Hey, I'm Merihell , I'm 24 and a shop assistant living in Glasgow.
I have always been a little bit arty and I was brought up in a creative family. My mother had a "sewing room" at the top of our house and it was a little treasure trove of craftiness: stacks of fabric, mountains of yarn and boxes of buttons and ribbons everywhere! My sister Fiona studied art and for a while worked as a lighting designer but found her true calling in making Jewellery.
I myself got into the crafts after Christmas with my family. My other sister, Viki, was working on some knitting projects and gave me a pouch she made for my phone. She showed me the ropes and I found myself wanting to knit constantly when I got home. On a recent holiday Fiona showed me how to crochet a granny square and I found myself addicted although I quickly got bored of squares.
Now I'm trying out amigurumi and I have completed a couple of critters which I have given to my flatmates. Keen to find some good patterns to try out, especially of monkeys, cos that's what my boyfriend's been pestering me for.
