JULIE CRAW­FORD

Knit Today Magazine - - Notebook -

Hello Julie! Who taught you to knit and when? My grand­mother when I was about seven. Like so many kids, I lost in­ter­est but picked it back up again in my twen­ties. I was in­spired by the beau­ti­ful knit­ting I saw Tur­key and I started learn­ing again.

De­scribe a typ­i­cal day in your life... Ev­ery day starts at 7am, when my three-year-old daugh­ter gets up! Then my hus­band and I rush around to make sure we leave in enough time for day­care and work. Af­ter work, I pick up my daugh­ter and we head to the park or home. Af­ter din­ner, story time and bed­time I usu­ally do the bulk of my knit­ting and blog­ging.

What’s

your

favourite

knit

project? Cowl. It’s my go-to ac­ces­sory in the and fall. The lace is like a neck­lace.

spring Why did you de­cide to start a blog? I started a knit­ting blog with a friend of mine but af­ter a couple of years, she was blog­ging and knit­ting less, and I was blog­ging and knit­ting more, so we parted ways and I re­named the blog Knit­ted Bliss. I’ve met so many won­der­ful knit­ters and crafters through blog­ging, and I al­ways love meet­ing other knit­ters. It’s those re­la­tion­ships and that sense of com­mu­nity that keeps me blog­ging.
