Kristeen Griffin-Grimes! aka: French Girl
Bonjour! Renaissance Yarns is honored to host Kristeen Griffin-Grimes. Kristeen is a world renown knitwear designer who loves to design without seams. I don't know about you, but I can certainly speak for myself - love those seamless designs! When I'm done knitting a piece, I want to be done!
You can check out Kristeen's amazing designs in her new book French Girl Knits. The piece pictured here is Delphine, knit by Michelle. This gorgeous piece is in Blue Sky Alpaca's Alpaca Silk (a 50/50 blend of alpaca & silk). Below is a close up of the lace work.
Kristeen also puts together several knitting & cooking tours to France. You can learn more about these tours by going to her website. I personally find myself daydreaming about a week in France with Kristeen and a few friends!
