Who's Shopping at the Studio?

Wendy

Each month, we want to introduce you to one of your awesome fellow Studio customers! This month, meet Wendy!

What kind of yarncrafter are you?
A knitter, crocheter, and spool knitter.

What is your current project?
I'm working on a skirt made in Microspun. However, this skirt may be commandeered by my niece, so I'm already planning others in several color combinations.

What's your favorite kind of project?
The kind of project that lets me sink myself into the pattern and put it on remote-control. Not just stockinette or garter, but lace as well, once I get the repeat down.

Share a fun fact about yourself.
I'm a confirmed chocoholic -- dark chocolate preferred!
