Who’s ready for a blast of colour? Stephanie Lotven of Tellybean Knits joins us today with a blast of brightness.
What inspires you?
Color! I love rainbows, and I am constantly looking for new ways to work rainbows into my designs. I blame my 2 girls for this obsession.
Are you a full-time or part-time designer?
I’m a full time designer and full time mom, so I’ve basically quit sleep.
What’s your favourite thing to design?
Right now I love knitting mittens. I’m crazy for mittens. They are so quick and satisfying. I like to go a little color crazy, and mittens are the perfect place to experiment with colors.
If someone were to knit you a present, what would you most love to receive?
Hats. I love getting knitted hats. I never knit them for myself, so I love receiving them as gifts.
What’s one thing about being a designer that surprised you?
How little knitting is involved. I spend 90% of my time working on marketing, photography, formatting, or customer service. I love all of it, but I thought I would be knitting more when I started designing.
