One of the things I love most about the Indie GAL (Gift-A-Long) is the chance to discover and/or promote other designers’ work. Over the course of the GAL I’ll be publishing gift-knitting related interviews with designers whose work I admire.

Steph: Have you participated as a designer before this year? 

Sara: Yes, this is my 4th year! I love the camaraderie that you can find in the GAL. Everyone is always so excited and ready to share the love to support indie designers. I also love seeing all the FOs and discovering new amazing designs.

Are you participating as a knitter? if yes, what are you planning on knitting?

I’m going to try! I’m unfortunately quite busy this year but I hope to have some time later in the month. I’m thinking of trying my hand at some brioche in one of Leslie Anne Robinson’s beautiful designs, like Whisp.

I’m really busy too! I may knit some slippers as gifts, if I have the time.

Which of your patterns do you think make the best gifts?

If you happen to know someone who loves birds, you can’t go wrong with my birdy patterns like Charadrii and Charadriiformes, as well as Bramble Birds and Owl in the Thicket Hat.

Oh, I love those! I also love the science geek names.
