Shawl-tober

My idea was to learn how to knit socks in Sock-tober, that quintessential of knitting skills during that quintessentially cozy month for knitting, as the days shorten and the chilly mists set in. However, my summer knitting project, Barbara Bensen's lovely Earthbound Misfit Shawl, ended up taking all summer, all September, and all.... (not-Sock) October.

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.
