Meet the Loops Troops Part 1: Loretta

We've added three new employees to our "Loops Troops" in the past month or so. It's always a big event to welcome newbies to our very tight-knit (or as Billie Anne would say "tight-hooked") group. These new additions are so wonderful, it's inspired me to introduce our amazing staff to you and let them tell you a bit about themselves. For the next 14 weeks, every Tuesday will be Troops Tuesday. This is also a chance for all you folks far and wide to get to know us a bit better, so someday when you come to Tulsa to visit us, you will be surrounded by familiar faces!

Meet Loretta, one of our newest Troops - and a real Trooper - she has already proved herself to be a super stocker and super socker, plus she is a font of internet information:

I posed the same 13 questions to all 14 employees. Here are Loretta's answers:

Q: What's currently on your needles?
A: Ingrid's 3-Way Wrap in the teal color. I just cast on a new pair of socks with Prism Saki yarn I bought at the trunk show. I also just finished a pair of socks with J Knits yarn and posted them on Ravelry.

Q: What's your middle name?
A: Marie

Q: What's your favorite all-time yarn?
A: Koigu

Q: How long have you been knitting, and who taught you?
A: 7 years knitting, 35 years (yikes!) crocheting. I'm mostly self-taught through books but I've got a sister who's a master knitter and many knitting friends who have answered lots of questions along the way.

Q: What's your favorite food & drink?
A: Can't really narrow down a favorite food, but my drink would be a raspberry vanilla cappuccino.

Q: Name three songs on your iPOD (or whatever).
A: "The Way You Do The Things You Do" by the Temptations, "Graceland" by Paul Simon, "Turn Your Love Around" by George Benson.

Q: What's your favorite hand-knit or crocheted item to wear?
A: My Hanne Falkenbery Lastrade sweater.

Q: How big is your stash?
A: My sweater project stash is quite manageable, but my sock yarn stash and my Koigu stash are a bit overwhelming.

Q: What's your favorite movie?
A: "The Philadelphia Story" with Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart.

Q: What makes you happiest?
A: A morning walk in springtime.

Q: What's your favorite color?
A: Teal

Q: Your biggest pet peeve is?
A: In knitting, it's when variegated yarns pool rather than blend nicely.

Q: Name three things most people don't know about you.
One, my beaded ornaments have been featured at the Philbrook Museum Festival of Trees, the M.A. Doran gallergy and Color Connection Gallery. Two, I've been needleworking in one way or another since my first stamped cross-stitch sampler in 7th grade - it's still hanging in the hallway. And three, I love to dance!
