Meet Mary Beth!
We are truly blessed to have Mary Beth on our Serendipity Team. She is our Renaissance Woman. She knows how to do everything! She’s always willing to try new things and is an inspiration to us all.
Her knitting expertise makes her one of our most valued “knit doctors,” and her cheerful disposition is contagious.
I asked her a few questions this week, and she’s graciously answered here. See if you don’t love her even more after you read them. Make sure you say hello next time you see her in the shop!
What is the best thing about working at Serendipity?
“I like helping people with their problems and mistakes. I’ve made most of the possible errors, so I’ve seen even the worst of it before. I also love being able to commune with the yarn.”
Who taught you to knit/crochet/needlepoint?
“My mother taught me to knit when I was about 5 years old and gave me a ball of green yarn that I knit and unraveled probably a hundred times. My grandmother taught me to crochet. My mother-in-law showed me basketweave needlepoint stitch and I have done a ton of that, including a rug.”
What are you currently working on?
“I just finished a linen sweater in a very different construction. My next project will be either a sweater vest for my son-in-law or another sweater for my adorable new granddaughter. I do have a linen scarf on the needles, but it’s my project for the time I get stuck with a more complicated pattern.”
