I am a Gen Y who was born in country Victoria with a grandmother and mother who were very arty and crafty.

I was the complete opposite, and apart from knowing very basic knitting, moved to the city to follow a science based career and all the money.

I’ve always wished that I were more creative. When I was young I wished that I could draw, and I was hopeless.

As I have gotten older, I’ve again picked up the knitting needles when life has gotten hard, and more recently have decided that I need to learn a bit more. From just plain knitting of squares to sew together to make a colourful blanket, to trying to make a crochet blanket to give to my nan for Christmas I needed somewhere to share this odd little pilgrimage.
