Meet local knitting designer, Cheryl Niamath:
She’s a fantastic designer whose first pattern, Fetching, was published in Summer Knitty 06. We have to admit, we were a bit surprised to see Cheryl in Knitty knowing that she’d knit her first scarf just two years earlier (bright green Garnstudios Eskimo, fyi). That’s right, other than a few early attempts at knitting with her granny, this girl hadn’t touched a set of needles before Summer, 04.
And now there are almost 7,000 ravelers who have posted Fetching photos. Unbelievable.
Cheryl’s become a prolific creative force and we’re loving her designs. Anina and Becky knit these adorable Sprout hats:
Cheryl’s excited about her new Fall designs. Her beautiful skirt pattern, ‘Inari’ is in Fall Knitscene. And her gorgeous wrap design, ‘False Modesty’ was published in the first issue of Knotions, another fabulous new e-zine. She’s even cracked Winter Interweave Knits with a fantastic mitten design. Very cool.
Kudos Cheryl! Your designs are incredibly inspiring. Keep up the excellent work.
