My father still jokes about how when I was little, the first thing I’d do with a new doll was rip off all of its clothes so I could tape on new ones made lovingly out of tissue paper and decorated with stickers and glitter. I’m still that little girl at heart, stickers, glitter . . I generally don’t rip off people’s clothes, however, unless they want me to. My job as manager at In Sheep’s Clothing, my local yarn shop, provides me with ample exposure to beautiful yarn and creative people and serves as a constant source of inspiration.
