    Today I'm talking to Brandon Mably of the Kaffe Fassett Collective. After a chance meeting with Kaffe Fassett in the late eighties, Brandon made a radical career change from cooking to knitting and began a mentorship under Kaffe that led him to running the Kaffe Fassett Studio and carving out his own creative career that has lasted decades. We'll chat about his story and what continues to inspire his work.
