L: How did you get into knitting?
B: I’ve been interested in all things fiber-related for as long as I can remember (the first thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a fashion designer), but I didn’t get into knitting until the fall of 2008. My good friend Jessica Ruvalcaba, who’s a master knitter herself, moved a block away from me, and one day I asked her to teach me how to knit. We spent many evenings hanging out and knitting at my apartment in Hollywood, and it wasn’t long before I realized how addictive knitting could be. I’ve had a love affair with the craft ever since.
