Meet Nimmo from Nairobi, Kenya! Nimmo is a former fashion and jewelry designer turned knitting addict, and lover of nature and classic movies.

The photos were taken at Lukenya Hills Athi River in Machakos County

What are your favorites right now?
Yarn Store: Freeman’s at Biashara Street in Nairobi.

Yarn: Knit Me Chunky.

Why do you knit? It’s a lot of fun, very addictive and therapeutic!

Most challenging project (and why)? I am currently designing my own cropped sweater pattern and knitting it at the same time. I’m winging it, and probably breaking knitting rules like checking my gauge, an aspect that I struggle with. I hope that I am able to pull it off (fingers crossed!)

What’s your new favorite thing? I love watching old classic movies. My favorites are the original James Bond in Dr. No, and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.
