MP (MariaPaula) is a medical school graduate that loves making things beautiful, whether it is with makeup, yarn & hook, or anything she can find laying around her house. MP came about with crafting in 2010 when she wanted to learn how to knit, and since it was almost winter, she wanted a scarf. MP then took a pair of wooden chopsticks, applied thumb tacks on the ends of them, and formed the tips of the chopsticks into her first pair of knitting needles. She didn’t have any yarn laying around, but she did have an old sweater that she didn’t use anymore. Unraveling it, she started to knit herself a scarf, and VOILÀ! Her first creation was made, which is the scarf in her profile photo.
