We, Shibaguyz Designz (Designer), do solemnly grant you (Maker), permission in perpetuity (that means for forever) to make any and all projects from any and all of our patterns past, present, and future (again, forever) in any color you deem necessary to please your personal tastes or those tastes of the person you are making said project for. This permission applies without regard to the color of the project pictured in the pattern since that color is, mostly, the choice of the Designer (us) based on Designer's (us again) personal preferences or is based on the color preferences of our editor ("them").
Further, these same permissions shall apply for all time (FOR-EH-VAR!) to personal choices of yarn content, yarn brand, type of hook or needles used, whether or not you think the model is attractive, or any other variant of choices possible.
These permissions shall apply forever and ever and ever and always and anyone who says otherwise is a doo-doo head (that's official legal jargon there, folks) and we will send a herd of demented wombats after them for saying so (hey… it could happen).
With these permissions, go forth and create, experiment, and make with joy and wild abandon according to your personal preferences and tastes because that's what makes YOU a FAB person and you should strut your FAB stuff (more technical legal stuff there) as often as possible.
This post ended up as part 1 in an emotional journey documenting their work and paying our respects to the women, both past and present, whose hands created these functional pieces of home decor that ended up being venerated as artwork in our home today. More than that, they have become reminders to us of the values of the craftspeople who have come before us and have created a standard by which we now create our work in our design studios.
The most common question we are asked is about what inspires me as a designer. Sometimes the answer is difficult to articulate and I shrug my shoulders and say "Everything!"
By answering that way, I'm not trying to be flippant…
The truth of the matter is, I can't help but be inspired by the people and places I'm surrounded by every day. The music we play in our studios; the colors, shapes, and structures I encounter on a daily basis; the textures and shapes we see on our meandering around this amazing area we live in… all of these influence me.
Rather than trying to put it into words, we have paired up some of the images Jason captures on our journeyings with our designs. Look for more of these in the coming months. We will post more sets as the mood… or the inspiration… strikes. Enjoy.
