...getting to know all about you

Admit it, you started singing it in your head! :D haha!

So, Clare and I were thinking the other day how nice it is that Knit In A Box has become a bit of a community, we love reading your funny comments, seeing photos of your amazing handy work and how you all help each other out when needed. So, in an effort to be able to get to know each other better, we thought we’d introduce some of you.

Say Hello to Carol....

Not sure of my exact age, but I was a child and my granddad taught me
as he was the only one with enough patience due to me being left handed.

Do you have a favourite knitting designer / book?
I don’t have a favourite but do like doing KTG designer patterns and
King Cole

The most unusual thing was being asked to knit a coat for a puppy to
keep it warm

What’s your favourite TV programme or film?
My favourite program at the moment is Lethal Weapon, and favourite film has to be Titanic

What would be your best knitting tip?
My best tip would be once you start a project finish it before you start something else, otherwise it tends to get forgotten

Who in the world would you most like to knit for?
My favourite people - my Great Nieces & Nephews.

The Great Nieces & Nephews - Emily Kyle William & Aimee.

Where’s the most random place you’ve knitted?
The most random place would be at work, always have wool & needles handy for lunchtime!
