My Bio

I'm a 40-something living in north-east England.  I am a knitter/crocheter.  My favourite knitting projects are my Shetland Lace scarves and shawls, and occasionally some sweaters.  When I'm hooking away, I like making hats, scarves, tunics and blankets.  Once in a while, I will get my sewing machine out, but I'm pretty basic skills-wise.  I also like reading, walking - I live on the coast and have one long pier, two beaches and two parks and lots of coastline (and a funfair !!!) within 5 minutes of my front door - and cooking.  I don't have any pets of my own, but I am on the 'stopover' list for several of my neighbours' cats.  I also get visited by some blackbirds each summer - they come for the free food!  Several types of butterflies also come to my buddleia plant - they are so beautiful and peaceful to watch.
