Interview with Cate

Welcome and thank you for allowing me to asking you a few questions:

Tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Cate Taylor. Cate is short for Catherine. I’m married to Mike, we celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary this year. I’m a few years shy of ’40’ and I work for a small law firm in central London. I’m pretty boring really.

What is your Star Sign?

I’m a Virgo – (starts singing ‘Like a Virgin’). You when I think about it, I’m surprised my mother didn’t call me Mary.

What is your favourite food?

Umm… that’s tough as I love lots of different foods. Italian would be my favourite. Oh, I also love a freshly baked chocolate croissant from Papa Jean’s café — hard to beat with a steamy hot Latte on a cold wintry day!

Have you always been interested in Knitting?

My Nanny Eileen taught me when I was really young. I loved having her all to myself. I used to love a stay over and she would put me to bed with a hot cinnamon milk and slice of apple tart. Erm, I wasn’t very good with knitting, I usually dropped stitches and ended up with lots of holes. I’m better now, as Alice often helps me out.

What project are you working on right now?

Luna got me started knitting squares, and then I hope to knit a lovely summer shawl.

Why ‘naked’ knitting?

Mike, my husband, made a joke about my New Year’s resolution, and it kinda planted a seed. I called Luna and met to make an excuse to get out of it, but somehow, she persuaded me to come along, and I love it now. Getting naked was really hard for me the first few times, but I don’t think about it now.

What do you do in your spare time, apart from Knitting?

I like reading, but it has been a while since I picked up a book. I enjoy cooking, and occasionally baking – but I end up eating what I bake, so that’s not good. You can’t beat a night in with a my mates — ‘pizza and prosecco’ – we love to watch a good movie together.

What are your plans for Christmas?

Christmas is normally spent with my parents, but mostly it ends up just being the two of us, and then New Year’s Eve with friends.

If the book was to be made into a movie, who would you cast to play you?

Are you kidding me? (Shocked look) I’m not sure — they would have to find an Northern Irish speaking redhead with pale skin and blue eyes and big boobs…  I’ve really no clue — is there such an actress?

Interview with Carlos

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).
