Humans That Yarn: Sincerely Louise


Q: What's the longest time you have spent working on one project?

A: "The project that had the most hours spent working on it has to be the tiger rug from my book (Faux Taxidermy Knits). The tiger uses almost three kilos of yarn and is knitted on 15mm needles, so he's a big project. When I started designing him I spent a day knitting him on one strand of super chunky on 10mm needles only to find it wasn't quite right. So to my boyfriends dismay I ripped the whole thing back and started again using two strands held together. The new tiger took another 50 hours of knitting, I'll never forget this as I didn't sleep whist designing him!"
