Knitwear designer, teacher and author

After tak­ing a lit­tle break from whimsy last week, i’m back with some knit­ting inspi­ra­tion. I’ve been doing a lot of pat­tern research, on the hunt for my next few projects of 2012, and came across these two design­ers who really caught my eye. I want to knit every sin­gle thing!

Han­nah Fet­tig (aka Knit­bot) has pub­lished a new pat­tern book of nine designs, in con­junc­tion with Quince & Co. yarns. They’re sim­ple and mod­ern but still look really cute and girly. I love the bike dress! You can pur­chase the e-book of pat­terns here.You’ve prob­a­bly already seen a lot of Stephanie Dosen’s  Tiny Owl Knits pat­terns around the inter­net — I cer­tainly had when I finally found her whole col­lec­tion. They are the epit­ome of whimsy; owls, kit­tens, fairies, mush­rooms — oh my good­ness! My favourite has to be the over­sized bear jumper shown here. I can pic­ture this with dark skinny jeans and ankle boots on a frosty autumn day.But, before I’m even allowed to THINK about knit­ting any of these lovely pieces, I have to accom­plish one thing: Kate Davies owl jumper. The pat­tern has been pur­chased, the yarn has been ordered — I’m committed!
