THE JOURNEY TO MY WOOLLEN EMPIRE
So you want to know a little bit more about me & my journey to starting Alice Yarn - FAB!
Well, I guess the story starts when I taught myself to crochet a few years ago. My sister got a crochet book for Christmas and when she didn't want it, I quickly snapped it up! From the first granny square I fell completely in love! My nana taught me to knit when I was about 6 but I would have tantrums every time I did an accidental yarn over & it would be hurled across the room! However, in the last year or so I have re-kindled my love of two needles and exploring knitting with a new found love.
I first fell in love with hand dyed yarn at Leeds Wool Festival, it was such a great experience & met some absolutely lovely people. I had well and truly fallen down the rabbit hole, and it was full of unique, special & sumptuously soft yarn!
Alice Yarns, and thus myself are currently based in the beautiful & inspiring city of York, UK. This city is fantastic; with a plethora of craft shops, groups & friends it's a place which inspires creativity & craft. Not only that - it has a great selection of gin bars. WIN!
