Hi Everyone,
My favorite designers are Jo Sharp, Kaffe Fassett, and Fiona Ellis.
I like Jo Sharp's designs because they are so beautiful in an elegant manner. I also enjoyed reading her design process on her website. Being a designer myself, it was wonderful to read how another designer gets inspired. I love Kaffe Fassett. His use of colors and designs are fantastic. He is the reason I started to knit. I saw a video of him that a friend had rented from our local library and I've been hooked ever since.
I just recently saw some pictures of Fiona Ellis' knitwear. Her work is absolutely gorgeous. Again, I read an article on her inspirations for her designs and her finished pieces are wonderful recreations of the inspirational material.

We love Jo Sharp too, but it's worthy to note that she *constantly* shorts the amount of yarn - often the pattern will say 11 balls, and mean 19!

I adore Kaffe Fasset because of his innovative 'anyone can do this' approach. He was amoung the first to promote knitting as art and his works truly are masterpieces. I stumbled onto an exhibition of his at the Victoria&Albert museum-- his use of yarn up close is is stunning. Now I credit him with the direction my knitting has taken.
