What is your hand size? Women’s Small
Circumference around palm- 7", 18 cm
length from inside of thumb to longest finger tip- 4.5", 11.5 cm
length of entire hand from base of palm to longest finger tip- 6.5", 17 cm
circumference at wrist- 5.5", 14 cm

What are your favorite colors? I LOVE color, all of my coats are quite muted (read black and brown), so my mittens get to be fun, right?

Any motifs you particularly love? I do love pictorial details… and wee animals : )

Hobbies, passions and activities other than knitting and crafty things? I bike, hike and x/c ski with my dog and family, (the activity depends on the season), cook and drink good wine, and LOVE to go listen to live music!

What crafts do you do? Knit, crochet, sew, weave (though not lately!), bead, and I’m going to learn how to rug hook this year if it’s the last thing I do.

Any foods you had or can’t eat (allergies, etc.)? Nope… I just don’t like bananas!

Favorite yarn(s)? This is too hard to answer…

Are you allergic to any fibers? (wool, alpaca, mohair, etc?) No, but am sensitive to "itchy" wools, particularly at my wrists.

What do you do in life? I am a full time knitwear designer, a quarter of my time is spent as the design director for Schaefer Yarn, the rest of the time is spent on my own designs and driving, feeding, exercising, and playing with my family!

Other favorites — books, movies, tv, candy, music, etc. LOVE listening to audiobooks, watching entire seasons of choice tv series on Netflix, back to back and going to the movies. My dirty little secret is that I love "trashy" books, like the Outlander series, and even Maeve Binchy in a pinch… sometimes a girl just needs to escape, right? I also love treats that are salty and sweet at the same time (read sea salt caramels, choc covered pretzels etc…)

I had to draw today. Being afraid of the outside world is getting me down. How come allergy season is lasting so long?? Wrap it up, folks, please. Anyway I braved it, itchy eyes and runny nose, and did pretty well sketching this frat house. I had to do the colour later on though, because just to annoy me, a pair of leafblowers came along to blow all the leaves about and make things worse. I abandonded ship, but I had done enough and I might even go back and do another, to match it.
