This week’s special Thursday podcast guest: Melissa Wehrle!
Melissa has a great new book out with Interweave called Metropolitan Knits, all designs inspired by Melissa’s hometown (for the last 15+ years), New York City! Each season is represented by rich colors, and beautiful designs named after different parts of New York!
My Grandmother taught me how to knit when I was seven years old. However, I quickly lost interest making Barbie tube dresses and put down the needles for several years. My passion was renewed when I moved to New York City to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where I majored in Fashion Design and specialized in knitwear.(via)
Maria has worked in the fashion industry for nearly a decade, and has learned so much along the way. Currently she is a Senior Sweater Designer for a sweater manufacturer in New York City.
In her free time, she designs handknit patterns for neoknits, a number of small yarn companies, and has been featured in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and Twist Collective.
