1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

My mother and grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet. I would use my pocket money to buy stitch guides and patterns at the local yarn shop on my way home from school.

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

I enjoy working out the best way to make a simple, stylish garment that fits the upper body from size XS through XXL (30-50 inches or 32-52 inches, depending on garment type) and allows movement where it counts.

3 What are you most known for?

Probably my three "Pocket Pal" books of holiday decorations, and my little people (all about three inches tall).

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

Ideas are the easy part! Finding time to create and document them is the challenge.

5 What season inspires you the most?

I live in a climate with four seasons, and they all inspire me.

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

It varies -- last year I designed 10.

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


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

Lying in a hammock or on the sofa in front of a roaring fire, knitting.

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

A stitch gauge check, stitch markers, and a note pad.
