Hello Eat.Sleep.Knitters! It’s time once again for your favorite blog series: Meet the Staff! It’s pretty close to wrapping up so we’ll have to devise another delightful series soon! Pressure!
Today we introduce the mysterious Lindsay, Queen of Shipping, who ships packages so fast you wonder if she’s superhuman (even after all these years, we’re still not sure)! 🙂 Alas, Lindsay isn’t a knitter, so we changed up our interview questions a little:
Has working in a yarn store gotten you interested in learning to knit or crochet?
Yes. I did try it out for a little bit to see what all the fuss was about. I heard that it’s very relaxing, but I’m just too impatient and too much of a perfectionist for it.
What has been the most surprising part of working in a yarn store being a non-knitter?
The variety of projects. Y’all don’t just make scarves (as many non-knitters believe). There are patterns out there for shoes, skirts, pet costumes, lampshades, you name it. It’s absurd!
What’s your favorite type of project?
Fair isle sweaters. They just look so sweet and cozy. (Like Umbrellas, Grettir, or Chickadee)
What’s your favorite part about the job?
Imagining the beautiful projects people are making from their orders.
What’s your favorite shipping box?
How could I possibly choose?
What’s your favorite color?
Purples: plum, violet, lavender, orchid, magenta….
What’s your favorite yarn that we carry?
SweetGeorgia yarns – the colors are so bright and cheerful!
What’s your favorite season?
Spring. Some people argue that autumn is the most beautiful in GA, but I believe it’s spring. I love all the flowering trees and the smell of fresh-cut grass.
What’s your favorite sports team?
Atlanta Braves. My husband and I try to go to opening weekend every year. I can Tomahawk Chop like a pro! I can’t wait for the new season to start – another reason to love spring.
What’s your favorite movie, TV show or music?
For movies – I love anything from my childhood. Movies from the 80’s and 90’s. When it comes to the radio, I prefer to listen to talk/news radio. I feel like I’ve heard every song a few too many times.
Since you don’t knit, what’s your favorite hobby or past time?
I like puzzles and I read a lot. My husband and I really like hiking. We also have 3 tiny dogs that take up a lot of our time.
Where is your favorite vacation destination?
Jekyll Island, GA. My husband and I just eloped there in August. It was beautiful. We’ll be going back for years.
Also: In cast you haven’t heard – we’re going to have our inaugural Eat.Sleep.Knit Night this Friday evening 5-7pm!! If you’re in the area, please join us! If you aren’t, join us in spirit! We’ve got some wonderfully comfy couches and a need to socialize while working on our projects! 🙂 We’ll have water, tea, coffee and some kind of snacky-snack to share.
We’ll be running the Knit Night each Friday in February and if interest is high (as in enough folks join in the fun) we’ll keep it going! So be sure to stop in, we’d love to see you!!
Seriously. I couldn’t believe how fast I got my yarn. Superhuman for sure.
