My mum taught me to knit when I was just four years old and I have been addicted ever since. I now work (if you can call it work!) as a pattern writer and technical editor, both for companies here in Australia and for my own business. I love the creative process and using a simple ball of yarn and a pair of needles to make something gorgeous yet practical.
