Meet Miss Elle......

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:

  • Bats
  • Ducks
  • Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Harry Potter
  • Severus Snape
I am also a gluten free vegan, so recipes coming from me will be quite interesting :P

Lovely to meet you all!
