Tell us why you like knitting/crocheting. Or, why you would like to learn.

I will start off with a confession, I can't read a knitting or crochet pattern. That left me with freeform knitting and crochet . I love touching and playing with yarns and choosing colours that are sometimes complementary but often those that 'clash' with each other according to traditional colour 'theory.' We have lived in several countries and I always search out a knitting and crochet group as soon as I arrive. It's a great way to meet creative women (and sometimes men). I went to the group meet up for the first time on Saturday and was hooked immediately because of the lovely woman I met.

Do you have a current project? Or what would you like to be knitting or crocheting right now?

I am making freeform samples for the new group starting in Nundah. All of my art and craft goodies are in a shipping container on the way from North Carolina to Brisbane. The packers also 'got' my knitting and crochet basket when my back was turned and put it in a carton. They wouldn't open the 100 + cartons so I could reclaim my precious basket - very unreasonable of them! I am looking forward to the Nundah meeting so I can share what I know and hopefully learn some new techniques.

Introduction

In New Zealand, I had my own studio, teaching a wide range of fibre art classes and hosting classes taught by other fibre artists. I have been playing with freeform knitting and crochet for over six years. Stephanie (Quattrini)
