All this month, we’ve been sharing about our 2023 Knitter’s Planner designers. The final designer we’d like to share about is Angela Tong of Angela Tong Designs, who designed the Moonshade Hat and Scarf set!
Angela’s designs have been published in magazines, books and yarn company pattern collections such as Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit Simple, Noro Knitting Magazine, Knit ‘N Style, and PetitePurls.com, Scarf Style 2, Free-Spirit Shawls: 20 Eclectic Knits for Every Day, Classic Elite Shawls, Wraps & Scarves, Crochet Noro: 30 Dazzling Designs and Knit Noro Accessories and Classic Elite Yarns. She is one busy lady!
Angela is certainly not new to the Knitter’s Planner family! She designed the Retro Kerchief and Mitts for the very first edition of the Knitter’s Planner, and the Cadence Lollipop Cowl for 2022.
She was also featured in a promotional video for the Planner that can be found on our home page.
The Moonshade Hat and Scarf Set is great way to play with three colors. You will work with only one color at a time. The 3 Color Slip Stripe pattern makes a beautiful patterned fabric, and there are endless color combinations.
We asked Angela a few questions to get to know her better:
Tell us a little about the yarn you worked with for your project.
Berroco Ultra Alpaca has a big color palette. It’s perfect for color work because you can make so many color combinations.
Do you have a favorite local yarn shop you’d like to share about?
I don’t have any favorite yarn shops. But I always love visiting yarn shops if I am visiting a new place. Supporting small businesses is super important to me. It’s always fun to bring home a skein or two as a souvenir.
Tell us about your other hobbies.
My husband says that I have too many hobbies, but I don’t pay any attention to that. I love creating things and learning new things. Since last fall, I have been learning to wet felt and it is so much fun. Pottery is a passion hobby for me and I consider it art therapy when I got into the pottery studio.
Angela shared a picture of her creative space. With a space that beautiful, we bet it’s hard to not have a lot of creative hobbies!
You can learn more about Angela on her website, find her on Ravelry, or visit her Instagram.
