Aphaia is a 30-ish-year-old Geordie who has lived in Scotland for the last 10 years or so, and has no intention of leaving.
She likes knitting, and started knitting again after many years as a friend showed her some pretty yarn. Pretty yarn turned into a scarf, at which point the BF and the mother wanted one too. Three scarves later, and the knitting bug was back, which eventually led on to her designing her own patterns.
She is now the proud owner of a rapidly growing stash, many FOs, several WIPs which she currently believes will never end , random knitting paraphernalia, a wheel, a loom and several guinea pigs (which admittedly aren’t knitting related but are seriously cute).
She has a real career (and is currently retraining as well), but gets easily distracted by Lego, shiny things and yarn. She also likes whisky, archaeology, ancient history and talking about herself in the third person.
