Born and brought up in in South Wales, then studied for a Degree in Physics and worked in Systems/Software engineering field. I moved to Berkshire for my job, where I met my hubby, married and had children. My great love has always been 'knitting & sewing' being taught by my mum from the age of 4, making clothes for my dolls! I made my first cardigan for myself at 9yrs old out of Bright Red Pullman wool & made my own Wedding & Bridesmaids dresses.
Due to family responsibility I now work 'from home' in the 'Machine Embroidery' field, but dressmake and knit when I can.
Recently discovered KnitPro Karbonz needles (Carbon fibre needles!) - knitting with them is a dream and just makes me want to knit more, especially with the beautiful natural yarns that are available AND far too tempting to resist buying. I now know the meaning of a 'wool stash'!
