Hi Meg! Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! I am a full time grad student as of this year for 3D animation. I live in md with my Husband and our Pointer puppy, Gypsy.
When did you start crafting and how?
I started in 2011 officially- as a way to process my Grandfather’s death. Morbid maybe, but it kept my hands busy and my brain learning. I started with Knitting and within a year also picked up crochet.
And how did you start designing?
I started designing in 2018 or so with colorwork hats and the Sea Glass Racerback top! It was my first pattern and I felt I had jumped into the deep end of crafting!
Which of your designs are you most proud of?
Aw there’s so many! But I would say being published in the Star Wars Knitting Book felt like a huge deal. For unofficial patterns- the Unicorn Sweater really stole my heart!
Here’s another difficult question - do you have a favorite craft type?
My favorite craft would be knitting. I also love crochet toys, and I occasionally spin and draw.
What is your usual process of designing?
I start with the charts. I’ll spend a few hours getting the pictures how I want them then try knitting it up. I find I’m moving dots around as I go if I don’t like something so my sample almost never matches the final pattern exactly.
What inspires you to create & design?
Movies, mostly. Things like Disney have fueled several patterns. season’s also work. I have the pumpkin patch for just that reason!
With that in mind - any favorite book or movie you would like to recommend?
Such a tough choice! I love Sherlock Holmes stories.
What’s the most recent project you’ve worked on?
I’m currently designing a Moana sweater and a RBG peplum top that gave been eating up several days of time!
What was the longest project you worked on?
Oh gosh- I guess my cozy memories blanket. That was started in 2016 and I’m still adding squares here and there.
And the shortest one? (excluding frogging!)
Haha yes… I think a woolease thick & quick beanie this winter was pretty fast! Oh and the bluebirds of happiness. They’re so small. I love making them as baby gifts or ornaments.
What is your favorite feature on Ribblr?
I absolutely love the quick change from in/cm. I always have a hard time with that.
Pay it forward - your shoutout to a fellow Ribblr.
