Lauren has been regularly knitting for about 6 years now and always has at least one project on the go! She finds it really addictive and a great way to spend evening in front of the TV in the winter. Her favourite type of projects are cardigans with lace work but she also loves knitting with chunky yarn as it grows so quickly.
