When did you learn to crochet?
I first learnt to crochet four years ago after attending a lesson in a lovely little beach studio with fellow iger @sweetsharna. After I’d mastered the granny square there was no stopping me!
And how did that turn into designing your own patterns?
I loved the idea of creating new modern crochet patterns, so quickly got to work on some of my own ideas and designs.
What is your favourite thing to make?
I love making bags! They are a quick and easy make and something you can use all the time. I’ve recently started making more for the home too…watch this space.
Which colours do you love working with?
I live by the seaside so I’m always inspired by soft pastel tones. The colourful beach huts always inspire me.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I’m always inspired by the seaside. I love learning new techniques and discovering new stitches.

Which other designers do you admire?
I just love the modern, fresh designs of Molla Mills. Having previously worked with Molla on a crochet project I am in awe of her crochet skills and designs.
How many WIPs do you have?
Too many! Work is constantly getting in the way of my crocheting.
Where is your favourite place to crochet?
On my sofa in the evenings with a cup of tea and some chocolate!
Getting my summer granny on with some new modern twist inspo…watch this space. Also, lovely to hear there’s a new Subs Box on the block, have you seen it yet?

Who do you like to make crochet gifts for?
My daughter is always putting in requests for things but I also enjoy spending time gifting crochet items for charity.
What piece of advice would you give to a new crocheter?
Plan your projects before you shop for yarn! It’s so easy to get carried away buying all the yarn…apparently, not that I would know!
What are your crochet plans for 2019?
I have lots of exciting collaborations coming up in 2019 and I’m putting together a collection of patterns for my new website.
Where can people find out more about you?
