I was interviewed by crochet designer Darleen Hopkins =)

Darleen Hopkins is a fellow crochet designer participating in #giftalong2015. She asked me to do an interview for her blog. She’s also going to be crocheting Melo for the GAL!

–Here is part of the interview:

How long have you been designing and what led you to design?

I officially got started after being invited to a fiber festival in my province (festivaltwist.org). I was going there mostly to sell finished crochet items, but had 3 patterns written and brought them on a whim.

So many people bought them, and asked for more, that a knitting friend and I vowed to design 1 new pattern every month until the next event. And we did.

Turns out this is a good thing, because I don’t like making the same thing twice, which is a prerequisite of selling finished items!

Read the whole thing here! Thank you Darleen!
