Jo & Mica

 


Jo
(Jose on Ravelry) grew up in the frozen North of Scotland, and as a result has an almost constant need to be warm. She started knitting in primary school, under the beady eye of Mrs Campbell, and all her first efforts were boobtubes and mini skirts for her dolls. (Thankfully, fashion has moved on a little.) She took up knitting again when her wee son needed a big hat, and discovered knitting blogs, then Ravelry, then real live people in yarn shops and at a local group. As well as event managing, she is also a technical editor for accessory patterns, and she enjoys designing patterns – infrequently - and starting sweaters - frequently! 


Mica
aka lillebrit on Ravelry, picked up her needles relatively late in life and only really got into knitting since moving to Scotland in the year 2000. Having grown up in a crafty family in the north of Germany, she was more of a tom-boy than a needlecraft enthusiast when growing up. Mica used to hand-dye the now extinct Yarnpony yarns until event management took over her life. Never turning down an opportunity to try a new craft or meet new people with similar interest, Mica can either be found knee-deep in one of her numerous stashes (fabric or yarn!) or hanging out with her pals talking about the latest knitting patterns.
