About

Hi! :-D

My name is Jenny and I run the shop, SheynasKnittedKnacks. I love everything crafty and the idea that something I've spent time and care making will find a nice home with someone. I started knitting (again) about 3 years ago, pretty much teaching myself from scratch. I found myself a little bit addicted and eventually wanted to branch out, so taught myself to crochet as well. One day, a friend suggested I have a look at Etsy and immediately fell in love. Here was a place where I could share the things I was making and buy beautiful things that others had made as well! So I set up a shop and started spending even more time making things and designing things, and chatting on the forums!

I make a wide range of knitted and crocheted items; from shawls and scarves to baby clothes, blankets and socks. But when I'm not doing this I'm…

I make a wide range of knitted and crocheted items; from shawls and scarves to baby clothes, blankets and socks. But when I'm not doing this I'm probably cooking. Whilst studying for a degree in English Literature at University I spent most of my time cooking meals for my friends and hosting video game-nights, movie-nights and pretty-much-anything-else-we-could-think-of-nights. Several times my friends said i should train to be a chef, but I didn't dare change my life plan. Then one day I realised that they were right. I loved cooking and making people happy with food (in much the same way as I love making people happy with knitting and crocheting). I have now been cheffing for 6 months and its fantastic. I've realised there's a whole world out there based around food and I am completely devoted to it.

As a vegetarian though I've found there are specific areas I'd like to delve into. One is writing recipes, so I do that a lot. Another is writing articles. Recently I decided I'd combine these passions and start creating my own vegetarian social networking site. As you might be able to tell, with all the cooking and knitting and crocheting and writing I don't have much time for anything else, but I still find time to read. So I suppose that's quite a lot about me; I love knitting, crocheting, cooking, reading and writing!
