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.
