A knitter, a musician, a tea drinker, a cake baker, and a soon-to-be student (again)... that's me.
I've been a cake baker and tea drinker most of my life, thanks to one Granny teaching me to bake, and the other Granny encouraging me to drink. Tea, that is. I've been a musician since I was a teenager, but a professional one for the last 6 years. My instrument is the flute, and I also teach it to sprogs and grownups. I organise concerts occasionally, and in a bid to boost my esteem with regards to the event management, I'm starting a Masters in the art of doing it properly in September.
The knitting obsession began about 3 years ago. I was starting out on the self-employed career ladder so my brother bought me a knit-a-monkey kit, in case I got bored/stuck for something to do! Little did he know that this cute little monkey would lead to a wool addiction. In fact, neither did I. It took me a few months to get started on the wee critter, since I hadn't held a knitting needle for about 10 years. Then I remembered you need two knitting needles for it to work, enlisted the help of a visiting friend and knitting extraordinaire, et voila, the monkey was unleashed!! Since then I've been knitting pretty much constantly and now have an online shop at http://www.folksy.com/shops/easyosy where I'm attempting to sell some of my wares.
And that's what has prompted me to start this blog. When I knit, I think... sometimes about what to knit next, but more often about life, the future, the past, blah blah. I read some fellow Folksy sellers blogs recently and thought that it looks like a good way of noting some of my ideas that I have when I'm knitting. And who knows, now I might actually get round to doing some of the great things I come up with!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy following my blog. Please feel free to get in touch, and don't forget to visit my Folksy store and Facebook page too! x
