When did you start crocheting, and why?
“I began crocheting in 2014 during college for anxiety and stress relief.”
What are your favorite items to create and why?
“My favorite items to create are sweaters because ‘swedda wedda’ is the best ‘wedda’!“
Tell us about a design you are particularly proud of, and what sets it apart from the crowd?
“The Winterberry Sweater is one sweater I am most proud of. It was the design that became the deciding factor for me – that I want to do this!”
Will you show us your contribution to the December MAL?
Tell us a few features of this design and what you love about it?
“What I love about the For the Love of Bobbles Wrap, is that it features bobbles! Even though it’s a lacy design, I paired it with WeCrochet Gloss DK and the warmth is exceptional. I love all my designs, but this one is a favorite!“
(This is a truly brilliant design!!! So much texture and such a unique use of both techniques! Click the green line above to buy the beautifully formated PDF of this pattern!)
Do you make other things besides yarn art? What are your hobbies or other products in your business?
“I don’t make other things outside of crochet however, I love doing photography-it was my baby before crochet-and I write poetry from time to time.”
Tell me something that you wish more people understood?
“I’m so happy to have met many friends on social media, however, being on social media overwhelms me at times. I am a very private and introverted person. Those two things do not go hand in hand with having an online-based small business. I wish people would grasp that concept more and give a little grace at times.“
(I love this thought! It’s so important to have boundaries around our energy! Social media makes it seem like we should be available at all times. I think it’s so important to keep business hours, and not expect others to be on all the time!)
Will you show us a few of the things you have designed or made?
