I am a completely self taught knitter and crocheter even though my whole family knit/crochet, My mum is a speedy knitter and never had the patience and my mother in law manages to knit well but she?s all cak-handed and gets me really confused and both Gran?s can?t really remember what they are doing half way through, which is funny but not helpful.
So I got myself settled down with a number of books from the library and the laptop pointing at youtube. I taught myself crochet and knitting at my speed. I've now been knitting and crocheting for a few years now.
I've recently started passing my knowledge on to friends who have asked for help and thought I'd throw it out to the mumsnet local's as well.
Welcome to meet for a coffee and offer some help getting started or if you are stuck on something give me a shout.
I am currently knitting for my 23 month old DD and DC2 due in April.
