Once upon a time, in the land of memories and dreams, there was a young girl. She liked to lie in the warm patches of sun cast by the windows and whisk around the house in a half-dance half-run, whilst softly singing some odd little tune. She was taught to sew and cook and dance and play music, as she thought all little girls learned to do. And she would follow her mother to craft fairs and spend her pocket money on odd little knick-knacks, as she thought it was perfectly natural to do. She grew a little taller and a little older and seemed, for awhile, to outgrow her whimsical former self. But we never quite outgrow ourselves, do we?

One day, she agreed…

She was taught to sew and cook and dance and play music, as she thought all little girls learned to do. And she would follow her mother to craft fairs and spend her pocket money on odd little knick-knacks, as she thought it was perfectly natural to do. She grew a little taller and a little older and seemed, for awhile, to outgrow her whimsical former self. But we never quite outgrow ourselves, do we?

One day, she agreed to make note cards to help a good cause. The project went well. The cards were sold. Children were helped. And the little girl was happy. Then a strange idea came to her. School could be expensive. Perhaps she could sell some of her creations to help her get through it. The egg cracked; the dragon hatched. And soon the knotted dragon had its first fair. Its first online shop followed soon after. And in time, it moved to its current location in the land of Etsy.

One day, the girl saw that her mother was playing with yarn, and she decided she wanted to play with yarn too. So she picked up some yarn and a hook, a book and began. It wasn’t easy at first. It was hard to tell where the hook should be and where it shouldn’t be. But soon she had a scarf. Well, sort of. It had tight stitches in one part and gaping holes in another. Then she made a scarf for a friend. It was a little better. Then she made more scarves for other friends. Each was better than the last. Eventually, she could make a perfectly respectable scarf. Then she moved on to other things: hats, a blanket, even a corset…

One day, she decided to add one of her crocheted creations to her shop. Then she added another and another… until eventually her shop was overwhelmed by crochet and became the little treasure trove of scarves and cuffs, hats and gloves, and other stuff that it is today.

So what happened to the young girl, you ask? Well, she grew a little taller and a little older, and now she lives in a little green room with a great big chair, hundreds of books, and two tiny fluff balls (aka roborovski hamsters). She learns languages, reads books, hoards words, writes essays, and translates poems. In other words, she is a graduate student.
