greetings

from Quince & Co.

Last year we asked you to send us ideas for scarves, and you did. We had such a grand response to our first scarf call, that we sang for more this year. And you obliged. You sent us many, many wonderful submissions. And, for better or worse, we indulged. Instead of the twelve we meant to publish, we give you seventeen things that go 'round the neck. We could have published several collections with the material we had on offer, but this little collection stands for the year 2013. May the pieces herein give you knitting pleasure and keep you warm and cozy.

Pam

Dani Berg

Melanie Berg

I’ve been a passionate knitter since I first took up the needles in 2001. I design to stay sane while raising two children and a husband in my suburban Chicagoland home.  Surrounded by homework, housework, and the daily drama that life can bring, there's nothing more satisfying than sitting down with a glass of red wine, a fresh skein of yarn, and dogs at my feet to make me appreciate how full and fabulous my life has become. And the truth is, I wouldn't change it for anything.  (Well, maybe for a basket full of money and a maid, but that's another story...)

In my real life I'm an IT-specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear. As soon as I started knitting I was bitten by the bug, my stash grew continuously and very soon I found out: It's not possible NOT to design! I love the creative freedom I have, the million possibilities to combine color, shape, and material, and the everlasting process of learning something new.

I've been knitting for nearly 15 years, but it seems as though I've been doing it even longer; I can't imagine my life without it. I live in the NYC area and it's my goal to translate my little slice of this ever-changing and utterly unique environment into modern, wearable knits. I capture my inspirations, my adventures, and everything in between on my blog and Ravelry.

I have lived in Michigan my entire life and love it. I have also been knitting almost my entire life. My mother taught me when I was 9 or 10 years old. I knitted through high school and college, when it wasn’t nearly as cool an activity as it is now. I’m married and have three daughters.

Elisa Contolini

Rachel Coopey

I live in Milan with Mr. G, a five year-old daughter, and a lazy black cat, Mrs. Ada. I love spending time on my tiny balcony, which overlooks a long line of backyard gardens, and dreaming of Tuscany countryside. I start my mornings with a cafe latte, believe in coincidences, and cover miles by walking without realizing how far I've gone. One of my favorite things in life is knitting very late at night when I’m the only one awake in my silent home.

I was taught to knit by my grandmother and mother, and I still have the extremely long garter stitch scarf to prove it. The focus of my designs are small and intricate pieces that are both beautiful and functional. I especially love designing and knitting socks. You can read about my constant quest for warm feet, ever growing sock yarn collection, and my knitting and spinning adventures on my blog.

Paula Emons-Fuessle Knitting is my passion! I learned to knit in Denmark and then found Elizabeth Zimmermann's books. I share my passion on my weekly podcast, Knitting Pipeline, available on iTunes and at www.knittingpipeline.com. Another big part of my life is playing bagpipes with Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums, a competition and performance band in Peoria, Illinois. I've had my own home business for 30 years which has allowed me flexibility to pursue many interests. When I'm not knitting or playing the pipes I enjoy walking for health and fitness, studying birds and nature, and reading. Each of my designs is the result of wanting to knit a particular item and working it out. My favorite designs are ones that give the impression of being complicated to knit but really are quite simple. I live with my husband by a woods in Central Illinois where we enjoy nature every single day. You can find me on Ravelry as PrairiePiper and as moderator of the Knitting Pipeline Group.

One lazy summer afternoon, I pulled the book Teach Yourself to Knit the Easy Columbia-Minerva Way out of my grandmother’s old knitting basket, and a new obsession was born. My favorite animal is the rhinoceros.

I’ve been knitting non-stop since 2004 and live with my husband and three children in Billings, Montana. Absolutely anything can inspire me. I love to look at the color combinations and designs in nature, any type of magazine, and all kinds of fabric. Even the shapes of vintage jewelry can spark ideas for lace patterns. My first book, Expand Your Knitting Skills, is now available from Leisure Arts.

Karalee Harding

Kyle Kunnecke

I used to be an assistant professor of Classics, which means I can read ancient Greek and Latin—an almost entirely useless skill in the 21st century. Now I knit and spin whenever two rambunctious kittens allow (I’m trying to teach them, with limited success so far, that Yarn Is Not A Toy). I live in a drafty old house on the foggy side of San Francisco, where it is rarely too warm to wear wool.

I strive to develop work that's interesting, empowering, and sometimes educational. Currently, my days are spent working in HIV testing and providing support at a mental health clinic. When I get home to my studio, I'm surrounded by my spinning wheels, looms, dyeing equipment and fiber, and my life feels perfectly balanced between being creative and working to make a difference. Knowing the arts have the power to heal, I'm always looking for new ways to encourage creativity in others. I believe our experiences influence our work, which is why I go to as many retreats, workshops, fiber mills, and yarn shops as possible. To learn more about my work, visit my blog and website.

Lily May Lewis

Alicia Plummer

I live in the beautiful medieval city of York in the UK where I like to knit, renovate old furniture, and play the flute. My knitwear design is inspired by striking prints, unusual color combinations, and early 20th century fashion.

I’m a freelance knitwear designer and homemaker and I live in the beautiful Lakes Region of Maine. I’m charmingly disorganized, love to laugh, and often ramble. When I’m not knitting or spinning, I’m working on building up the homestead with my husband, running around outside with my girls, or buying local!

Natalie Servant

Ever since I learned to knit 10 years ago, I’ve been hooked, and I try to knit every day. My favorite knits are simple ones made with beautiful yarn. You'll find both luxury fibers and more rustic, woolly yarns in my stash. I love to support small businesses and the people who are living their dreams by doing what they love. 

I’m a lifelong crafter. I’ve been knitting for decades and am an avid spinner. I work as a software tester and think that many of my work skills are also helpful to me as a designer. I’ve been actively designing knitting patterns for the last five years. My patterns range from simple to complex and reflect my exploration of varied inspirations including color, techniques, and texture. A great deal of my patterns draw from Art Nouveau and Art Deco era designs, objects, and architecture.

Tess Young I live in northwest England with my partner, two rescue dogs, and two rescue cats. These companions enrich my life immeasurably, bringing great joy and plenty of exasperation; I’ll leave you to decide which brings which. For their part they often see me disappearing into my stash of yarn, vintage patterns, textiles and haberdashery, often to the sound of ‘ah,’ ‘ooh,’ and ‘argh,’ as pretty and precious items are either rediscovered or declared ‘lost.’ My designs are influenced by the south coast I grew up on and the northwest coast on which I now live. My shared love of mountains leads to summer road trips and much hiking in Europe. These landscapes influence how I think about color, form and structure, and function and wearability. However, I also love the built environment and how we can build striking design into our everyday lives through mindful consideration of the spaces we inhabit. This too, I aim to capture in my designs, inspired by often fleeting experiences and lasting memories. On Ravelry: TessVintageKnits Blog/Website: www.fibrefables.wordpress.com
