Hey there, my name is Jodie. (Yes, I’m a real person 🙂 ) Thanks for being here.
I am an Australian, currently living in Spain with my family. 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.
After spending hours online finding some incredibly helpful information, I thought ‘Why not put together a knitting resource to help others?’
Our aim is to reduce the amount of time people have to search for fantastic, helpful knitting information, in short to Knit Like Granny.
For the love of knitting 🙂
