Crochet : Knitting : Macrame

Krista Peryer is a freelance graphic designer and co-founder of The Geek Foundation by day, and a fiber artist by night. After falling ill last year, she got into crocheting and found it to be the perfect outlet for her inner creative maker. She enjoys crocheting, knitting, and cross-stitching oddities, especially in the areas of food and video games, like Legend of Zelda and Portal themed halter tops, and carrot and sushi scarfs. Krista’s also been learning more about macrame recently, and loves blending different types of fiber arts together.
