Welcome and thank you for allowing me to asking you a few questions:
Tell us a little about yourself?
Hi sweetie, thanks for this interview, so cool – makes me feel like I’m a celeb! My name is Carlos, Carlos Santos, and I’m Brazilian, but now live here in the wonderful UK. From the moment I arrived in London, I knew it was the place for me. I am a hair stylist, I work with lots of A-listers, VIPs and Stars. I have a great life here. Nothing beats the feel of a tight new pair of designer trousers and perfectly tailored jacket as I glide along the red-carpet, rubbing shoulders with the hot young Stars and waving at the paparazzi — I just love it!
What Star Sign are you?
I’m a Taurus – the Bull, but I have to say don’t think that’s me at all, although the ladies might disagree (laughing).
What is your favourite food?
I’m easy to please, but I do have to watch what I eat and workout to keep this super-hot beach body (laughter) – no love-handles here!
Have you always been interested in Knitting?
I learnt to knit as a boy when I spent time with my grandmother, she also taught me to cook. I met Luna at a retreat and she invited me to join the group. That’s when I got into it again – well sort of, I think I talk more than knitting.
What project are you working on right now?
I have a sweater I started a few years ago – and I’m still working on it. It is slow progress, but the ladies help me out.
Why ‘naked’ knitting?
When Luna invited me to join the group I didn’t think about it being ‘naked’, and I’ve never had an issue getting undressed with the others, and they don’t have any problem with me – after all they are not my type – know what I mean? (wink wink)
What do you do in your spare time, apart from knitting?
Party baby! Actually, I don’t go out too much these days. I suppose I enjoy cooking for friends, or watching a good movie, with a glass of prosecco.
What are your plans for Christmas?
Champagne, a good movie and someone special — perfect, along with a load of presents.
Do have a knitting project in mind for next year?
(Laughing) Continuing on the one I’ve been working on for the last few years!
If the book was to be made into a movie, who would you cast to play you?
Sweetie, there is no one who could play me – I would have to play myself! (thoughtful pause) Well, if I had to choose someone, I might consider Richard Madden or Jamie Dornan, as long as I get to be on set and get up close and personal with them, so they can get to know me better (laughter).
