Welcome to my rediscovery of knitting, crochet and all things’ wool.
I consider myself very lucky as I grew up learning to knit, crochet, sew, embroider and do other craft work from an early age.
At the time it didn’t seem important and definitely was never a passion or hobby just life skills learned from Aunts and grans and at school.
When my girls were growing up I taught them too and they also learned at school.
Now I’m older I have found that I just needed to pick up a pair of needles again. This is definitely an expensive hobby as decent wool and equipment can be quite costly especially when you’re starting from scratch.
Thank goodness for the internet too. I forgot so much and the books available are really expensive. I found founds loads of help on the internet in the way of tutorials and patterns but all at a price!
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I decided to take my knitting to work with me for break time and discovered that very few of the ladies had been taught to or given the opportunity to learn a needle craft of any description.
I found that they reluctantly admitted that they might even be interested in learning which I thought was marvelous.
I’d love to be able to help young and old people that have not had the opportunity, to learn a craft with no judgment. I was surprised that most young girls fear being judged if they took up something like that. I found it rather sad.
I couldn’t think of a better way to spend an evening making something for my home or an accessory as a gift or for myself.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
The goal of my site is to reintroduce needle crafts to those wanting to learn while learning myself.
I’m going to be trying out patterns and new wools and cottons available and even try out some crafting magazines and their patterns.
If there is a pattern or wool you would like me to try please let me know and I’ll do my best to oblige.
I look forward to learning and sharing my journey and hearing about yours too.
All the best,
