Blog of the Month: RedSilvia

February 25, 2013

This month's blog, Sil's Fab Knit Blog, is another of my faves that I have been following since my early knitting days. I discovered Silvia back in 2007, maybe earlier and it is simply because she is amazing. I can't remember if I ran across one of her amazing knitting projects or if it was sewing (yes, she does both!) I was dabbling in both back then though heavily on the knitting side since it was shiny and new. Silvia is a very prolific knitter and her projects seem to always be flawless, lovely and perfectly fitted. Silvia's is not afraid of bold print or bright colors. She experiments with many new yarns and color combos. Her sewing projects are a great balance of classic and trendy.

Silvia's upcycling projects are a hoot to read about and also bring hope to every girl's lone drawer of t-shirts that are too big, too obscure or too ugly to be worn but for whatever reason are also not to be thrown out. She turns them into underwear. How fun is that? Her underwear has introduced me to the world of elastic lace for panties instead of fold over.

Silvia has a plethora of projects in both yarn and fabric that I so want to recreate from my own stash. And she can knit anyone I know under the table. I could not even turn out projects like than back when I was a swinging single with not children or dogs to tie up all my time. I don't know how she does it but I suspect she has 4 arms. Her writing, style and sense of humor are also my cup of tea. I find myself giggling when catching up on her blog. She is a little dry and a little silly, just what I look for in a good knitting/sewing/crafty blog. I encourage you to check out Silvia's blog; I am sure you will be as inspirited as I am.
