I began to teach myself to knit and crochet when I was about 8yrs old .I had a book, which I still sometimes refer to, and followed the instructions. Initially I was inspired by a granny square rug on the back of a relatives lounge.. I'd never seen anything so pretty and tried to figure out how it was made. I was fascinated by it and wanted to learn how to make one. So began my life long love of knitting , crochet and beautiful coloured yarn.
