map-pin Shifnal, United Kingdom

My Nan taught me to knit when I was 11 and I probably knitted for a year max before getting bored.

Last summer I decided I needed something to occupy me and take my mind off work which did not involve electronic devices, so decided to knit again.

I can't believe how quickly it all came back to me after nearly 30 years

Knitting has definitely occupied my time and distracted me from work but the app on my iPad means avoiding electronic devices is a bit of a failure.

I can say I am now addicted and rarely goes a night without the knitting but I am enjoying creating unique items for me, my home, friends and family.
