Hi! I'm Tammy, a Canadian living in the Netherlands with my Dutch husband and two spoiled little dogs. My crafty passion is knitting, but I also dabble in crochet, cross stitch, and quilting. My other hobbies have included gaming (MMORPG's), painting, photography and playing around in Photoshop. I first learned to knit and crochet as a young teen. Both my mother and grandmother were very crafty but I unfortunately didn't catch the bug until much later after I was already living an ocean away. Thankfully, the internet was there to fill in the gaps so that I could teach myself and pick up where I left off. I wasn't really serious about any crafts, working on just one or two projects each winter, until a few years ago when I picked knitting back up as a hobby during a stressful period. It seems to have stuck and I have been knitting more and more over the last three to five years. I have also started to dabble in my own knit designs, which I find really fun and exciting.
