Mosaic & Lace Knits
Barbara Benson is the author of Mosaic & Lace Knits: 20 Innovative Patterns Combining Slip-Stitch Colorwork and Lace Techniques.

Detailed, creative and innovative knitted accessory patterns that are well written, yarn conscious, and fun to knit.

My work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. I love a small project because it means I can conceivably get it done within a month or two, instant gratification on a knitting timeline. Also, I despise weaving in ends. If I can get away with only one or two skeins of yarn then I have fewer ends to weave in.

While my first love is lace, color-work is a close second (mosaic in particular) and I have a definite soft spot for interesting textures. I keep waiting for cables to seize my imagination and can foresee the day when they become an obsession, but that day has not yet arrived. One obsession that has arrived and is here to stay is photography.
