To some that may sound like a strange combination, but I believe in using good materials for DIY projects. Seeing others so passionate about knitting and designing inspires me.
I am up for the challenge again…an air of familiarity about it. I want to create something fashion forward and design-driven–nothing synthetic, as I believe in the beautiful complexity of organic nature–using beautiful yarns that are widely available in today’s marketplace.
I start seeing hints of that in some lines I’m playing with, but also feel that there is room for more. Ideas and inspiration come from the world of fashion and I like the challenge of figuring out how I may deconstruct it and make it myself. The next design play, in a Gigantuous swatch, is a classic piece I dream to really get wear out of.
I’m also very moved by the Japanese crafting scene and love its simplicity and styling shown in craft books.
Experimenting is key, I can’t be afraid to make mistakes. Just go for it…I’ll learn more that way 😀
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
