So you might remember I asked Chriss (our great crocheter) what inspires her: you read about it by clicking here.
But I had to ask our great knitter Faith the same thing. Read what she has to say!

been knitting since I was in my early teens. I made myself sweaters and
ponchos and the like. I earned some of my money for university knitting
sweaters. I hadn't been knitting much lately except out of necessity (I
go through a lot of mittens), but I found Darn Good Yarn by accident
this summer. I was entranced by the yarn and intrigued by the 80 ways to
save the earth tote bag. I ordered some of the yarn. When I decided to
make the tote smaller than the pattern called for, I had leftover yarn,
so I decided to make mittens. Silk is supposed to be the warmest thing
to wear in the winter. They turned out well, so I figured I'd try socks,
something I hadn't knit since I was about 14. This meant ordering more
yarn. I was working on them while on vacation, and my daughter and I
wandered into a fancy yarn shop in Charlottetown. She fell in love with
thrummed mittens, so I figured out how to make those. Her sister needed a
pair after seeing them, naturally. By this time I was totally in love
with the silk. Nicole was looking for designers, and every time I looked
at the silk I came up with another idea for how to use it. We started
collaborating, and there you are.
I also design cross-stitch and blackwork patterns and write for various publications, including a review zine.
