Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer?
I have favorites. Among them are Nancy Bush who is my favorite sock designer, but I also like Star Athena’s socks. Of course, I love the crescent shawls that Susanna IC designs. A fingerless glove pattern that I use a lot as a stash buster is Grace Akhrem’s “Belle Gloves.” Another favorite is Ysolda Teague.
Day 9: What fiber or yarn do you love working with?
In general, the old standby, wool, is my favorite. However, I also love to work with alpaca, cashmere, silk, and other natural fibers. Cotton, linen, and bamboo are fine for summer knitting, but it’s hard for me to get “passionate” about them.
Day 8: What’s your most challenging project?
It was probably the “Morrigan’s Hood” I made for my youngest daughter. Pictures of this project and the concept art it was based on can be found among my earlier posts: x. If you want to read the “whole megillah,” the description can be found here: x.
