I am unusual in some ways. I can knit right handed and crochet left handed. The reason for this is that my mum taught me to knit when I was about 8 years old. I taught myself to crochet as a teenager and as I am naturally left handed that's what happened. I love to design and make up different patterns. I love to do colourwork with slip stitches on my knitting. With crochet I never use a pattern, it just comes out as it is. I used to have my own Craft Shops but now I work from home.
