Hi there, I’m Janice and I’m from Singapore where it’s summer all year round! You can find me on Instagram and Ravelry as jsmustopo.
What’s your dream knitting destination? Probably Amsterdam so I can visit Stephen & Penelope and buy all the yarn in person (I would need a huge yarn budget for the holiday)!
Do you have any knitting superpowers? I don't think I have any knitting superpowers, but for me knitting is a journey so I love learning new things along the way. This is why I am so drawn to Westknits designs as it is never a boring knit.
What is your favorite color? Knitting with pink yarn makes me the happiest.
Do you have a favorite Westknits design or one that you wear the most? The newest project usually becomes the current favorite, especially when it turns out exactly the way I pictured it in my head. However, I wear Penguono (it elevates any outfit), Fantastitch shawl (I used leftover yarn and I love how it all goes together) and Doodler shawl the most.
Do you make one project at a time or do you have several WIP's on your needles? I usually have a few projects going at the same time. Got to keep it interesting!
If you could describe your knitting style in three words, what would they be? Adventurous (I am game for anything new), methodical (I follow the steps because there is always a reason for Westknits madness), passionate (I get very excited when Westknits debuts a new design and it is also a perfect reason to do some yarn shopping).
Do you have a favorite knitting memory? My favorite moment has to be when I rediscovered knitting. I learned how to knit when I was 17 while waiting to move to Australia for college. It was an "old lady" hobby then and the yarn used to be scratchy. After I had my second son I was homebound and I needed something Zen as a "distraction". I stumbled upon Ravelry one night and I was amazed by how knitting has evolved. When I discovered Westknits I was hooked! I love how he takes simple knit and purl stitches and turns them into something so unique.
