I have had a long love affair with fashion. In the early years of childhood and adolescence, that love affair reared itself in sewing, sewing everything under the sun. During the height of Buffalo’s infamous blizzard of ’77, the focus turned to knitting due to the kindness and skill of a neighbor. I was immediately smitten and changed gears. Social media, and websites such as Ravelry, where I am theyarnista, began filling me with inspiration. The concept of fashionscape was founded as a creative way to photograph my hand knits and hollyknits, an avenue to share my experiences. Raising my family as well as a lengthy career in public education were unrelated pleasures through those years. To this day, I remain enthusiastic and excited about fashion forward knitting.
