A Newfoundlander born and raised, I returned home to St. John’s, on the very east side of Canada in November 2014, after spending 14+ years living and working in Toronto, where I went for a 4-month work term in August of 2000, and never left. (This might help explain the iceberg photo at the top of the page – courtesy of my brilliant photographer dad!)
I am a software report writer and dog mom to my adorable rescue, Kayleigh. In my spare time, I seem to have developed a love of yarn and fibre arts.
I learned how to knit from my grandmothers when I was a very small child but only picked it up seriously in 2010. Since then I have taken classes in drop spindling and Tunisian crochet (the basics, anyway)…and a spinning wheel became the latest addition to my fibre-y collection on Christmas Day of 2012.
Thank God, I have no interest in weaving…yet. I blame Shireen for the purchase of my Ashford Knitter’s Loom, and I released my first real knitting pattern in September of 2014. I now have five published patterns to my credit and a head filled with more.
I occasionally blog about cooking and foodie things, too, but fibre arts is definitely my main focus.
