Welcome to my crochet corner of the universe…
I learned to knit and crochet when I was small. At various points of my life I would pick it up and put it down because being a left-handed person surrounded by right-handed people trying to teach me things was frustrating. Things changed when I moved to Winnipeg in 2005 and my knitting coworkers taught me continental knitting. Suddenly yarn was a lot less threatening and really, really enjoyable. I passed the long winters knitting like crazy and during this time, I retaught myself crochet. At the same time, I taught myself Tunisian crochet and fell in love.
In the years since I started this blog (2015), I relocated to Ottawa for four years and most recently, to Upstate New York. I make and sell crocheted blankets. I also work as a wildlife artist.
I’m also a coffee shop philosophizer, and all around socially awkward nice lady. I tend to write the way that I speak. I am fairly direct and I make use of some colourful language. You have been warned!!
