About Me

I’m 30-something and I live in a house with my mother, a dog (Gracie) and three scatty cats (Smudge, Jasper & Fatty). I’ve experimented with university, but find I’m much more suited for life as a stay at home crafter/admin assistant for now.

Below is some basic information about me, as well as some usual tidbits for any swap partners who might be stalking me 🙂

I adore merino, but I’m happy with any yarn, any fabric, as long as it’s pretty.

  1. I left you a message on FB about a pattern selection kit that can work with up to 576 patterns (or less). You can look at the minimalist version at: https://attachment.fbsbx.com/file_download.php?id=1613555438870696&eid=ASsd1SGALQMOPPYPtVnX1wIhLdVdZ5Lhzto-jNCbkRhA69urNpqjGZlwI42rT0XDGCs&inline=1&ext=1414792240&hash=ASui5NeVRLvtsTww
