One day I was thinking...

I imagine quite a lot of stories start that way. Basically, I was sitting peacefully knitting, and I suddenly thought- what if, one day, I could actually earn money for this and do it for a living? Then I could retire to the cottage and keep a sheep and a pig and an alpaca and chickens, and grow my own food and have a lovely, self sustaining lifestyle! Well, as you can probably guess, that will be a long time coming, but I have to start somewhere, and this is it!

    Hello! My name is Clare, and I'm from the North East of England. Gran taught me to knit when I was tiny, and I started knitting clothes for my Barbies when I was about 8- since then I've upgraded to knitting stuff for full-sized people!
