I have been a crafter for many years and have really enjoyed learning every form of knitting, crochet, tatting and macrame I could find. Generally my crafts were presents, thankfully wanted and admired.
I became disabled some years ago and, with time on my hands, started crafting for something to do instead of just presents. There is always so much to learn and keeping active is good for me.
Desiging patterns was something I did for friends. They would come to me wanting to make something but either couldn't find a pattern or had problems with a technique. I found out what they could do and designed my patterns around that. It was suggested I put them online as others may like them also.
I belong to the local Stitch and Sip group and spend time helping others learn the techniques they need to make the items they would like. I like to encourage people especially young people to take up yarn crafts as they are very rewarding and helps them to learn new skills.
I have shops on Etsy and Folksy as Eclectic Yarncrafts and sell yarn at http://eclecticyarncrafts.yarnshopping.com/ .
I like pretty bibs as they make nice gifts. Something a little fancy for special days.
30 stitches / 32 rows to 4" (10) cm over main stitch pattern.
