|Following early retirement, I needed something to do whilst at home. My mum taught me to knit as a child and I have knitted on and off ever since. |
Most of my knitting has been for charities like: ‘The Big Knit for Age UK’, ‘Twiddlemuffs’ for people living with dementia, blankets and hats for the homeless but I wanted a new challenge.
My great auntie Bertha introduced me to crochet but other than a place mat I never managed to get the hang of it unless she was sat next to me so 35 years later, I decided to give crochet another go.
I followed some you tube videos, joined a local group and 5 years on I’m totally hooked. I’ve found crochet to be so therapeutic. I joined a Charity 3 years ago called ‘Octopus for a Preemie UK’ (OFAPUK) crocheting octopals and in the last 2 years became a volunteer coordinator for 4 hospitals, distributing octopals for the premature babies.
By selling my craft items it allows me to continue funding work like the above causes.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work.
