About me

Location Glossop, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm primarily a hoarder, a magpie with a huge stash of yarn, knitting patterns, sewing patterns, fabric, clothes, vintage tea cups, recipes, films, books - you name it.

I have several blogs here, some of which are updated more frequently than others! Make sure you check them all out.

I have an Etsy shop called Rewound, selling reclaimed yarn, go and have a look.

I'm mostly vegan - yes, the terrible V word - which scares a lot of people, but really it's not that weird. Come round for dinner and I'll prove it to you.

I don't drink or smoke so this makes the usual evening activities rather tiresome for me - instead I partake of more wholesome, olde worlde, pre-technological entertainments such as more knitting or sewing, unravelling old sweaters and winding the yarn, reading aloud with my co-habitator, or having friends round for dinner.

I also love to dance - I am a moderately good modern jive dancer, and I'm learning to Lindy Hop.
Interests Knitting, unravelling, eating, sewing, walking, charity shopping, cooking, baking, books, films, and interesting and unusual people.
Favorite Movies Gone with the Wind, High Fidelity, The Slipper and the Rose, Strictly Ballroom
Favorite Music I'm very picky but not genre-specific. Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and The Mamas and the Papas all frequently crop up on my playlist. Swing is awesome, pretty much anything motown will do, and I have a deep abiding and unabashed love of disco. And Meatloaf.
Favorite Books Really big fat works of literature like Middlemarch and Vanity Fair.

Whoops! Your tongue is now a magnet. Whatever will you use for silverware?

My hands of course!
