneezeweed

Posted by Caroline Hershey

We went in search of seaside goldenrod and thought we had found it. However on closer inspection, right color but wrong plant. This is sneezeweed which, contrary to its name does not cause one to sneeze. The name is based on the former use of its dried leaves in making snuff, inhaled to cause sneezing that would supposedly rid the boy of evil spirits.

Jackie brought this definitely clever bike bag to show at Knit Knight. The pattern is from Vogue Knitting by Norah Gaughan pattern number 35 titled Knitted Panniers. Issue is Winter 2004/2005. A few people have made it on Ravelry.
