Crochet patterns, yarns and accessories to inspire your unique creativity.

I am Kate, a crocheter, Mum and chocoholic.
Crochet began as a hobby when I was 24 and has morphed into so much more than that. It began as something to do outside of the corporate job that never really fulfilled me. I then jumped straight into being a stay at home Mum so unaware of the impact that would have on my mental health.
I struggled with post natal depression and anxiety and crochet was and continues to be a vital part of my recovery.
The process of making things with my hands has given me a feeling of accomplishment and purpose that was lacking in my life as a stay at home Mum. That's not to say I don't love and appreciate being a Mum. My kids are amazing and I love them more than anything. But doing the washing and the dishes and vacuuming just didn't cut it for me, I needed something more.
Being able to point to something physical and say I made that today, gives me all the happy feels (ugh, so millenial!).
I began making blankets for everyone I knew, because the feeling of knowing something I made with my hands was keeping my loved ones warm, was just so comforting.
I then branched out into all sorts of other products and really found my joy with mandalas, doilies and home decor. I love turning yarn into works of art that deserve to be up on display, not hidden under a vase.
By sharing my original patterns and designs with the world, I hope to help other crocheters experience that feeling of 'Wow, look at what I made today!'
I love unique works of fiber art and think everyone should put their own unique spin on their projects.

My dream is to open a yarn store and cafe where people can come and connect, craft and enjoy great coffee and food.
This online shop is my first step towards that yarn store. By supporting me here, you are helping me get closer to that dream.
