I taught myself how to knit a few years ago, when I was unemployed, and I haven’t been able to put down my needles since ! (though I did get a job eventually). I knew how to crochet before then, my grand mother taught me during a long summer holiday, but the needles sort of have taken over the hook.
Whenever I take interest into a craft, I like to understand it as much as I can and explore its possibilities. So far, altering patterns and now designing are my way of learning some more, and I hope you’ll enjoy the outcome.
