About | Brandon Knitting Designs Through the years, I have been surrounded by incredibly talented women who have inspired me to find ways to use my creativity. My great grandmother…my grandmother…my mother….and a wonderful woman who was a friend of my mom’s who taught me how to knit when I was eight. Since then…I have taken classes, read books, and tried a lot of techniques…but seem to always return to Fair Isle and Aran designs. On a Rowan Yarn Tour of the Highlands and Islands, I had the absolute pleasure of taking classes with both Alice Starmore and Kaffe Fassette…so you see where my love of color comes from. I’ve even been called “The Colour Lady” by Jamieson & Smith, Shetland Woolbrokers. The highlight of my year is the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting retreat that I coordinate in the mountains of North Carolina every January. Now I design for several yarn companies and myself… and seeing where this trail of yarn will take me.
