I have my own Group now! Check out Artesanitarium

I knit and crochet. Occasionally some other crafting. I’m very visual, and I like to keep things simple. I love every thing beautiful.
I don’t like to follow the mainstream, I go my own ways. That’s probably why I wanted to be a designer in the first place.
I’m terrible at following patterns. I always make alterations.

I’m a fan of heavy weight yarn, if I use light weight the needles has to be big. I’m impatient and want fast results.
3.5 mm needles is the minimum so is sport weight :)

I designed my first gloves at age 5 and socks at age 11. The gloves are long gone, but I still have and use the socks. Course I didn’t knit them my self, my dearest grandma did.
I entered a mittens-design competition fall 2009 with my design “Heavy-mittens”, it didn’t win, but it got honorary mentioned, and my granny was so proud of me.
