Martina knits because she loves to create! And she loves having yarn in her hands. Knitting has been her constant companion since elementary school; she knit in college when she was supposed to study econometrics, and she knit in her free time during her years as a journalist. Martina designs patterns such that not only the finished object, but also the project itself, is fun and pleasant—easy, mindless projects with very few purl stitches. In real life, she is a mom of two and lives in a little village in the very north of Germany.
