Better Know A Crafter: Nick Hawthorne

Nick knitted his very first sweater! We are amazed because he took on this project from a calculate-it-yourself pattern in a book he found in the library, Knitting in the Old Way. Nice work, Nick!

What kinds of crafts do you do?
I blow glass, knit, draw, do needlepoint, torchwork and metalwork--just need stuff to do.

Tell us about the sweater you made.
This is my first sweater. I knitted it. I read a book, made a swatch and tried. I knitted it on a 10.5 needle and used Cascade Baby Alpaca yarn.

How did you learn to knit?
A lady friend taught me one summer.

What is your favorite animal?
A hippo or a Yeti.

Thanks Nick! Yetis are awesome. Happy crafting!
