What are you currently working on?

Socks from the yarn we hand-died at Katha's! ("Socks are only physically small. By stitch count, they are immense.” ― Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much)

Do you crochet or knit?

Both

Describe your all-time favorite project.

Piglet hat for baby Halloween costume. Inventing the ears was fun!

How long have you been crocheting and/or knitting?

I learned to crochet first (11-12 years ago) and then to knit (9-10 years ago). I go through phases of rabidly consuming yarn followed by fairly long dry spells. With two little kids, these days I'm lucky if I touch yarn between Thursdays.

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

My grandmother was a masterful crocheter and as a child I was endlessly fascinated with a blanket we had of hers. My sister and mother-in-law both love to knit, and I spent many snowy winter days happily crafting with one or both of them.
