Yarning For You – A Special Place For Knitting
  • November3rd

    Irina will be here Friday November 13 with a trunk show and all of her patterns! Please come in and meet this innovate designer you will be glad you did. Irina will begin teaching at YfY in 2016 and she would love to chat with you about which classes you would like her to teach. See you Friday.

    About Irina:
    Growing up in Russia, I was surrounded by people who knit. It was not considered something unusual or difficult, it was just something almost every woman did. Knitters I knew were not “scared” by a problem, nobody found a technique “frightening” or a pattern “complicated”. Those were not the words I would ever have associated with knitting. And quickly I have realized that even with basic skills any knitter can make unique and well-fitted garments. This approach eventually brought my hobby to the next level, where I have started to design knitting patterns. Now living in California, to where my family moved in 2011, I found a big community of knitters and was fascinated by the growth of this industry over the past few years. And I am happy to share the confidence and independent way of knitting I adopted from generations of my crafty European ancestors.

    You can find her on Ravelry under the nickname Hibis411 or by my name (Irina Anikeeva): http://www.ravelry.com/designers/irina-anikeeva
