Portrait of a Knitter with Donna Druchunas

An interview I did recently.

Eddie: Why knitting?

Donna: I particularly like the portability, and the ability to explore so much creativity in such small projects. The fact that I learned to knit as a little girl also makes me slightly sentimental about knitting. I am primarily interested in historical and traditional knitting techniques and motifs from around the world. I am also interested in how these things from the past can be updated and used in contemporary situations. Even though knitting is my main craft I also love to spin and dye my own yarns, and I also crochet. I’ve done just about every craft there is over the years, but the fiber arts are what attract me most these days.
