Random Facts From Kiki

Favorite Movies – Chunking Express/Fallen Angels

 

Favorite Yarn – Anything hand-spun or hand-dyed.  I can’t stand cotton, but could knit with wool for the rest of my life and not tire of it.

 

Favorite Candy – Milky – “tastes Like Mama”

 

Favorite Favorite – Stories move me more than anything.  A story can be told in any art form.  For example, I am consistently moved by the work of Wong Kar-Wai even though I don’t speak the language.  Leonard Cohen & Nick Cave tell the most beautiful stories with their songs.
