So..there I was doing my favourite Sunday morning thing, a tray, a coffee pot, a cup, a jug of milk and my latest read. Perfect for a lazy morning, well more usually afternoon. But because I like to take my time and drink slowly my coffee was cold half-way down my cup, I'd solved the second cup problem with a lovely coffee cosy but all was still not quite perfect. Brainwave, the cup cosy was born.

Hi, I'm a crocheter and knitter knut living in London with my husband, 3 kids and two cats. I love to create new designs as well as interpreting printed ones. I never stand still and as soon as I've worked out how to make one thing I can't wait to explore the next project. I do spend time and care over my patterns and revise them if I feel they need it. All of them are written with as much detail as I can and some include pictures of the steps. My feedback from customers has all said that they found the patterns clear and easy to use.
