Hey there, my name is Jodie. (Yes, I’m a real person 🙂 ) Thanks for being here.
Why did I create this site? Mmm simple! I love everything knitting 🙂
I am an Australian, currently living in Spain (Jan 2019 update - now Mexico for 6 months) with my husband and two children.
I love knitting and have met so many other fabulous knitters through this site.
I love learning and helping others discover the joys of working with yarn. Please say hello!
Having Grandmothers, Aunts and numerous other family and friends all loving to knit, made such an impression.
Mum (who is now “Granny” to my two daughters) continues to knit and she is the inspiration for this site.
I have hilarious memories of knitting parts of a jumper pattern with Mum (Granny).
We were both working on the sleeves, me the right sleeve, Mum the left.
When we had finished, there were peels of laughter as Mum’s sleeve was one and a half times as long as mine!!
A lesson in knitting tension right there 🙂
I was keen to get back into knitting, having had a lapse of a few years.
I’ve knitted baby blankets, cowls and hats.
My latest projects have been a scarf for myself from the softest baby alpaca yarn, that was a complete disaster. I accidentally put it in the washing machine!
A scarf for my daughter that also is used as a blanket for one of her dolls.
For the love of knitting 🙂
