Feeling Knitty

Knitting has been taking over my crafting activities as summer has arrived and with it vacations to beaches and such. Yarn and needles are so much easier to transport than a sewing machine and cutting table! The project I've finished most recently is a sweater I made for my daughter Emmanuelle's 4th birthday. I had fun learning to make the bobbles for the cuffs and collars and used intarsia for the big bow under the chin. I made it using a pattern from Melissa Leapman's book, Mastering Color Knitting.

ABOUT

Annette Fehr ~ Lyon, France

I come from a very artsy and craftsy family from the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Following a degree in Urban Planning & Design, I first moved to Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to the Beaujolais wine region of France where I'm constantly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding me. I took up knitting several years ago as a way to relax, reduce stress and as a child-compatible activity. I've experimented with all kinds of arts & crafts throughout my life including drawing, painting, calligraphy, architectural drawing, sculpting, jewellery-making, photography, quilting, embroidery, and crochet, and I was instantly fascinated by the infinite design possibilities, vibrant colour combinations and touchableness offered by hand-knitting. I dream of one day combining my passion for knitting with yarn possibilities appropriate for the hot climates which I love so much.
