Happy Wednesday! Today I would like to share with you slightly different from what I usually do. Apart from a day job and my family, my mind revolves around knitting almost 24 hours a day (honestly, I even dream of it!). I love scrolling through knitwear photography, reading about new designers, creating inspiring mood boards, etc. But at some point I realized how important it is to zone out a little bit and look around you and see the world through different angles and filters. And it’s amazing how much more inspired I am right now to knit and come up with ideas! So, I would like to share with you today my favorite profiles that have absolutely nothing to do with knitting, but that give me ideas, put me in a certain mood and just inspire to knit!
Here are my favorite knitting inspiring non-knitting related profiles:
Dancing magnetic sun fields, distant galaxies shots and views of our little blue planet make me wonder and gasp in awe. And in contrast with all this grand mind-blowing drama going on up there, my knitting feels so familiar and cozy…
Viktoria created such a cozy home in a small apartment in NY – full of light, plants and cute little interior details. Every time I visit her profile, I want to throw on a cotton sweater, grab needles, turn on music, find a cozy corner in my room and knit away!
This young and very talented self-taught photographer and film maker is just one more prove that today you can learn whatever you want and be good at it. The way he “sees” people, nature and cities is so enticing. I don’t know why and how, but after watching his mini-movies, I always feel inspired to pick up my yarn, try, experiment and enjoy every single stitch.
It is so interesting that I keep coming back to this profile when I need a sparkle of inspiration for my knits – I am not that much into cooking and elaborate desserts, but every time I want to create a new visual yarn story, I come here for inspiration. Maybe it’s the styling, or neutral shades or just because these photos show how much Linda loves what she does keep bringing me back here.
The community of travel photographers inspired by Russian nature. I lived all my life in a city I’ve never seen that side of my home country before. The photos make me look around, find beauty in small things and be grateful for the nature I am blessed to be around with right now. And nature and knitting go hand in hand for me.
Sarah Curtin collects wall images in her profile and it is absolutely fascinating – shapes, textures and colors are so inspiring. I often use it as a mood board when I want to come up with something interesting in my knitting projects.
I am always happy to hear where you draw your inspiration for your craft!
