About

Hello! Thank you for coming to visit me here in my tiny slither of cyber space. My name is Juliet and I live in the city of Chichester on the South Coast of England with my daughter and son and my lovely husband.  I am a crocheter at heart and my daily mission is to never have idle hands, any spare moment I have I dedicate to yarn!  I am also an occasional knitter and a keen gardener and the goal of this blog of mine is to inspire you to go out and crochet, garden or knit your way to happiness.  If you love to create then this is the place for you! I hope you enjoy your stay.

Why yarnistheanswer?

When I was thinking about a name for my crafty endeavour, I wanted something that would reflect my reasons and indeed, I believe, many other people’s reasons to crochet, knit and create in general.  I came to crochet during a difficult time in my life and the more I get to know this amazing online community, the more I realise that this is true of a lot of us.  Crochet in particular has helped me immensely, in fact you could say it has been the answer!  So that’s where yarnistheanswer was born, through a desire to promote the healing powers of playing with a bit of yarn and a hook. Whatever your chosen creative outlet, let’s encourage each other to recognise the power that creating gives us to not only heal ourselves, but others too.
