amirisu: If you were to knit this design in another color, what would it be?
Teti: Oatmeal and all the colours you imagine thinking about bright warm autumn. Luckily, Le Petit Lambswool comes in so many beautiful colours and shades.
amirisu: How did you start your knitting journey?
Teti: I started knitting to escape the everyday life of a PhD student. In the evenings and during the weekends. Learning everything by watching others and fearlessly casting on new things. Since knitting was a rebellion against strict lab protocols I had to follow during the day, I avoided patterns. That was how I became a designer.
amirisu: Do you have a favorite museum or work of art? Please tell us a little about it.
Teti: All the ethnographic museums. I mean, all of them, no matter where in the world I am. Especially the sections with traditional clothing. I can spend hours studying the cuts, embroidery techniques, all the patterns and elements. I also draw a lot of inspiration from my own Ukrainian heritage. And nature of course. There's always something magical happening in nature, we just have to be present to notice it and translate in what we do. For me now that's designing knitting patterns.
幸い、Le Petit Lambswoolは美しい色がたくさん揃っていますね。
