Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by.
I’m a mid 30’s knitter and crocheter.
I live in Cardiff with the wonderful Mark and I’m a bit of a yarn-a-holic.
I started knitting just before my youngest brother and his wife had their first baby. My grandfather was a brilliant knitter and he’d always make baby clothes for any new arrivals in the family. Sadly he passed away before #niece1 came along and my Nan commented one day that it would be a shame the baby wouldn’t have anything hand knitted.
I made a tongue-in-cheek comment that perhaps I’d learn to knit which she took quite seriously… so it was actually learn to knit or disappoint my grandmother.
The rest as they say, is history!
Crochet followed a few years later and whilst I do enjoy crocheting, knitting is definitely my preference.
As well as regular updates on this blog you can see my back catalogue of projects over on Ravelry – I’m a stickler for order so have logged everything I’ve ever made! Some of my favourite items are listed below!
So if you have any questions drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you. When did you learn to knit and why? Share with me your stories!
