Anna Hrachovec designs cute and strange knitted toys that appeal to adults and kids alike. The Japanese touch in her designs comes from two years that she spent in Japan studying film and language while absorbing the country's kawaii-obsessed culture. When she's not designing new toy patterns, Anna is creating character-based fiber art with her knitting.
As a child, I loved crafting, and often sewed my own toys and doll clothes. However, I didn't learn to knit until I found a knitting group at university. A toy rabbit was one of the first things I ever knit, because I wanted to learn a bunch of techniques with one small and quick project. A few years later, in 2006, I started designing and selling my own patterns for small toy animals with cute outfits.
Carol Sunday began designing knitwear as soon as her mother put a pair of needles into her little hands. Throughout her studies in engineering and medicine and her career as an artist, knitting was always the thing.
Cassandra Dominick is a PhD student at the University of Arkansas studying counselor education, but knitting is what keeps her up at night. Socks are her favorite knitting obsession. She maintains a blog at http://knitthehellout.com, and you can also find her on Ravelry as casystotyle or Twitter as knitten.
My great escape is that I am a knitter, weaver, spinner and currently pen the blog, Olives and Mermaids and Wine, oh my..... I learned to knit from my Grandmother and Mother as a child and haven't stopped learning or exploring the world of fiber. I have been creating my own patterns for many years, but have recently begun to actually write them down. My favorite wool is alpaca, but have been enjoying the discovery of different types of wool and other natural fibers. I usually knit or weave and spin every day....what would a day be without it.
I started knitting about three years ago, but come from a Family of knitters. My mother knitted for years and taught me to knit when I was a child, however at that time I found it very boring. After my children were born and raised I stared knitting for charity work and raffles. I totally enjoyed it and started knitting all the time.
ColourSpun yarn is created by hand; therefore each skein is imbued with the artist's energy and will have its own unique characteristics. Only the finest quality, locally grown merino wool roving and yarn, kid mohair and pure cotton is used; colored in a smoke and pet free environment using earth friendly dyes which have excellent wash fast and light fast properties.
To get something beautiful you have to invest your time and effort your knitting project becomes your best friend and sometimes you have to go back and start things over if a mistake was made (or embrace it), but you always forge on to get to your aspiration.
