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

I started knitting January 2013 as per my then boyfriend (now husband) recommendation. My best friend is an avid crocheter and she taught me the very basics. I quickly became hooked! I have learned most of what I know from blogs and youtube.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

Yes! a knit hat from a lovely pattern I found online. It's been a hit!

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

Vickie Howell and Rohn Strong are a couple of examples. Although I get lots of inspiration from many bloggers.

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

I love love love making hats. My favorite is a shark hat I made for my friend, with a gray body and pink fins! he loves it

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

I love crocheting to the Daily Show and Colbert Report. I turn my Pandora station on and listen to whatever I'm in the mood for. Usually chill music.

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

I love cooking and baking. I make cute labels to give my baked goods away. I enjoy making large amounts of food to feed crowds of family and friends.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Thanks for having me! I am honored to have been chosen as a superstar. I love the page and it serves as a great source of inspiration when I'm looking for ideas. thank you!
