Tabbetha is a professional knitter. She designs fabric and fashions for Peruvian Connection, and has done so for more than a decade. Her work there has taken her around the world and given her the opportunity to do what most knit designers dream of.
Her most recent expansion in her own design for the catalog is a series of wet felted jewelry. So beautiful!
These earrings almost make me wish I still had pierced ears!
We met at her studio to knit the afternoon away while dh, Little A and Little N went exploring in Kansas City.
Her studio is every knitter's dream! Wool, yarn, roving, dyes, felting supplies, knitting machines, fancy gadgets, swatches. You name it, it's there. Wow! It was so much fun to look around, trying not to salivate on stuff. We talked a lot about dyeing, felting, design, spinning, wool, and pretty much every "wool" topic there is.
Look at all the cool gadgets!
Not only did we have a good time knitting, I got to ask all sorts of design questions and got to spend the afternoon with someone I've wanted to get to know better for a long time.
p.s. That's a mohair sweater she designed herself. Amazing lady!
