I am over 21 and I like a challenge. I like working with the public. I have worked in retail, trained as a secretary, hairdresser, cook and worked with animals. I have a close affinity to animals. I have two horses, a German Sheppard, a Russian Terrier and I will soon be getting a cat.
2. Where/how did you learn to knit?
M mum taught my brother and I when I was four. I didn't always have wool so used string to practise. Same with crochet. First thing I remember finishing was a bright orange teddy when I was five. I have been knitting on and off for years. When we moved to Ayrshire we got snowed in and only had 2 Icelandic jumpers mum had started. Ever since I have always had something on the pins.
4. What was your biggest disaster?
A palm tree Jersey made by bought wool. The weight brought the length down and turned out I was allergic to the green dye.
Favourite colours - green, cream and pink
If you make a mistake just rip it out and start again. Don't get frustrated. Ask for help if you need it.
8. What other crafts do you do?
I have tried my hand at jewelry making, bead work, sewing, spinning, clipping horses for shows and winters, cooking.
