Loops Troops: Meet Paula!

I missed "Loops Troops Tuesday" because I was having fun with the giveaway...so here it is, a bit belated. If you haven't been to Loops on a Monday night, you probably haven't met Paula. Paula has a noble non-profit "day job" and works at Loops one night a week to feed her yarn obsession. She is always knitting something hip, and just finished up this quick project in Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Infusion Mohair. Mohair is back this fall in a BIG way. This particular pattern from Jo Sharp's "Contemporary Knitting" is quick and super-easy to make. It is basically a ribbed scarf that you seam together at the end to make a shoulder-warmer. (And if you're afraid of seams, this is a good place to start, because the fuzzy mohair hides the seam!) Paula loved knitting it so much she's making another one in solid charcoal gray.

Here are Paula's answers to our 12 questions. So far, I think she is the big winner in the Things We Didn't Know About Her category. Her answer shocked and intrigued us all!
1. What's your middle name? Lee
2. What's your favorite all-time yarn? koigu
3. How long have you been knitting, and who taught you? I've been knitting for 3 years - I learned from the internet and then Ingrid, Sherry, Dawn and Gina.
4. What's your favorite food & drink? FOOD - Ethiopian, no, really! The best is in Washington D.C., but a new Ethiopian restaurant opened OKC last year - you must go there. DRINK - lavender lemonade
5. Name three songs on your iPOD (or whatever). Tulsa - Rufus Wainwright, Summer's Gone - Aberfeldy and anything by Nina Simone
6. What's your favorite hand-knit or crochet item to wear? my black or red merino leg warmers
7. How big is your stash? I don't know, I put most of it the closet and under the guest bed so that I can pretend that it is much smaller than it is. This also keeps my marriage together as my husband thinks my stash is what I have in my knitting bag at the time.
8. What's your favorite movie? 8 1/2 and Godfather II
9. What makes you happiest? Knitting, uninterrupted
10. What's your favorite color? Green
11. Your biggest pet peeve is? Dirty dishes
12. Name three things about you most people don't know. I got my bachelor's degree in History. I have several strange phobias - one of which involves ventriloquist dolls - very creepy! I use to be a road manager and bus driver for a rock band.

For more details, you'll have to worm them out of Paula on a Monday night. Remember, Loops is open every weeknight until 8. There is always a fun crowd so come in and stitch...
