One Great Knitter

Day #3…

One Great Knitter

Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.

I suspect it’s going to surprise Toni to see her name (and knitting and dog) here, but she REALLY inspires me.

She makes color work look effortless and as natural as breathing, which most certainly isn’t the case for me.  She makes alterations to sweaters on the fly, she cranks out beautiful socks, all while making sure Dexter and the rest of her household feel loved and cherished.  Sigh.  Go Toni!!

    A knitter that really impressed me is Monika at

    Her items are so perfect they all look machine knit. I love going back over the photos on her blog again and again.
