Our Story

I'm a 40-something knitter who also enjoys sewing. I work in marketing full-time but knit and sew in my spare time - they are my go-to when I want to relax or chill out with my other half. I also love running and reading.

I grew up knitting, taught by my mum and gran. Everyone I know knows me as a knitter. I’ve never been able to just sit and watch TV, I have to be knitting. And, I always have half a dozen things on my needles at one time. This can sometimes be the same needle! Sometimes I have too many projects I can’t wait to see the finished results for, so I knit them simultaneously.

My Yard and Yarn shop is about sharing my favourite materials and projects with fellow makers. I use everything I sell and I take commissions, message me to discuss what you would like.
