Dreams and compassion mixed with crochet is what makes the world go round!

Hi & thank you for stopping by Nayu's Crochet Dreams!

Ever since I was little I wanted to own a handicraft shop, but didn't have a talent that could realistically do that. Fast forward quite a few years, due to permanent health reasons I found my initial yarn love of knitting tricky, I learnt to crochet a granny square. Granny squares involve no counting, checking of patterns or much thought at all now I've mastered them, making it perfect for when I had my day job and was I'm too tired to both write and do my other hobbies. I made blankets using the same colour or different colours stitched in rows, individual squares sewn together, or a mixture of each. I made a lot of blankets for friends, family, and charity, and gained confidence in my blanket skill.

I knew it was possible to sell crochet items online, and I thought 'why not'? There was nothing stopping me, so Autumn 2014 I posted everything on my review & writing blog, Nayu's Reading Corner. It took several months deciding to use Etsy, set up a crochet dedicated blog also called Nayu's Crochet Dreams, and with a bit of work my blankets are now available for you to buy.

From 1st July 2015 I left my day job to devote more of my time to Nayu's Crochet Dreams, and the rest to my other passions - writing (I'm hoping to start looking for an agent for my children's novel this year), reading (and reviewing what I read for publishers on NRC), as well as anime watching! Anime watching is actually research for both my novels and inspiration for colour combinations for my crochet work, so even when resting which for permanent health reasons I must do a lot of I've got ideas of new blankets bubbling away. I'm living my dream life one day and one stitch at a time!

Nayu's Crochet Dreams is about me sharing my dreams with the world. Each item is handmade by me, filled with happy, positive thoughts, letting the user of each item know they are loved and cared for, even when life throws a lot of curve balls. May every stitch encourage you to reach for your dreams, whatever they may be!
