I learnt to knit as a child, and sew as a teenager in school. I started knitting again in 2005 after randomly seeing something on TV about it making a comeback, and taught myself to crochet from youtube videos.
In 2011 I started to sew again due to getting a sore arm from too much knitting!, and did a brilliant pattern drafting class in 2015. So now I sew more than knit, so I actually have clothes that fit.
Being petite is not fun when it comes to clothes shopping - don't start me on trying to get shoes that fit...
Ozzy Blackbeard was my lovely cat, he's the one on the left. I now have two cats called Luke Spookling (in the middle) and Valentine (on the right).
