INSPIRATION
Like many of us, I have been taught to knit by my grandmother(who actually preferred to crochet!). Being a young adolescent during the second world war made her appreciate bright colors and when I came around in the 70s, her style was a mix of classic 60s shapes with happy colors. I think orange was her favorite! I dedicate this pattern to her - a woman who taught me pretty much everything I know. But most importantly, she taught me to experiment with shapes, colors and never be afraid to tackle any project. I have been waiting to come up with something truly special to dedicate to her and I believe this definitely qualifies!
