Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
