Q: What is that awesome storage bin tower in the corner of your craft studio??
A: I store my works-in-progress (WIPS) in the Antonius system from IKEA. I have 3 sets of frames & bins stacked up in the corner of my craft studio. I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD STUFF ABOUT THIS SYSTEM! It’s Cheap. It takes 30 seconds to assemble. The bins come all the way out, so you can grab a bin and take it to another room to work on, and then put it back when you’re done. One frame plus the accompanying 4 bins totals just under $20, so my entire unit cost under $60, and I currently have over 30 WIPS stored in there. Links below to the frame and bins.
Q: What ball winder and swift do you use?
A: My ball winder is this one from knitpicks – I got it from Amazon, but I believe you can also order directly from the KnitPicks website.
My Swift is this one – also purchased from Amazon. It’s nothing fancy, and very inexpensive, but it does the trick.
Q: Am I allowed to sell things I make from your patterns in an upcoming craft show I am participating in?
A: YES! Of course! Anything you make using my patterns is yours to sell. If you’re selling online, I’d love credit to my design, or a link back to my site – but absolutely if you made it, sell it! Please DO NOT resell my written patterns or PDF’s as your own, or use my graphs/patterns in any other web or printed materials or patterns without my permission.
Q: Do you have a YouTube Channel?
A: At this time, I do not. But it’s possible I will start one in the very near future. Sign up for my email list to be the first to hear about it when I do! There’s a signup form on my home page.
Q: How do you get your color changes so clean on your C2C projects?
A: The only answer I have for this is PRACTICE. I tend to crochet with a very tight gauge in general, but if it’s not a project that needs to be a certain size (like a banner, for example) you might want to try crocheting with a smaller hook, or a bulkier yarn. Also, before you weave in your ends, give them a good tug and make sure they are nice and tight.
