A Knitter For Inspiration

August 30, 2016

There is always a knitter or 2 out there that get you. A quick perusal of their project page has you drooling and re-thinking your current w.i.p.s in a serious way. You adore their colour choices, their combinations of patterns and yarns, and a quick look at their project page leads you straight to the stash, filled with inspiration. For me Laura (aka Undone57 on Ravelry and Undone.57 on Instagram) is that knitter. Her most recent triumph is this stunning Fly Away blanket, but there is so much more!

Laura's layout, just in case you are as inspired as I am!

We have featured Laura’s knitting here once before, she completed the 12 sweaters in 2015 challenge with a family set of Christmas in July sweaters. When I saw her lovely combinations I knew I wanted to cast on for one (or 3) myself!

In case it wasn’t obvious, I’ve been particularly smitten with all kinds of colourwork lately and I would be remiss if I didn’t add in this adorable Playdate Cardigan. Laura has added a simple little fair isle pattern all over and the effect is awesome. Who knew scrappy could look so good?!

Even in her accessories and details, I love all of the cool colour combinations and cute photos!

You can see why it is so much fun to see what Laura is knitting! As soon as I saw her Fly Away I wanted to cast on for one of my own (even though I still have one that just needs seaming….). Which knitter inspires you?

    Your patterns inspire me! (I know that sounds like the usual suck-up comment) But, I’ve already purchased the Bounce Blanket pattern and the yarn kit to knit up for a grandchild who isn’t even conceived, yet !!

    Yup. Makes me want to sit and knit and knit and knit :)

    Where does one get Laura’s patterns? They are inspirational. The photography is good also.

      Hi Mairead – agreed! The photography really makes it drool-worthy. Laura knits all kinds of patterns, if you check out her Ravelry page all the patterns are linked there
