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’m not sure this is going to be a surprise to anyone who knows us, but I’m going to say Janis. She’s encouragement and inspiration, and every time we get together I find that I become newly enthused about this hobby that I already love. And she knits SO FAST. Just look at all of this! (Ravelry projects page.)

What I am sure of is this: I may have wanted to knit, but seeing the beautiful projects that came from her needles really motivated me to pick up the skills fast. We learned to spin at the same time, I helped get her a wheel and she helped talk me into buying mine, we challenged each other to handspun socks (because what good is handspun yarn if you never knit it up?), yarn shopping just isn’t the same without her, I can’t go into a yarn shop without thinking “those colours would be perfect for Janis,” and if she’s not blushing now then I don’t know what will do it!

So… thanks, Janis. :)
