map-pin Aldershot, United Kingdom

Hi, I’m 24 and love everything crafty. I have probably had an attempt at most forms of craft including soap making, paper craft, knitting, crochet, sewing, candle making and jewellery making. My favourite yarn to knit with is any form of DK as its so versatile; you can double or triple it up to make a heavier yarn as well. I love Val Pierce and Amanda Berry patterns as they are so easy to follow. I have been knitting since I was 5/6 years old, both of my nans were big knitters so I was taught from a young age. Unfortunately they have passed away now but I have continued to teach my self how to knit more complex items and have now branched out into crochet. As of 2019 I have decided to make more effort to record my knits and other projects, as well as further my knowledge of various stitches and techniques.
