Meet Michelle from New Zealand! Michelle lived in Europe for the last 18 years, and this year moved to Sydney to take her Masters degree in primary teaching. She has the ocean at the end of her street, so spends a lot of time there knitting and day dreaming.
What are your favorites right now?
Yarn Store: Skein Sisters is a new yarn shop in Sydney that has an amazing range of yarns.
Yarn: I love yarn companies that really care about the provenance of their product, the environment, and sustainability, so I have three favourites: Blackisle Yarns, Blacker yarns & Wool Days
Why do you knit? I began knitting because I used to be a touring musician, and there was a lot of time hanging around whilst on the road. It all started with a granny square amplifier cover… Now I love it because it is (mostly) a relaxing pursuit that ends up in a functional and beautiful item. I really wouldn’t know myself if I wasn’t making something.
Most challenging project? The biggest challenge is being balanced. I want to knit all the things, all the time. I’m not very disciplined and do tend to overindulge in my habit, but I know I’m not the only one!
What’s your new favorite thing? I bought an organic wool mattress and pillows which is absolute bliss, and I’m so happy that I’m surrounded by good wool day and night now.
