About Jo


I have always loved crafts, creating things, and using my imagination. My granny and grandma were also very crafty covering crochet, tatting, clothes making, cross stitch, knitting and patchwork between them (and possibly other crafts). There is also an architect on either side of my family tree so I think I have got the creative and imaginative side. I design in my head, work with them before I put them down on paper or actually make them. I cannot imagine another approach.  I learnt to crochet about 2005, from a book.  I love being creative, either my own or from existing designs.  I also have a website www.crochetheaven.co.uk if you would like to see some more pictures.

I also have learnt that I have ASD, mild autism.  This explains my love of colours, textures, finger fidgeting and just making things.  This may explain why I design in my head.  It may also explain why I can write with both hands similtaneously, or with either hand, mirror and upside down, 14 different ways.

I am an Autism Advocate and Speaker, raising awareness of this invisible condition, which brings so many gifts.

    • I think sometimes it runs in the family like that, and how it makes you think. I love old buildings too.
