I've mentioned here and on Twitter that I've taken up the knitting needles after a very long absence - probably about 25 years if I think about it! I've started gently with a scarf, moving on through a few beanie hats and the latest, my pride and joy, a bag.
It is exciting to rediscover my love of knitting because there are so many fabulous wools out there to play around with. But don't worry there will still be time left for jewellery-making, and I might even get going on a few Christmas decorations over the next week or two!
I'm married, one son, two stepsons, a grandson, one crazy German Pointer and two cats (all male). I love making jewellery, especially knitted and crocheted wire necklaces and bracelets.Before having my son I ran my own publishers' representative service, selling English books into Europe. It was really hard work but great fun and I got to see a lot of Europe and North America. These days I am happiest when I am close to home.
