Day 11: Do you have a “Knitter Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share!
I find this a hard question to answer, there are certainly knitting individuals out there (and groups too) which are admirable, but I think ‘hero’ may be slightly over the top! So in no particular order…
- Kate Davies: I love her patterns, but furthermore I admire the blend of knitting and historical / cultural studies she incorporates into her work. As an academic, I find this approach adds immeasurably to my enjoyment of a project.
- Wovember / Campaign for Real Wool: Something I really only came to last year, but incredibly interesting.
- Crazy Sheep Lady: Found this blog a couple of months ago, and I’m hooked. She’s been documenting the surprise arrival and subsequent raising of an out-of-season lamb – now that is dedication!
