For the knitting/crocheting ask: 3, 7, 8, and 20

3.            What was
the first project you completed?

That may be lost to the mists of time, because I learned to
knit (mostly from books, but I had to have my aunt, who learned knitting as an
exchange student to Norway!, show me how to cast on before I could make sense
of the rest of the book) at around ten years old and I probably made coasters
or doll clothes or something at that point, I have no memory of it. The first
completed project I remember is a super long red scarf…plain
stockinette…that I knitted in college. It got away from me and ended up so
long I doubled it on itself, crochet-seamed the sides to make a tube, and then
crocheted a fancy edging. (I learned crochet before knitting so that was my
go-to for edgings at that point…) I wore it with my winter coat for a few years
and passed it on to my Mom when I got rid of that coat and the red scarf no
longer matched. Mom still wears it! Mom is the best of knit gift recipients.
(She also gets most of the socks that I didn’t knit for my own use…)

7.            What
aspect of your craft is the most challenging to you?

SPLITTY YARN. OK, maybe that’s just the most frustrating.
The challenge that I ENJOY in knitting is the design process – taking the
stitches and techniques I’ve learned and figuring out how to put them together
to look the way I want a project to look. (I was so excited when my hunch that
a mitered square would work for Fenris’ distinctive breastplate worked out
perfectly on the first try! Most of those doll clothes took a lot more tries
than that, so yeah, design is challenging. But fun.)

8.            Which of
your past projects are you the most proud of?

Ooooh, my first impulse is to say the Fenris dolls! But I’ve
designed some other things I’m really proud of – most of all probably this cardigan for
my Mom
, because I was able to sit down with her and discuss the kind of
design elements she prefers, e.g. the ¾-length sleeves, and beads, and HOT PINK
(my mother and hot pink…that’s a story for another day), and then I read up
on top-down raglan sweater design and somehow made the whole thing work. It
took me over a year – totally worth it. Also, Mom wears it regularly still, so
I’m extra proud of it.

20. How big is your yarn stash?

I am able to answer this only because its size became very…concrete
to me in the process of moving last summer. At that time it took 5 big
tupperware storage bins to contain it all. Since then I’ve bought more – mostly
for developing the designs for the Fenris/Hawke/Metis dolls, so there’s a box
full of a LOT of colors of Wool of the Andes to try out for costumes, skin
colors, hair colors, etc. But I’ve also managed to use up quite a few of the
stashed sock yarns, so…progress?

Thanks for asking! 🙂
