1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

At the age of 12, I discovered a long-forgotten "How to Crochet" book in the living room closet and promptly began to teach myself to crochet! Shortly thereafter, I learned how to knit from a library book.

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

To be honest, it's whatever I'm doing at the moment. My mind thrives on change, so I might be designing a cable knit wool hat on one day and a lace crochet silk shawl on the next.

3 What are you most known for?

The novel use of pattern stitches and clear, comprehensive written instructions.

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

I scan all the wonderfully creative work on Pinterest and Ravelry. And eat chocolate.

5 What season inspires you the most?

I enjoy what every season has to offer.

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

Lately, I've been averaging 35-40 patterns a year.....and I'm exhausted!

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

I'd love to learn how to weave someday.

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

When you run a business, every day is a work day, so Sunday afternoon is no different than Monday afternoon. (But I love what I do.)

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

Believe it or not, I don't own any craft bags. My whole house is my "craft bag" since all my works-in-progress are strewn throughout.
