This is my about me page.

In case you needed to know the random odd bits.

Who wants to know the essentials? Boring! Let’s do the Unessentials!

My name is Sarah and I live in the UK, in the North of England.

No kids. No pets. No droids.

I have a variety of mostly craft-based hobbies. I knit, crochet, sew, make my own soap and candles. I read. I write. I blog. I like to bake cakes and cookies. And bread. Yet the ultimate sourdough loaf has escaped me up till now!

Currently, I’m trying to knit a pair of socks. I also have plans for a top down sweater with a Fair Isle pattern, which I’m in the process of designing for myself. I got the wool for Christmas and I just need to measure myself and figure out the maths of the design. Which is the hardest part.

I’m interested in the environment, although I don’t do much with that interest. I’m also interested in space and science-fiction. All I can do there is read a lot around the subject (since I’ll never be an astronaut!).

My ultimate dream is to own a smallholding (homestead) and grow all my own food, sew all my own clothes and make everything else I need…but I’m not quite there yet! I have a lot of the skills already, just not anything physical.

Numbers confuse me. I’ve never been able to get my head around numbers. Letters and words flow easily but numbers get stuck in my brain.

What else can I say without saying too much?!

I’m not a vegetarian. I think it would help the planet out immensely if we all had an extra vegetarian meal a week, but I’m not…
