What I Do, Job-wise: I make yarn! I also teach yoga and meditation, design knitwear, and occasionally photograph things. It's mostly yarn, though. I like to make things.

What I Do, Fun-wise:  I like to knit, watch The Twilight Zone, drink whiskey, read comic books, get over- invested in hypothetical arguments about comic books, and otherwise embarrass myself in public. I also play the banjo very, very badly. You have no idea. 

My Motto: "Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." (This explains a lot about my banjo playing.)

My Anti-Motto: Any line that begins, "A lady should always…"

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Darryl Hannah, which is really weird, because I am not normally into blondes. 

My “celebs to make out with” list: Ani DiFranco, Paul Giamatti, Queen Latifah, Ira Glass, David Tennant, Helen Mirren, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tilda Swinton, Ian McShane. 

The Most Played Song On My iTunes: "Plea From A Cat Named Virtue," The Weakerthans. 

Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Musicophilia, by Oliver Sacks. 

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Black yoga pants and an Anthropologie cardigan. 

Beauty Products That I Hoard: Blinc mascara, Sweet Libertine eyeshadow, Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding.

I smell like: Wool, nutmeg, and ADVENTURE. 

I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No): Yes, but I haven't slept with anyone that awful in ages. I no longer believe in encouraging bad habits in others. (This is a lie. I no longer believe in encouraging bad habits in others that result in lousy sex for me. I will encourage many other bad habits.)
