Five years ago today I opened an Etsy shop selling little earrings made from tiny balls of wool & mini knitting needles, two weeks later I sold my first pair. I couldn’t imagine then that it would be a full time job and I can hardly believe it now…! Slowly but surely I’ve expanded my jewellery range and started designing knitting patterns and I couldn’t have done it without the support of all of you.
To celebrate I have lots of lovely surprises!
I’ve designed these mini balloons so I could have a little party with my octopus and axolotl.
You can download the pattern for free here and make your own celebratory bunch!
They’re just 5cm (2″) tall.
Perfect for a mini gift!
My little knitting and crochet brooches are just £5 (usually £6.50) until the 30th April 2014.
These were one of my first products back in 2009 and they’ve always been a popular way to show your love of crafting.
You can win any piece of jewellery or pattern of your choice from my shop. There’s lots of lovely crafty earrings, necklaces and brooches to choose from!

Facebook: Just like and share the birthday post on my facebook page.
I’ll gather up all the entries on the 30th April and choose a winner the following week. Then I’ll send the item of your choice anywhere in the world!
Thanks again for following my little world of wool over the last 5 years. I’m looking forward to much more yarn fun in the future!
