Day 3 of Knitting Blog Week

Day 3: Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero
Blog about someone in the fibre crafts who truly inspires you. There are not too many guidelines for this, it's really about introducing your readers to someone who they might not know who is an inspiration to you. It might be a family member or friend, a specific designer or writer, indie dyer or another blogger. If you are writing about a knitting designer and you have knitted some of their designs, don't forget to show them off.
Ohhh! There are so many inspiring designers, hard to decide. My current favorite designer would have to be Gudrun Johnston. Her designs have inspired my so much in the past year! I love how they feel classic yet at the same time modern. In the fall I posted about her book The Shetland Trader.
So far I have knit a hat and am working on a shawl from this book. I have also knit her Audrey Sweater, which is not in the book. It was a lovely sweater to make. I love how the sleeves are shaped with short rows. No more sewing in!

  2. I intended to leave you the comment about the knitting and crochet cardigan here, but it went to your previous post, yikes!(my mistake.) Well, I love your cardigan and blouse. Such a romantic look, once again, love it!

    1. I think it is going to be one of my new favorite looks! I love how the ruffle stand up around the neck.

    2. Yes... when I tried it on at the eddie bauer store, that was the first thing I noticed, how nicely it wraps around the neck.
