The Missing Yarn

About shop As a child I was always creative. I could draw, paint, sew, knit and embroider. My great Aunt Alice was an avid crocheter and I longed to be able to do what she did. I’m left handed and after many unsuccessful attempts to teach me, she finally gave up on me. After the tragedy of losing My dear mum Josie in my late 20’s, I suffered terribly with anxiety and needed a distraction from my overactive mind. I was at an exhibition sitting next to a lovely Irish lady from the UK Hand Knitting Association. I picked up a hook, she taught me the basics of crochet there and then and sent me on my way. I was instantly addicted and began designing immediately. I made amazing creations, but never having learned how to read a pattern, I had no real idea of what stitches I was using! I needed proper lessons. I heard of a very lovely lady named Helen who taught me how to read patterns and showed me new techniques. From this, The Missing Yarn was born. I love playing with different stitches, styles and textures. Many of my designs are born out of my love of fashion and desire to be different. My designs have appeared in Inside Crochet, Crochet Now, Simply Crochet, Mollie Makes and the Crochet Society Box. You can find more of my patterns at www.themissingyarn.co.uk When I'm not crocheting, I’m a single mum to the most amazing identical twin boys whose drive and determination to succeed amazes me on a daily basis. I’m so proud of the young men they are becoming. We live in a sleepy English village in Cambridgeshire with our little dog Coco.
