What are you currently working on?

A Downton Abbey inspired vest in dark blue, red, and grey merino. It has a faire isle design on the front and open sides.

Do you crochet or knit?

Knit. I've tried crochet, but it doesn't appeal to me as much.

Describe your all-time favorite project.

Oh god, my favorite project was actually a huge flop. I tried to make a jackelope, and was doing alright until I knit one of the hind legs upside down, the neck too long, and the front legs awkwardly low and close together. It's still sitting under my desk mournfully, unfinished. It seems a bit futile to make antlers for it at this point.

How long have you been crocheting and/or knitting?

I can't remember the first time I knit. I remember shortly after though, I was somewhere between four and six years old. My mom was trying to get me to purl and I was not having it. So I'd say about ten years.

Do you have a special memory tied to yarn, crocheting or knitting?

No single memory, just a general feeling of contentment. I associate knitting with good people, good audio books, and Christmas. I also know I've hit a milestone in my relationships when I start knitting for them.


I always have a project on me: when watching a movie, hanging out with friends, attending a particularly boring lecture . . . Knitting is something the women in my family bond over, and I'd love to expand my knitting circle.
