Our “Meet Our Designer” series will give our customers a chance to get to know the Designer behind the product. Today, we introduce you to Brittany. Brittany makes leg warmers, earmuff bands, and headbands.
1) How long have you been crocheting and what made you start learning?
I have been crocheting since I was very young. I was home-schooled and my mom would sit and crochet while teaching us. She taught me some basic crochet techniques and I wasted a lot of time and yarn making half finished scarfs and baby blankets. I started crocheting a lot more after my sister taught me Tunisian crochet while I was in college. Tunisian crochet goes much faster, which means I could actually finish projects before losing interest. 🙂
2) When you aren’t crocheting, what would we find you doing?
I spend most of my time taking care of my two sweet children. I love being a stay-at-home mommy. I am also a doula. I enjoy every opportunity I get to help a woman through the transition into being a mama.
3) Do you have a favorite type of yarn you like to use? Or a color you seem especially drawn to?
I don’t have a favorite brand of yarn. I pick out my yarns by touch mostly. I love smooth, and soft yarns. I am definitely drawn to teals and greens.
4) What is your favorite hobby?
What is my favorite hobby? This is a hard one to answer. When I lived in Georgia I loved hiking. Now that I live in Fargo, there aren’t really places to go hiking. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends and going on walks when the weather is nice. Taking care of my kiddos doesn’t leave me with much time to pursue many hobbies.
