BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Wednesday, 23 January 2008
It is my pleasure to begin weekly features of talented and hard working women with Andrea of Blue Goose Designs (gorgeous knits and custom work) and Wild Child Yarn (equally yummy hand dyed yarn).
I 'met' Andrea when we worked together on two collaborations in the fall ~ my dye/ paint
work on shirts and her dyed yarn and needles~ when Andrea made the change from her former Baa Baa Naturals to her new Blue Goose Designs. She is a very easy person to work with, strong communication skills and I think anyone looking for yarn or knit work would be pleased with her professionalism and quality work.

I am honoured,that when asked, Andrea cites our Winter Fairy collaboration as one of her favourite pieces of work to date!

The bulk of Andrea's current work is customs. Each customer brings a different vision and each item is unique. She is also passionate about new pattern development. Well, not new, in that she has been working on it for some time! But new in that she is working to publish some of her work. So watch for shorties and soakers for warmer weather, and maybe some patterns in the coming months!

When asked about inspirations, Andrea states that she loves to work with yarn from Stitches Under the Sun. I asked her about her favourite colors~ as a dyer I know how much fun it is to work with colors and how hard it is to choose a favourite combination, but Andrea claims lavender and sage for her favourites (see the Wild Child Yarn logo). She is inspired, or resonates with the following words from an old sampler:
"In the rhythm of the needles, there is music for the soul."

Thank you Andrea for sharing a little bit of your work with me and being my first feature!

You can see more of Andrea's work in her Gallery.
You can find Andrea in her Hyena Cart Shops (linked in the opening sentence) and at her new congo as of February 1st and on her home page.


Watch for our next featured artists in the coming weeks!
