About Craft Fix: a Knitting & Crochet blog

My hair is darker in reality, but I was working from stash (for once!)

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

Knitting is my main hobby, having learned to knit as a child *many* years ago!

I taught myself to crochet about 10 years ago and love it too. My neck & wrist are not so keen alas, so I mainly stick to small crochet projects these days.

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 stash much more craft stuff in my apartment at this stage! 🤭

I have also started designing my own free knitting and crochet patterns. You can subscribe to automatically get new patterns by email.

Are you confused about crochet or stuck on a knitting pattern? Would you like to request a pattern? Maybe you would love to be able to knit or crochet but don’t know where to start.

I’d love to hear from you. Just contact me and I’ll try my best to help.
