Craft along with Krista from Eat, Knit & DIY

What are your hobbies?

I'm a voracious baker. I have a group of friends I try to give all my baked goods to as soon as it comes out of the oven. We could never eat it all at my house.

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

Mostly I make home decor crafts. At night, I knit/crochet to relax.

What do you craft along to?

If I'm sewing or doing a craft project, I listen to internet radio LOUD (FUV and Morning Becomes Eclectic/KCRW are two favorite stations) or sometimes I'll listen to a TED talk. But if I'm working on a knit/crochet project I tend to bingewatch tv shows on Netflix.

What was the first project you ever made?

When I was 6, I made a doll from one of my mom's ripped pairs of pantyhose. It had button eyes and yarn hair. It looked like something Tim Burton would create, but I gave it to my grandmother and she kept it on top of her dresser the rest of her life.

What are your favorite items to make?

I like to make either things that are incredibly unique; or else a DIY cheap version of something that would be expensive to buy.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Oh So Lovely, Lia Griffith, I like Underbara Clara even though I can't read it (It's in Swedish).
