About Craft Fix: a Knitting & Crochet blog

Hi, I’m Janine from Ireland, and I’m a craftaholic! I get my craft “fix” wherever I can.

Knitting is my main hobby, having learned to knit as a small child in the 80s. I started crochet over 10 years ago and love it too.

My newest craft hobby is lego, mainly lego flowers and plants sets. I’m proud to be an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego).

I also dabble in cross stitch & am a sewing machine newbie. You can never have too much craft in your life. Although I probably can’t fit more craft supplies in my apartment at this stage! 🤭
