Today I'd like to return to the land of knitting and cool knitting stuff.
If you love the beautiful scenery in films made in New Zealand, than you will be mad for Stephanie Quattrini's designs and kits. I was cruising through one of my favorite yarn sites, Yarn Market after seeing their add for one of Stephanies's Kits - gorgeous bag kit actually rated as skill level EASY in the August 08 issue of Knit 'N Style.
The colors, patterns and textures are very artistic and attainable by mere mortals like ourselves. I especially like the concept of her Freeform Bag Kit, which allows you to become the artist by the placement of embellishments and the use of both knitting and crochet. So many kits leave the creative side of your brain empty and your task oriented side overflowing...resulting in knitter burn out and lack of motivation to finish your project. Not so with Stephanie's kits. I hope you will take a moment away from your knitting/crocheting to visit her online for a breath of fresh New Zealand air - Breathe Deep Everyone as my friend Lyn is famous for saying!
I just got an article accepted in this hip & hapnin' craft zine and will post which issue as soon as I hear ;)
