About me


Thanks for visiting my blog, I’m Jo!

I live in the beautiful (but rather flat, according to my parents, who miss the rolling hills and moors of the peak district, even after nearly 40 years of living “down south”!) county of Warwickshire.

I love knitting and crocheting, painting and drawing, cooking and baking and anything else creative really.  I’ve created this blog to record my attempts at making life more colourful and fun through the medium of yarn, possibly with the odd bit of art and food mixed in for good measure!!

When I’m not doing crafty things, I can either be found pounding the pavement, walking or running, usually for some challenge that my work colleagues and I have thought up to raise money for charity, or curled up (under a crocheted Afghan?) reading a good book!

I hope you enjoy reading about what I get up to as much as I enjoy jotting it down every spare minute I get!
