Hello and welcome to my blog!
My name is Kat and I created this little space online to write about my yarn-related hobbies: knitting and crochet, to connect with others and sometimes share photos of my two adorable cats, Stella and Ciri.
I live in Dublin, but I’m originally from Poland. I am a biodiversity and nature conservation consultant working independently from home, so I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, and whenever I don’t have to type, I knit or crochet.
I learned to crochet in primary school years ago, but I’ve only started knitting after moving to Ireland. And it’s also here that I learned to read crochet patterns and charts, mainly from books and Youtube! That’s why I feel much more comfortable with crochet patterns in US English than in my native Polish, and I can’t understand knitting patterns in Polish at all.
I don’t have much interest or creative talent to even try to design my own patterns – to me, just working with yarn, especially natural wool, is the best part of the process. I love following the pattern, seeing how it starts to take shape, and then wearing something that I made. I’m grateful for all the talented designers out there, willing to share their talent with us!
Thank you for reading and I invite you to read and comment on my posts 🙂
