Hi- Im Claire, im 37 and Im a newcomer to the site and to knitting in general- after seeing my mothers gorgeous creations I thought i would give it a go!! Im a mum of a daughter who is 12, divorced and eager to learn some invaluable tips on the knitting front. I work as a teaching assistant at my local primary school. I like good to cross stitch, and now knit, and read. I am a cheerful person who likes to laugh and am hoping to meet some new friends here too.
