Dutch, raised in South Africa, married to an Italian, now living in Ireland. Learned how to knit, crochet, sew and cross stitch as a child. I always have a few projects on the go and am eager to learn new techniques. Currently developing advanced lace knitting skills which I find challenging but so rewarding.
