1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

My mother taught me in elementary school. She was the Campfire leader and taught us all how to knit.

2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?

My passion is designing sweaters. Hats are second runner-up.

3 What are you most known for?

Probably my two-end "tvåändsstickning" twined hats. It has been a craze for about four years now with no signs of it slowing down.

4 What season inspires you the most?

Fall and winter. I can't get enough pumpkin spice, chocolate brown and all of the shades of gray that the fall yarns bring. I also love cashmere, angora and just pure wool that can only be worn in the winter months.

5 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?

Between 10 and 15 designs a year.

6 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?

Spinning intrigues me but I'm still too obsessed with knitting to break away long enough to learn something new.

7 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

Having a lazy day with my family, playing in the garden, swatching up new ideas and drinking tea all day long.

8 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?

Pencil and scratch paper to sketch, draft up patterns and two projects to toggle between.
