Annie Watts on

Hi folks! I'm Annie and I have been crafting since before I knew what "crafting" was. I took up knitting in 2002 on a whim when I found a pamphlet in a Michaels store. I've been hooked ever since.

I have been designing my own things for years but only started sharing them just over a year ago. I'm so happy to share all my ideas with everyone else!
