Hi, and welcome to my page.
My name is Katja Simončič. I am a stay at home mum of two little boys. We live in a small town, Krško in Slovenia.
Since I was a little girl, I always did something with my hands. I have been crafting and creating jewelry and toys as long as I can remember. My passion was making beaded jewelry, but when I got pregnant, I had to lay down a lot, and you can not work with beads that way. I just have to create something, so I fell in love with crocheting again. Especially amigurumi and tapestry crochet, but I like crocheting hats, baby blankets, shoes, dresses, everything.
Crocheting is a big part of my life now, and as we all know, crocheting, buying yarn, and collecting patterns are three different hobbies.
Why I created this blog?
I created this blog because I wanted to share patterns, that I love to collect so much. My goal is to connect crocheters and make a page where we could help each other, get to know each other, and form a community.
I will post a lot of free patterns from different designers; I will interview successful designers so that we will get to know them, their story, and what inspires them. Because I know that crocheters don´t have time to read, but we do like background noise, I will make video interviews. So that you can enjoy them while you crochet.
In my blog, you will read crocheting tips, I will write about yarn and yarn shops. And of course, I will share a lot of crochet patterns.
I respect pattern creators.
I think they are really inspiring. That is why I will link to their page in my posts. I will not share patterns that are payable for free.
