Christine R

map-pin Preston, United Kingdom

I first started knitting to furnish my dolls house and then moved on to cuddly toys as babies were born into the family. I gave up knitting for many years after that in favour of other crafts until recently when I retired and reverted to my first love of toy knitting.
I knit for children and more complex ones for adults and the home especially bears, puppies and animals and like searching for unusual fur and textured yarns. I'm always happy to receive commission orders and can be contacted direct on handknithugs@gmail.com
