Staff recommended designer Dan Doh will be featured at the shop from now until May 30th.
We love Dan Doh’s creative take on drape and shaping. Her inspiration stems from her pleasure in exploring different textures of yarn as well as stitch patterns. According to her, the yarn tells her how it wants to be worked. She likes to keep the shape of garments simple enough to enjoy and show the interesting fabric that you make by hand.
Yumiko Alexander born in Japan and always loved to design, knit and crochet. She started sharing her designs with knitters and crocheters after I moved to the US. Seeing how people imbue her designs with their own ideas of color, fiber and style inspire her to keep designing.
We can’t wait for you to see her designs in person here at ImagiKnit!
