Name: Gretchen Powers

Hometown/Age: Midd, VT / Steamboat, CO / Currently Residing in Portland, ME

Years Knitting: 15

Who taught you how to knit?: My Ma

Best thing you've ever knit: That would be a tossup between a Fair Isle hat on size 4 needles a few years ago and the Christmas stockings I knit last year. Both projects were a challenge for me at the time and I was very proud of myself when I finished them.

One word to describe you: Bold

Where is the strangest place you have knit?: The rooftop of a Buddhist Monastery in a tiny village in Nepal.

Favorite show to watch while knitting: Grey's Anatomy or State of Affairs

A responsibility you put off to knit (and was it worth it?): I knit my way through every class in college.  It kept me awake after crew practice, so I would say it was definitely worth it.
