Alex Sim-Wise's Profile

About

About me... hmm... well, my name is Alex (but everyone calls me Sim-Wise) and I am an ex-model/TV presenter (http://simwisesucks.tumblr.com) who comes from a very crafty family. Many summers were spent at my Nan's (her name is Pam BTW) learning how to sew, cook, knit... you name it. After losing my way for a while and forgetting all my skills, I taught myself to crochet again recently and am loving how quick and easy it is.

I decided to set up a shop with my nan after seeing all the wonderful stuff she had made lying dormant around the house. She's such a prolific and creative knitter I thought it would be nice to use my web knowledge to give it all good homes. Obviously I will be chipping in with some of my creations every now and again, but I'm not quite as fast!

I guess the next step is to get my Mum involved as she makes the most awesome…

Neither my Mum nor my Nan like to see anything go to waste, which culminated in a funny story once when my Nan found a dead bird by the side of the road and decided to send it to my Mum through the post (!!!) as she knew a taxidermist. I don't think I would have liked to have been on the receiving end of that one...

Anyway, take a look through our shop and see if there is anything you fancy. I try to send out everything ASAP and will endeavour to get things to you for Christmas.

Both me and my Nan are available for custom makes, just send us a convo with what you are looking for and we will give you a quote. Also, any requests/suggestions for future makes are more than welcome.
