What are your favorites right now?
Yarn Store: An online store Love Knitting. I haven’t got a good local yarn store nearby, the last one closed down.
Yarn: I’m allergic to most wool and break out in a massive rash so I always knit with acrylic (unless it’s for someone else). I absolutely love the squishiness of mohair.
Why do you knit? I love the feeling of accomplishment after I have finished a piece of knitting or crochet. Nothing beats wearing a piece of your knitwear and someone asking you where you bought it.
Most challenging project (and why)? I recently finished my first fair isle/nordic sweater (pictured). It was a pattern I found on Ravelry that was actually in Norwegian. I put it through google translate and kind of made it up as I went along. It’s beautiful!
What’s your new favorite thing? Probably my love for tattoos. I’ve always liked them but after getting my first one I’m kind of addicted. Full leg sleeve here I come! Although, I’ll most likely end up being completely covered.
