I’m Orsi, I’ve recently completed my PhD in linguistics and moved to Wellington, New Zealand from my beloved Galicia, the north-west corner of Spain, where I lived for the last seven years. Pretty much irrelevant for knitting and making, but I’m also a runner (feel free to check out whatrunnersdo.com for runventures).
Although I’ve known the basics of knitting and crocheting since I was young, I never ventured to make anything more complicated than a stockinette scarf with a few stripes in it, until a little over two years ago. As it happens to many, little by little I am learning about and getting more and more absorbed by the knowledge and talent found in the online knitting community.
I am in no way an artist or crafter, and I was also never particularly interested in fashion or design, although, naturally, I love nice things. I would define myself as a beginning maker, and what fascinates me is to learn to make different garments and objects, and try new techniques that allow to shape them or create different textures. It is all about the adventure of learning.
