Today's topic for Knit and Crochet Blog Week is your knitting hero. I wasn't sure I had a knitting hero at first. I don't typically pick a pattern based on the designer so that was out as a criteria. But the more I thought about it, the more a couple of designers came to mind.
I'm from Arizona so I don't get a lot of use out of sweaters, gloves, hats and things like that. Don't get me wrong, there is an opportunity to use those things but the window is a whole lot smaller than many other places. And knitting a blanket in July when it's 110 degrees out is not the most fun.
That's why Susan B Anderson and Rebecca Danger are my knitting heroes. Knitting toys is a lot of fun. I had no idea when I first started knitting that you could make toys! And both of these ladies are amazing toy designers.
Susan Anderson's toys are great. I have a copy of Itty Bitty Toys and her instructions are so easy to understand. The bear I made for my niece for Christmas was the bear from that book.
Rebecca Danger is awesome too! I love how creative she is. I absolutely adore her monsters.
