I first learned to crochet as a child with my Nana who loved all things yarn and often won prizes for
her beautifully designed Irish Crochet lace among many other things. As an adult I revisited the craft
almost a decade ago and became “hooked” all over again. These days I’m rarely seen without a
crochet hook and often take commission work. I try to share my love of crochet with everyone I can
as it’s such an enjoyable hobby that anyone can do.
