Crochet hobby turned into a small business
I have been knitting and crocheting since the age of 9. After prolonged illness in 2015 I found myself getting frustrated by the lack of physical exercise and grabbed a ball of wool and crochet hook and started making toys for friends and relatives. I found that I was having so much fun and built up stock. In August 2015 I set up a stall for the Scarecrow festival in Flamstead, Hertfordshire and had a really good response. I even held a workshop for six children teaching them how to crochet. A local village publican asked if she could sell my toys in her pub/restaurant (The Spotted Dog). I will exhibit at the Scarecrow Festival again this year and have new exciting stock to show.
