Definitely a fan of: Christien Meindertsma


I first stumbled upon her work when I saw this great photo.

As a leisure knitter, I love the way she creates everyday household items (a pouf/ottoman, a rug) using knitting techniques usually reserved for scarves and sweaters (although someone once told me that knitting was first created by fishermen who used the skill to make their nets)!

I also appreciate Christien's interest in seeking out organic wool and even creating pieces derived from a single sheep's wool!
