I love the unique shade of pale green and the beautiful lacy structure, achieved by combining different yarns. A beautiful shawl for every season.

About

..more jazz then classics

The birth of the «Bonnies Cinematheque» has been predetermined by two qualities of mine: I love to knit, and I am lazy.
I took knittle needles in my hands when I was a child, and I loved it so much, but all these knitting patterns, the crosses, the arrows, the schemes that seem more complicated than a spaceship, made me anxious, and, in fact, they still do.

It seemed that my destiny was to knit scarfs and other simple things, but a happy coinsedence happended once. I washed one of my creatures, a very simple sweater, in a washing mashine, and it got much smaller then it was before. Well, - I decided, - the sweater is ruined anyway, let's see, what I can do, and I took scissors in my hand. I cut it into pieces, added some new rows, added some fabrics, some parts I even put into the dryer again to make them really look felted. Then I sewed it all together - and got a very original sweater at the end, which inspired me for the future experiments.

What I basically do since then, is that I just take the material I like and free its potential - I follow all the magical possibilities it gives me, I try understand its nature and embody it in a certain form.

I don't use any ready-made patterns. I rather improvise them on the run, and in this case my works are more jazz then classics.

    I love harmony. I love beauty. I love creating things. And I always feel touched when other people find the things I made beautiful.
