  1. Kaffe Fassett is an interesting designer. I knit a couple of his designs several years ago, Tumbling Blocks and California Poppies. I really enjoyed the Poppies vest more. I made a magic ball for the background color and a wildly different magic ball for the poppies. It is still my favorite vest to wear year round. I used Shetland that I got from Schoolhouse press and just fell in love with it. Most of my projects are either Shetland or Satakeilli now. Thanks for doing the interview with Kaffe!

  3. Hi David,
    I really enjoyed your interview with Kaffe, I went to see an exhibition of his in Bath here in UK not so long ago. He brings a whole new way of knitting in the way he works, he is first an artist with such an eye for colour and fine art influences, his work based on blue and white china, wich was on show at the gallery I went to was beautiful! There were some of his tapestries too. I always feel inspired when I hear him speak or see his work. It was good to see your photos on here, those cats just look SO relaxed!
    Best wishes
