Hi I’m Amanda, a wife and Mum of two almost grown children who say I’m obsessed with crochet. I tell them I’m getting practice in early for being a grandmother – I’m not ready yet so no surprises please!

In early 2016 I picked up a hook and started to crochet for the first time since my teens. My amazing Grandmother “Nanny” taught me how to crochet and I had forgotten how much I love it. So much so that every spare moment is now spent with a hook in my hand and I have more projects waiting to be started than I could list on this page.

I have started this blog to share my crochet journey and my life. I love to grow, a gift from my Dad and have an allotment to grow what we then love to eat. I love to cook, a gift from my Mum. I’ve shared this gift with my youngest child, who makes the most amazing pastry, biscuits and cakes. As an aside I currently work full time in a busy job but there is is always space in my life for crochet and food.

To my family and friends who read this, and particularly my wonderful husband, I love you all thank you for all your help and support. I couldn’t squeeze in all that I do without you. You have given me the courage to write my own blog. You have given me the confidence that I am clever at crochet and I can do anything I want when I set my mind to it.
