An Interview on Seven Days


I was recently honored to be interviewed by Seven Days – a well-respected Vermont newspaper. Check out the interview snippet and head to the full interview for more!

SEVEN DAYS: Is this the life you imagined for yourself?
CHERYL POTTER: Absolutely not. I grew up in a mill town in Maine where everyone in my family did a craft of some kind, but I thought I left it all behind when I was accepted to Middlebury College. Imagine my surprise when I got there and everyone was knitting! I took a part-time job at the local yarn shop and proceeded to knit my way through college and graduate school.

SD: Was the skill of knitting passed down in your family?
CP: Both of my grandmothers knit, as did my mother, who taught me when I was quite young. Excess knitting needles were commonplace in our house, as were napkins and toilet tissue, as she worked at a paper mill. Determined to knit, I got out a box of Kleenex, took two needles, tore the tissue up and attempted to knit it back together. When my mother saw the mess I had made, she got out some yarn and helped me cast on. I was 5.
