When did you first start knitting / crocheting and where did you learn?
When I was 10, my mother taught me to crochet. My first project was to single crochet a perfect square. This was to teach me about keeping the stitches even and the same in every row, so that I would be able to tell if I dropped a stitch or added too many. Once I had gotten the hang of that stitch she taught me the double and treble crochet stitches.
Can you remember the first thing you made?
My first real project was a blanket for my dolly. All I can remember about it, is that I used red heart yarn and that it was red.
Who are your favourite pattern designers and celebrity knitters & crocheters?
I have so many, but my top favourites are Kim Guzman, Dedri Uys, Carol Ventura, Sharon Ojala and Tamara Kelly.
What are your favourite things to stitch and do you have a favorite item you've made?
I love crocheting barbie clothes and accessories! I also enjoy crocheting softies and people accessories too.
My most favourite crochet project was when I designed the crochet chess set for my father several years ago.
Here's a link to the project if you need it: http://www.rebeckahstreasures.com/blog/crochet-chess-set
What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to stitch along to?
I prefer watching TV shows while I crochet, but on occasion I will listen to music.
I enjoy crime, fairytale and medical dramas the most.
As for music, I enjoy R&B and soul music.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
I also enjoy making jewelry, quilting and baking.
I started to learn to knit and I really liked it. I would also like to try spinning and weaving. Hopefully someday I'll get some more time to get into all of these.
