Knitting with the Color Guys

knitting: I learned from wise women, I took what they knew and added it to my own adventurous style.  I may discover a pattern, but I rarely copy it.  No two designs are exactly alike, each one is an original piece made for an original person.  A Testament to the wise women who shared their love and skill with a curious girl.

Looks like I have no choice but to find myself some table legs to whittle into giant knitting needles! Pinterest, you are making it impossible for a girl to want to do anything except be a full-time fiber Artist!

What a fantastic knitting project. Unfortunately, I have never seen needles that big in any of my local yarn stores. I can find huge needles, I want to know where you get this yarn!

Kaffe FASSETT teaching about color!

Kaffe Fassett - I include Mr. Fassett here, as he is a master in many mediums. His color sense is impeccable.
