That said, I love good rustic pure wool for sweaters and alpaca and silk mixes for lace work. And I absolutely love using the work of independent dyers when I can. When it comes to books my favourites are those that free the knitter by teaching you how to create or adapt designs, teach techniques—something I really try to do in my own designs by offering lots of possible variations and ways to adapt a given design to get people thinking. I suppose I must relish a bit of knitting adrenalin, because I just love inventing new constructions—and that does carry the inherent risk of failure and I have consigned a few to the frog pond —but it has produced some of my most popular designs, like the Artisan sweater, which is knit flat but then completely knit together so that there are no seams at all to sew.
