Designer Spotlight: Lily Chin's Versatile Styles and Skills

Designer Spotlight: Lily Chin | Lion Brand NotebookSomething I love about working in the yarn industry is all of the creative people you meet. Working with designers, artists, and writers constantly inspires me. One of my favorite people in the industry is extremely prolific designer Lily Chin.

Look her up on Amazon.com or Ravelry and you'll find dozens of books and individual designs, ranging from accessible accessories to complex cables—reversible, no less!

But don't take my word for it! Here are a few podcasts and videos from our collections featuring interviews with Lily herself:

    I love that Lily combines both knitting and crocheting in one project. Go Lily!

    Met Lily once at a Stitches East event in Baltimore. A warm and lovely person, but I heard she has a wicked sense of humor! Would love to take a class with her some day!
