As a freelance copy editor and transcriptionist (and a student again as well!), I happily work for myself from home, which generally allows me to knit and craft and create when the mood strikes.
For me, knitting and crocheting has evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between.

This plum throw was partially inspired by Indian kantha throws and its influence can be seen in the incorporation of different textures and colours in the construction of the blanket. This throw would make a perfect picnic blanket, baby blanket, small bedspread, and would even work on a floor as an area rug.
To knit this throw, you will need a 5mm circular needle, 15 skeins of Vanna's Choice yarn, a 5mm crochet hook or sewing needle, and a stitch holder.
