What is your favorite material to upcycle?Right now, plastic grocery bags! lol. I turn them into strips and knit them into grocery bag holders. I thought the idea is funny. Turning grocery bags into a grocery bag holder. lol.
What is your favorite item in your shop?
My Teemo hat is my favorite. I actually made that hat for me. It is inspired by an online game (League of Legends) I play with my finance and brother. I love it so much that I thought other people who play that game might like it too. Turns out, they do! :)
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My fiance and brother. They are excited that I can make cool things with yarn and they are always telling me to try to make this or that. Or if I can make something for them and it turns out so awesome that I have to make another one to share.
And of course, League of legends. I am so in love with certain characters that when I am not playing them, I am dreaming about how to make the characters so I can have them with me all the time. I am a geek/dork, I know. lol.
What are your future plans for your shop?
Well, right now I'm thinking about the holidays and holiday shopping. I'm working on more winter/fall items. I make awesome fingerless gloves/mittens and other super warm hats that are not based on characters. Hopefully by Sept, I will have a full line of winter accessories available.
