Knitting crush *Madder*

The Internet is magic. It's full of awesome people and inspiration, and you find new ones every day. I started following Liesl a while ago and she has that awesome Sunday feature where she interviews really cool creative people. It's how I discovered Melody's blog Mandarine's (it's full of pretty photos, knitting, plants and basically all things handmade and natural). Through her blog I then found Lori's blog. She's an amazing knitter and i completely fell in love with her take on the Shwook hat! It's made with Shetland wool and the pattern is free to grab as part of the Shetland Wool Week that will take place in October. I'm planning to cast on my very own Shwook hat on that week (and so is Melody! What about you?)

But that's not the subject! Because through Lori's blog I then discovered Madder! Behind that site is Carrie Bostick Hoge, an other amazing knitter who has just self-published a book! Instant crush! The patterns are all stunning. I'm completely in love with the Sibella Cardigan (photo below), the Camilla Shawl Light (top photo) and the Beatrice Scarf in particular! 

So that's a lot of links, a lot of inspiration and a lot of love. What have you been crushing on lately?

  1. Those are all beautiful looking! Can't wait to see yours :)

  2. Lovely patterns (and great timing, knitting patterns is all I can think about right now). Isn't it funny how we find people and inspiration on the web? I love these connections.
