Hello! My name is Clare and Welcome to my new venture!

A little about me…

I first learnt to crochet and knit when I was pregnant with my daughter, I wanted something to keep my hands busy whilst I was on maternity leave and wanted to try something that I had never done before and I came across crocheting and knitting on YouTube and fell in love straight away! I have always loved crafty things since I was a child so trying something new like this I knew would come quite naturally to me with practice.
In November 2013 I opened my first Etsy store called Freya Esme (named after my daughter) creating and writing crochet patterns for a small fee and I have been doing that ever since and completely loved it, my store grew to over 600 patterns and over 2900 sales and a slight name change to Freya Esme Collection but as time went on I wanted to seek out a new venture still doing crochet and knitting though… and here it is!
I wanted to create a blog where I could share with you my crochet and knitting patterns, crochet/knitting tips and tricks that I have learned along my woolly journey and crochet/knitting stitches that you may have never seen or tried before – Since I learnt to crochet/knit I have crocheted/knitted basically every day so you could call me a yarn addict.
I would like to inspire other people to get creative and make things with their hands and hopefully pass that down to the next generation and I also hope my blog brightens up your day when you come to visit and you learn something new!

My Loves…
