Donna Wilson is a Scottish designer, now based in London, who produces all manner of delightful stuff for the home. Donna is passionate about creating products that people can connect to and treasure, and I think this bunch of whimsical knitted cats certainly fulfills her brief.
Donna’s knitted felines are inspired by the way that young children draw – with no preconceived ideas, and skewed scale and perspective – which gives them a naive charm all of their own. I also love the fact that she takes the time to consider each cat’s likes and dislikes.
There’s Patch Cat who ‘likes dancing in the moonlight and dislikes awkward silences.’
Ginge Cat who ‘Loves kisses and cherry cola. Dislikes thunder and lightning.’
Mono Cat who ‘loves mint humbugs, and likes crossing zebra crossings.’
Mitten Kitten who’s ‘witty and sneaky’ and ‘likes playing hide and seek, and dislikes tomatoes.’
And Tig who ‘likes tinned sardines and playing hide and seek.’
Donna Wilson also has a blog, which is well worth following if you like her designs, as she keeps you informed of her latest products, and has the occasional giveaway.
