Simone Young is a trailblazer in the male dominated world of classical music. She is the current Chief conductor of the SSO and was famously the first woman to conduct the Vienna State Opera, amongst many other accolades and firsts.
She is also a knitter! We posed a few questions for her recently…
2022 : October Project Highlight
Nothing brings the knitting community together like a Westknits MKAL!
It's an opportunity to connect with local knitters and share the ups (and sometimes downs) of knitting during the month of October. We love our growing MKAL tribe and deepening friendships while knitting together. So, we thought it would be fun to ask Nicole to share her first MKAL experience with us. Nicole’s shawl is stunning and we loved what she created from the left overs!
2022 : September Project Highlight
We love Emilie's whimsical Effervescent pullover. Knitted in a beautiful sea glass shade of Skein Yarn Coastal, it sparkles and fizzes just as the pattern implies. The blend of merino and cotton with a matching ruffle in silk mohair make it the perfect pullover for spring days at the beach.
2022 : August project highlight
A stunning project featuring Zauberball 100 gradient yarn from Schoppel. Zauberball translates to magic ball and we couldn't agree more seeing the results Jenni has achieved with her latest shawl. The deep v shape and subtle lace showcases the pretty lilac hues of this gradient yarn perfectly.
2022 : July project highlight
This project made my day. I couldn't resist asking a few extra questions of Grace so that I could share the details for everyone to enjoy.
