Well I don’t just knit, I have a passion for crochet, sewing, baking, gardening……
well quite a lot of things really; however knitting has rather taken over my life recently and certainly depleted my bank account!!
I first started to knit at primary school when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I remember that giraffe so well, it’s a pity that I don’t still have it. I do however still have the felt ladybird pincushion that I made, the photo of which is in the Gallery somewhere.
I’ve also got the granny square blanket that I started to crochet whilst at college in the 70’s and finished a good while later. I am now in the process of stitching back together several holes that have appeared!!!
I have also found at the back of a cupboard a fairisle cardigan that I made in the 80’s. I never actually wore it. Look at the photo in the Gallery and I think that you will understand why!!!!
I am now retired, and with plenty of time on my hands, knitting, crocheting and baking, oh and gardening, when the weather is warm, have taken over my life and bank balance.
I started out making myself various “items”, but having gained an increased waistline due to the baking and a bulging wardrobe due to all the knitting and crocheting (and a depleted bank balance) I have decided to try my hand at developing a small knitting/crocheting cottage business.
Having no experience in such matters I am just bumbling around and picking up ideas from those others who are kind enough to offer advice and help; one of which is my dear sister who has already started her own handmade business – whilst she is still at work at that! x
Hopefully you will like some of my work and maybe consider ordering one of my items for yourself or recommend me to a friend?
You can contact me via email, my address is in CONTACT on the main page.
Thank you for reading this.
