1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

Growing up in Germany I learned how to knit and crochet at school. It was my favorite subject and I haven't stopped since.

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

I enjoy any kind of pattern. Sweaters are what I love the most.

3 What are you most known for?

Insisting in gauges and counting rows.

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

My brain works days and night. I can't stop thinking about what to design next. My days are too short to design all the things I want to and so I keep a list of ideas so I will not forget.

5 What season inspires you the most?

I always find the right project for the right season so I can't say I have a special season. There is always a need for something knitted.

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

It depends on my latest design. If it is a sweater it takes me almost a month for writing the pattern and knitting the model. If it is something less involved like a hat or a baby bootie it may only take me a few days.

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

No. I am obsessed with knitting and crochet. Nothing could make me happy quite like that.

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

I enjoy going to museums with my family since I can knit in the car and walk around in the museum. People look at me a certain way that I enjoy as I walk and knit at the same time and usually it leads to a nice conversation.

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

Measuring tape, calculator and a pen and paper – the ingredients for a pattern!
