Meet the Designer: Jill of Knit Sisu

This week we are featuring Jill's newest design, the Olive & Oak Sweater made in our luscious Coleman Yarn, so we thought you might want to get to know Jill a little better!

My hometown is…. I've moved every 2-5 years of my life so there isn't one hometown! But I was born in Denver, CO and spent a lot of time in Irvine, CA.

I currently live in… Washington DC

My professional background/degree is in… English Lit with a Masters in Teaching

My preferred craft isand I have been doing it for (how long)... Knitting! For about 10 years.

Fiber crafts I would like to try are… Macrame, yarn dyeing

Non yarn related hobbies are… Yoga, cooking, hiking, and reading

My favorite movie is…. Clueless. But my husband won't watch it with me because I recite all the lines.

My favorite QCY color is…. the new autumn-y Coleman Maple color!

A food I think is super gross is… haha not much - I'll eat just about anything!

I have an unpopular opinion about…. Cats. Yikes.

My current Work In Progress is… I always have way too many projects going at once. Right now I'm designing a cardigan, a shawl, a couple cowls, and a few socks.

Do you have a pet? Yes! Sig - a longhaired Dachshund mix with LOTS of attitude.

Favorite chip or ice cream flavor? Chip - truffle potato chips. Ice Cream - really good vanilla

Coffee or tea? Both... coffee in the morning, green tea in the afternoon, ginger tea before bed.

Mountains or Beach? Most often the mountains, but the beach if it's cold, gray and blustery.

What are you reading and/or watching right now? Watching - the 5 Days at Memorial series (not exactly a feel-good watch, but amazing that it's a true story). Reading - Half Baked Harvest Every Day by Tieghan Gerard... I often read cookbooks like novels, cover to cover.

If you had a superpower what would it be? To instantaneously make people feel comfort, happiness and joy. And also be able to knit really, REALLY fast. 😆
