11 Questions from the Veiled Purl

  1. Who/what inspired you to crochet/knit/sew or do any of the other crafty things you do? I have always been crafty and I have tried all kinds of mediums from painting to drawing and knitting and even cross-stitching and though I loved it all I never excelled in anything. But when I picked up my crochet hook for the first time it was like love at first stitch, lol. I found that for the first time I was really good at something without having to force it.
  2. How old were you when you first learn to do any of the above? I was drawing and painting at an early age and cross-stitching for much of my late teens and early 20s. I only have been crocheting for the past couple of years but it feels like I’ve been doing it forever. I just love it.
  3. What are your hobbies besides the above mentioned? Hiking or walks in the forest when the weather is nice. Other than that it really is crochet 24/7.
  4. What’s your favorite season and why? I love autumn with the change in colors. And though I live now in Quebec, I grew up in Georgia and after a scorching summer, autumn was always a welcomed change.
  5. Tall or short? Short like my mother. My children do not take after me lol. They are going to tower over me.
  6. Sunrise or sunset? Once upon a time I would have said sunset. Now that I have children I can appreciate sunrises more.
  7. What is your favorite flower? Not sure if you would call it a flower, but I love cherry blossoms
  8. What’s a pattern that you really want to do, but can’t find the time? I want to make a dress for my daughter.
  9. Knitting, sewing, or crochet? Crochet
  10. What’s a place you really want to visit, and why? Germany. I have German heritage and would love to see where my great great great…great grandparents came from.
