We know you're out there.
Yes you. You paint. You draw. You knit. You crochet. You cast jewellery and blow glass. You decorate fantastic cakes and build majestic gazebos. How do we know? We see the books that are brought back by the dozens (somebody has to put them back on the shelf!), so we know you're feeding your creative urges and we just don't always get to see the final products.
So, when we can catch one of you this is what happens:
What are you reading right now?
From Eroica with Love and The encyclopedia of crochet techniques.
How long have you been crocheting?
Oh, about seven years. My momma taught me.
What's the cutest thing you've ever crocheted?
A really cute little amigurumi alarm clock from Crochet Today! magazine.
Yep. It was part of a ski-toque. Oh I've also crocheted really hairy caterpillars from 75 birds, butterflies & little beasties to knit and crochet and I needed the encyclopedia of crochet techniques to figure out which stitch would make the best beard.
What's your next project?
Leg warmers, or spats... I'm not sure yet.
Why do you like to crochet?
I like to do something when I'm travelling (bus or car.) It's a portable medium and there's a large variety of things you can create with it. Every time I crochet something I strive to make it not look like it's from the 70's (laughs)
Do you listen to music while you work?
I really like Jill Barber, Michael Buble, Michael Kaeshammer and DAFT Punk.
Come to the library and check out the music Leah's into:
