Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m Amy and this blog is about my struggle to teaching myself knitting, sewing, DIY …just general craftiness!
I got the urge to pick up a pair of knitting needles a few years ago when I was given a big stash of needles and yarn that belonged to my Grandmother. Memories of knitting a multitude of scarves in different coloured stripes surfaced, and I thought maybe it was time to give it a go again and see if I could get beyond the basic scarf!
Since then the needles have barely left my hands! In all my learning about tension, stitches, seaming and deciphering patterns, I realised that there was a whole world of incredibly skilled people out there, writing blogs to encourage and teach people crafts like knitting an sewing. I started reading more and more blogs and became completely inspired by the bloggers. Recently I have taken a few tentative steps into the world of sewing…so far I am loving it!
This blog will mark my progress and hopefully one day I can inspire someone else to pick up some knitting needles or get that old sewing machine threaded!
