At the time, she was working on samples for her Master's Thesis, "Similarity of a Square-Ruled Graph and a Tapestry Crochet Motif Made with a Single Crochet Stitch. Maarit graduated in 2004 and meeting her at the 2005 Crochet Days was quite a thrill! Maarit was both an instructor and one of my students there.

Maarit's new job as an elementary school English teacher, and her 3 children and husband keep her quite busy. The Nordic Knitting Symposium she attended over the summer inspired her to try more new things. She says, "I feel like trying out ALL new techniques, yarns, colours etc. I do wish to live to be a hundred years old so I'll have the time for all these lovely ideas." Maarit's Woolen Mittens Maarit will give these knit mittens to a Member of Parliament in November. Maarit is such a talented tapestry crochet artist.
