Your Knitting or Crochet Hero - 3KCBWDAY3

Did you all miss me yesterday?
Yeah, yeah - I know, like a hole in the head...

Anyway, today's topic is something I am happy to contribute to, so let's see what we will be talking about:

Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero
Blog about someone in the fibre crafts who truly inspires you. There are not too many guidelines for this, it's really about introducing your readers to someone who they might not know who is an inspiration to you. It might be a family member or friend, a specific designer or writer, indie dyer or another blogger. If you are writing about a knitting designer and you have knitted some of their designs, don't forget to show them off. Remember to get permission from the owner if you wish to use another person's pictures. 

To be honest I have not any specific person that I would class as my knitting or crocheting hero/guru.
There is so much inspiration out there in the www and I take delight in many little things from here, there and everywhere.

I have blogged before about the artwork that Marcel Wanders and Joana Vasconelos crochet and if there is anyone around I would class as my "I-am-in-awe-at-what-you-do" guys, they'd be it. I just love to look at their creations but I would not want to try to do anything similar.

There are oodles of blogs I look to for inspiration, which I faithfully follow through my Google Reader. But I have noticed that a number of them only inspire me for a certain amount of time and then get bored on move onto others.

Currently I am always excited when I see new posts popping up on these blogs (in no particular order)
