Anne Hanson (of knitspot) – In A Minute Portrait (Week 219) 

Please, meet my dear friend Anne Hanson in this inaugural episode of the new sub-category “In A Minute Portrait” of my Moving Postcard web series.

Hanson is a knitwear designer and yarn manufacturer who owns the
company knitspot. I also know her as a photographer, painter, writer,
book designer, teacher, gardener, cyclist, runner, wife of

Whitfield and a long-term friend of mine. In short: Anne rocks!
Make sure you check out her blog and company’s website: … and the variety of natural yarns she sells!

she visited us this past weekend from Ohio, I was determined to have
her in my weekly video (as with all my friends who visit or whom I
travel with). When our original plan for a shoot fell through, I
spontaneously decided to give the idea of “1-minute interviews with
creative, inspiring or just plain awesome friends” a shot. Anne was so
kind to agree – and the sub-category “In A Minute Portrait” was born.

a 1-minute interview is very short – and the way I handled it with
insisting on 6 questions (which then caused some jump-cut editing) it’s
very rapid fire. I’d like to do this (same questions, different person)
maybe once a month or every other month. So I’m interested in your
thoughts. As far as I plan, next week will be a regular In A Colorado Minute video again… but you never know who might visit or inspire me.
