As my handle suggests I’m a crafter and knit, crochet, and look forward to a time when I can embroider again.
The rainbow refers to where I volunteer - Rainbow Support Services. I help to run a drop-in service with a bunch of great volunteers. Two of us started a Stitch’n’Bitch which called Rainbow Drop-in home. we've now relocated to the Old Quarter Pub.
I often refer to myself as a rainbowhead - cos I spend so much time there :) and get into a certain (far more patient) mindset when I’m in Rainbow.
My 'real' job is as an admin temp. So by day I push paper and by night I poke yarn. :)
I’m a drag king, so I have a particular interest in cool knits for men.
Oh yeah, and underscoring everything else - I’m parent to a blond bombshell who is gonna break hearts as she gets older.
