A first post is a tricky thing. It should set the tone of the conversation and at the same time be pithy and invite further reading. There is a danger of setting expectations too high, or unduly narrowing the topics of interest.

Suffice to say that this journal is space of exploration for me. A platform to investigate and develop my love of knitting, sewing and other hand-crafts, as well as the inspiration that design, architecture and photography provide to my creativity.

I hope that recording my progress here will encourage me to learn new skills and take greater risks in order to become ‘a dab hand’ at these rewarding crafts. I would welcome your thoughts and suggestions on my progress!
