I am a happily married, 38 year old woman. I lived mostly all of my life in the Netherlands.
I embarked on a magical trip when I decided to follow my heart, which not necessarily is easy and smoothsailing. In 2005 I married a guy from New York and left the Netherlands to be in America.
After several years of traveling with my husband, I arrived in the Pacific NorthWest of the United States of America. Its beauty took my breath away and I staid for several years.
Nowadays, I am uprooted again, but we hope to settle in NYC very soon.
Not too long ago, in February 2006, knitting and yarn have become my passion.
It started out just to kill time, but as time passed, I so deliciously found myself in a realm of colors, patterns, knitting needles, purled stitches, knitted stitches, books and … yarn … so much beautiful yarn…
Several months after I learned how to knit, I started to write patterns. Currently, I design easy patterns and produce picture tutorials.
Above all, I want to encourage everybody to knit! It is really not hard.
If little old me can do it, you can do it too.
