Michele Lee Bernstein, PDXKnitterati, designs and teaches from her home base in Portland, Oregon. She loves designing accessories, especially if they use one or two skeins of very special yarn. She’s fond of texture (brioche, lace, entrelac, elongated stitches), and loves using interesting techniques to make small objects sing. Her patterns are available through Ravelry and Payhip.
Michele loves teaching knitters to be the boss of their knitting! She teaches at local yarn shops, fiber festivals (Vogue Knitting Live, Red Alder Fiber Arts Festival, Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival), guild meetings, and retreats.
Michele’s new book, Knit Brioche Love: 21 Skill Building Projects from Simple to Sublime combines her love for teaching and designing, using simple accessories to take knitters from the easiest one color brioche through more complex brioche techniques.
Michele blogs about knitting, food, and music at PDXKnitterati.com. You can also find her on Instagram, Facebook, Ravelry, YouTube, and Twitter; she’s PDXKnitterati on all platforms.
You can preorder Brioche Knit Love here.
Our friends at Apple Fiber Studio invited us to participate in a new limited-edition color of the month offering--the PrettyPretty Yarn Club--and we think that the October color, Fall Leaf, is swoon-worthy! These colorways are dyed up on Gala, a 75% Merino wool / 25% nylon sock base, and when they're gone, well, you'll just have to wait for the next month's gorgeous option!
One of the questions I posed during the Have a Ball Fall Crawl giveaways had to do with favorite crochet designers. Here are links to some of the responses (along with responses from a similar question posed to my shop owner friends):
Kira K Designs (Kira designs both crochet & knit patterns)
Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby (both crochet & knit)
