MEET NAALD 5

“Kleur, kleur en nog eens kleur. Oh wat hou ik van kleur!”

My name is Jolanda and I come from Ermelo, a village in the Netherlands. You can find me on Instagram and Facebook as @_naald5. I've always had much love for color. It probably will not surprise you that I once dyed my hair in all the colors of the rainbow. At that time I was also called the "Rainbow teacher" at work. In daily life I work in the swimming pool in Ermelo as a swimming lesson coordinator. Swimming lessons, aqua jogging, trim swimming - you name it and I'll do it. I feel like a fish in water.

Besides my work I like to be creative, my main hobby being crochet. I started in 2008. With a book, ball and a crochet hook from my mother I taught myself to crochet using patterns.

I crocheted for hours on end: during breaks at work, in the pub, at festivals and on the train. Everywhere I went my balls of yarn came with me. Together with a friend, I started crocheting bedspreads to order via the internet, under the name "Crochet in Progress". We had a waiting list of 8 months and once every 2 weeks a 1 or 2 person bedspread rolled off our needles. We crochet most projects with crochet hook 5 and so our follow-up name ‘Naald5’ was born.

In 2018 I took the plunge and registered for the competition "De Haakster van Nederland" via Wolplein/Yarnplaza. I made it to the finals and ended up second. For me this was the first experience with making and writing patterns. It's so cool to come up with a project, convert it into a pattern and then make a lot of people happy with it.

I fell immediately in love when the yarns from Yarn and Colors came onto the market. The beautiful bright colors really appeal to me! Working with Yarn and Colors as a designer is really a dream come true. The patterns from this lookbook flew off my needle. We chose to call this lookbook "Sunny Side of Autumn". After all, autumn is not only gray and cold, but also has sunny sides, which I really wanted to emphasize.
