Name: Susan R.
Ravelry Username: Needles21
My hero is: Elizabeth Travis Johnson - She was the Elizabeth Zimmerman of sewing, especially childrens clothes...
Knit, Crochet, or Both: Knit mostly
Who taught you to knit/crochet?: My grandmother after I begged her when I found a ball of red yarn in her attic.
Other crafts do you do: Sew, smocking, French Handsewing by machine, quilting, and the list goes on... Anything I can get my hands on. I used to teach smocking at a store on Hope Street many years ago. I believe it may have been diagonally across the street from Fresh Purls.
Favorite Yarn: My favorite was Dream in Color Classy in the color November Muse - the color was beautiful and I took the shopkeeper's advice in NOT having to switch between balls while knitting and the color traveled beautifully without variation.
Favorite Color: Blue, Blue, Blue - all blues
Favorite Completed Project: Most recently was the Whale Watch hat! It is the second project that I have done out of the New England Knits book and both have been great!
Best TV show for knitting: I love Criminal Minds, especially when they have a double episode night!
When you’re not knitting you are: Cooking
How did you discover Fresh Purls?: I was driving by and my Yarn Radar was on!!!
