Interview with Alice

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

Tell us a little about yourself?

Oh, I’m not very exciting really compared to the others. My name is Alice Price. I am married to Ned and we have four wonderful children. I’m a full-time stay-at-home Mum, which I love. It certainly is hard work with four little ones, but if I had my way I would have four moreWhat Star Sign are you?

My birthday is on 24 February, so I believe that makes me a Pisces – the fish. But I really don’t know what that means.

What is your favourite food?

Well, anything cooked for me by anyone else. Ned and I do try to have a ‘date night’  several times a month and I love going out to dine at a restaurant, but we normally have to go so early as I’m in bed by 10pm at the latest, as the little ones have me awake anytime from 5am.

Have you always been interested in Knitting?

Really, I learnt at school, when we knit endless squares and then we knit a doll’s outfit. I’ve always found it relaxing and started knitting again when our eldest was born.

What project are you working on right now?

I’m normally knitting something for the children, and right now it is a cute little baby beanie — it’s like a bunny rabbit. (Big smile)

Why ‘naked’ knitting?

Well, it was really Ned who suggested it. He thought it was a normal knitting club, and when I found out, I thought ‘stuff it’ — I like the people and I’m too tired to find another one, and Ned promised to look after the children. It’s so cozy in Luna’s I never notice I’m naked.

What do you do in your spare-time, apart from knitting?

(Politely laughs) I have four young children, all under the age of 10 — so I don’t have much spare time on my hands. I guess if I get the children to bed early, I enjoy watching a travel program on TV, particularly if it has lovely sandy beaches and sunshine – it has been a long time since I’ve had a holiday like that. In fact, it was probably our Honeymoon!

What are your plans for Christmas?

Christmas is all about the family. It’s Ned and my favourite time of year, so we go to town. My parents and Ned’s parents join us for an early dinner. By the time we get to make it to the Queen’s speech, Ned and I are normally asleep. The older children get so excitable and have us awake from very early in the morning!

Do have a knitting project in mind for next year?

Oh, well, I guess it will be more baby things or children’s sweaters, they grow out of them so quickly.

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

I would never have thought of it, but let me think — I guess it would be pretty exciting to have Emily Blunt play me, but I don’t she would have the stretchmarks!
