There would no be many people with an intrest in textiles, that would not be familiar with the work of Kaffe Fassett. His books are ispiring and a well thumbed resource while I was studying design. I have just ordered this book. Kaffe Fassett: Dreaming in Colour: An Autobiography. Cramed with 500 photos, I am certainly looking out for the postie each day.
I can't claim to have knitted many of his designs, but I did make this jumper for Coen years ago. The wool came from a white jumper that I bought at an op shop. Dyed with my acid milling dyes that I use to dye my tapestry wool.
