When did you first start knitting / crocheting and where did you learn?

I started crocheting in 2010 and knitting in 2013. I learned mostly from the Internet, since I don't have anyone nearby to teach me.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

I made a little bag out of t-shirt yarn and it was horrible. I gave it to my baby sister who was very happy with it at the time.

Who are your favourite pattern designers and celebrity knitters & crocheters?

I really like wink from 'acreativebeing'. She really makes awesome stuff. But I think I'm a little bias, because she is also my sister-in-law, so I know she is a wonderful person in real life as well :)

What are your favourite things to stitch and do you have a favorite item you've made?

Lately I'm really into knitting socks. They are quick and really soft on your feet. I don't really have a favorite item yet, but I think all the handbags I made so far, I really loved. So the answer would be: "All my handbags" :D

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to stitch along to?

Mostly it's the radio. We have a channel called 'arrow classic rock' which plays all the music I like. It feels like a 'Christina's favorite hits' channel, so I listen to that a lot!

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

Well of course I really love knitting and crocheting. I also take part in a tailoring course, so I love to sew as well. I also read and sometimes play a little guitar hero or rock band if I want to get my 'rock' on ;)
