About ChevGirl

Hi

My name is Kate and I hail from a small North Canterbury town called Cheviot hence my name on here 🙂  I have lived in a few places including Wellington, Cheviot again,Central Plateau area of the North Island and Auckland. I am a stay at home Mum to three gorgeous girls called Ariana, Makayla & Holly. They keep me busy but I still manage to find some time to do some things I love like knitting, baking, gardening and occasionally sewing. I am always looking at new things to make as others are continually inspiring me. If I honest, knitting help’s me chill and focus. I need that after running around with the kids.

Mum taught me to knit when I was young but it was very basic and she was always there to fix a mistake and cast on for me! Since I had my first daughter I decided to try more knitting patterns out. I called Mum quite a bit to ask questions like how do I cast on, cast off and increase and decrease. She was able to do this over the phone and I was able to knit all sorts for Ariana. I am now into seamless patterns on circular needles and am going to give sock knitting a go too although this always gets put on the back burner! 🙂 I love www.ravelry.com something wicked – so many awesome patterns (lots are free) to be inspired from.

I have been doing custom knitting but to be honest it is hard work and I was loosing the love of it. I am wanting to be creative and not be told what to do!! I am now starting to design my own patterns which is totally exciting and a new challenge.

I am no expert but I am willing to give things a go and experiment. I hope this inspires you too to give some things you see a go as well. Thanks for looking. 🙂
