As Marly and Susan chat, they discuss the delightful story of the 13 knitted characters in the book. What makes this book so special is that it’s not only a knitting book, but a story book as well.
Anderson also explains why she made the decision to create all of the projects in Blue Sky Alpacas‘ Spud and Chloe yarn. This is one of those knitting books that you can knit the most whimsical toys, and kids will find them irresistible, and enjoy the charming story about Spud & Chloe!
As Anderson also explains, creating just the right expression on the faces of her characters is an art form in itself. Susan admits that she will often spend a good deal of time reworking the facial expressions until she arrives at just the right one. Finding the cutest look can be tricky business!
Anderson is also very active on her own blog where where she publishes free patterns and hosts knit alongs. For more information, you can visit Susan’s blog here.
