Knitters have a huge treat in store: the chance to sit and knit with Kaffe Fassett.
Kaffe is a marvelous storyteller, with a marvelous life.
Andrea Doig of the Fruity Knitting podcast has done a wonderful interview with Kaffe at his London home and studio.
There’s so much to enjoy: great company, gorgeous eye candy, a lively game of spot-that-pattern for quilts, needlepoints, and knitwear, fun name-dropping and blasts from the past, snooping at the many layers of art all around—it’s the essential Kaffe Fassett, in all his rich, kaleidoscopic splendor.
If you don’t know Kaffe Fassett, you’ve got so much ahead of you. And if you do know his work, it’s even better, like hanging out with a beautiful friend who has outsize energy and talent—and the finest collection of needlepoint cushions in the world.
I’ve linked the interview up top. Enjoy!
Wait there’s more! Stay tuned for another Fruity Episode with Kaffe, coming up mid-December….
Thanks so much to Fruity Knitting for this gift to knitters and lovers of beauty.
