Hello

I should introduce myself. I am Emma, 29 (for another 6 months). As my address would suggest, I knit, also crotchet. My friend, who most knitting related bloggers would know as Dee, yes that is Dee from Posh Yarn!!!!!! badgered me into knitting last year. My earlier attempts when I was much younger produced scarves that started off for me, then ended up for my Sindy.



I was not exactly hooked at the tender age of 11. But I couldn't help but marvel at the wonderful yarn that Tony dyed, whenever I would visit my appetite grew, until inevitably I succumbed.



So here I am, several months down the line. My two sons have a scarf each, we have a teacosy (too small), 1 pair of socks (heel in completely wrong yarn, should have read pattern first), 1 jumper (soon to be unravelled to make something that will fit), 1 vest for my youngest (already grown out of). Thats all I can remember right now.



I few weeks ago my sister-in-law taught me how to crotchet, this was complicated. My sister-in-law speaks Turkish and a little english, me, visa versa. Nevertheless, I am a bag and half a cushion cover down the line and loving it.



I dabble in domestic-goddessness in between being completely hopeless at it. I absolutely love gardening and veg growing is my passion, this will be my fourth year and I'm hoping not to kill too much plant matter this season. I am also a sucker for glossy cookery and gardening books.
