Hello!!!! I'm Miss Elle! You may know me from the Miss Elle Knits Podcast, or Twitter, or from working in Jumble Jelly, the fabulous yarn and haberdashery shop in Bradford-On-Avon!
I am a self-confessed sock-a-holic. I love to knit socks. Like really love. I have knit over 100 pairs of socks! My Ravelry project page is just full of them! My current aim is to knit 11 pairs of socks for Christmas presents... 3 pairs have been completed so far. Eeep, its only 3 months until Christmas!
I have a few knitting patterns for sale on Ravelry too, and a shop over on Etsy :)
Besides knitting, I love to spin. I own two spinning wheels. My first is an Ashford Joy called Joyce, and I bought her 2 years ago. My second was bought this year, and she is a Schacht Ladybug called Clarabelle. Here are my two babies:
I've been learning to sew as well! I've recently upgraded my sewing machine from a basic Brother X-5 to a Brother Anniversary edition 10-A! So much easier to sew now.
What else?! Oh! I've given up buying brand new clothes for a whole year, which started on September 1st. I can buy from charity shops, or make my own (of course, I can buy new underwear... but it will be fun if I can learn to make my own!).
Things I also like that aren't necessarily craft related:
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- Harry Potter
- Severus Snape
Lovely to meet you all!
