There are many different websites and on-line sources where you can view and buy knitting patterns, including Craftsy, Etsy, Kollabora, LoveKnitting, Ravelry and many more.
They seem to operate very happily next to each other as they each have their own character in terms of what they offer and their range of interests. It is also true to say that people get quite attached to one or another of these sites and will usually make it their "Go To" place. Perhaps the pattern search might suit you better on one site or the photo displays and knitting details might be appealing in another.
One of the sites that I like working with is Kollabora. It is a fairly recent on-line source and I love the vitality and energy of the team behind it. You can feel their enthusiasm when you post a new project or upload a pattern. Their newsletters and updates fairly pulse with bright ideas coming from all different styles of textile crafts.
So, I felt very honoured when they asked if they could feature me in their series Nora Meets the Maker and the interview was published this week. I was initially wondering if I could find some pictures of me knitting outside, only to realize that in almost every photo I had knitting in my hands! Ah well, it's good to have obsessions...
Kollabora are also featuring my FFCT Wrap - Feather & Fan, Cables & Tulips this week, with a 20% discount just in time for some great Spring-time knitting. There are more details about the FFCT Wrap here, and I also posted about the inspiration for the wrap here.
The Kollabora offer is running until May 5th, so please head over to my Kollabora pattern collection and have a look at that soon.
I hope you enjoy reading the article - let me know what you think!
