1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?
My grandmother gave me a small intro to crochet when I was a child, but I didnít want to hold still long enough to learn! Much later, when I came down with mononucleosis, I had to hold still. I hated it. I got hold of a how-to book and some yarn, and Iíve been "hooked" ever since!
2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?
Iím torn between my hats and my shawls! If I add another type of garment to my collection, it will be my favorite too!
3 What are you most known for?
My flower hats are my most popular so far, but my lacey shawls are catching up.
4 How do you jump-start your creativity?
I love to look at classic styles from decades ago. I also take pictures in gardens for ideas. Then I try to choose the right materials based on the inspiration. A trip to the yarn shop creates inspiration by reversing the challenge -- I have a color and texture that I love, now what can I make out of it?
5 What season inspires you the most?
Late spring and early summer, when the colors are vibrant and the natural world is very active. Yes, I realize the irony that I design and make warm garments that are usually worn in the winter!
6 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?
I love everything crafty, so of course! I do sew and knit and spin and embroider. I would like to get better at beading and learn ceramics someday.
7 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Hiking outside, and then sitting in the sun with a ball of yarn and a cup of tea.
8 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?
Too much yarn, several hooks, and my notebook. I always manage to forget my scissors.
