Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero
Blog about someone in the fibre crafts who truly inspires you. There are not too many guidelines for this, it's really about introducing your readers to someone who they might not know who is an inspiration to you. It might be a family member or friend, a specific designer or writer, indie dyer or another blogger.
I've chosen the designer Kate Davies. She lives in one of my favorite places, Edinburgh, and I was fortunate to take a trip there in 2010:
While she is recovering from a serious stroke, she never ceases to amaze me with her resilience and fortitude. Her blog is always fun to read as she has beautiful photos from her walks and travels around Scotland, as well as interesting topics, such as one about a recent trip to the Donegal Yarn mill or a fascinating post about how women washed and dried their clothes in the nineteenth century.
She has so many beautiful patterns: two of my favorites are Hazelhurst and Boreal. I'd love to make either one but my fair isle skills aren't there yet!
