Monday Morning Musings

Gone are the literary days of Moby Dick by Herman Melville (752 pages) and The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (512 pages).  As a society, we have totally dumbed down the language and so cleverly figured out how to say almost EVERYTHING in 140 characters or less.  Recently found on twitter at http://twitter.com/VeryShortStory:

“You haven’t seen Mr. Potato Head in days?” “That’s right, detective” said his wife. “You want to explain the tater tots in the oven?” #vss      

So, I thought it might be fun to interview myself as it may take place on twitter.  (Eat your hearts out Katie, Diane and Babs; I scooped you with this twitterview.)

So, what’s your story @foxygknits?

Learned to knit in childhood. Long time – avocation not vocation. Stopped for a while & did needlepoint, but realized the error of my ways.

How did that lead to opening a shop on etsy?

Friends & family convinced me to open shop after getting tired of scarves, shawls & blankets for birthdays & every other occasion

Very interesting, @foxygknits.  From where do you get your inspiration?

Inspiration comes from colors and textures in everyday world.  Fave part of creative process – coord & blending yarn colors and textures

Your name sounds like you have street cred. How did you come up with it?

foxygknits came from joke when picking grandma name – Grandma Lo by day & Foxy G. by nite. When selecting name for shop, it was a natural.
