Author of the Month: Leonie Morgan of 100 Colorful Ripple Stitches to Crochet

Leonie Morgan HeadshotThis month we sit down for a Q&A with crochet and knitting expert Leonie Morgan, author of 100 Colorful Ripple Stitches to Crochet. Inspired at an early age by her mother’s granny blanket, Leonie taught herself how to knit and crochet from various books and hand-me-down knowledge.

Find her blogging at WoolnHook and check out her beautiful and inspiring Pinterest page. She lives in Wales with a wool-tolerant partner and three wool-loving cats.

1. What’s your craft? I crochet and knit – all the time.

2. What project would you consider an all-time best? My Book Blanket is my all-time-best. I used all the squares designed for my first book and joined them together. It’s really warm, cosy and full of color.

3. What project would you consider an all-time worst? One of the first crochet things I made was a cropped cardigan. I missed some of the stitches out and didn’t block. I knew it wasn’t going to turn out grand but carried on regardless and wore it around the house feeling smug. As the day wore on, the arms got longer, and longer, and longer. It went in the unravel pile that evening.

4. What tool or material could you not live without? Wool. If there was a wool drought I’d have to unravel sweaters.

5. What’s your hidden talent? Super hearing.

  1. When it comes to attributes for the supper inside a bistro you should look at the steamed, cooked, boiled, or even uncooked choices that are available. Steamed fruit and vegetables less complicated more healthy as compared to fried variants. Numerous eating places will give you the possibility to secure a salad whenever they don’t have any selections for greens that aren’t deep-fried or even boating within butter.
