About the host:
Angela is one of CCNB’s staff members who is passionate about knitting and knits intricate samples for yarn companies.
After dabbling in a variety of other creative hobbies, including jewelry making, mosaics and quilting, she reconnected with knitting in 2017. Finding such a vibrant community of crafters, designers, indie dyers and podcasts about the craft out there she hasn’t looked back! Since then she admits to have becoming a bit of a yarn snob, using mostly Australian grown and dyed yarns, and according to Angela “It isn’t a good day until I have knitted a few rows”.
Angela finds knitting very meditative and is a firm believer in the benefits of knitting on mental health. The therapeutic benefits of crafts on mental wellbeing has been particularly well-publicised since the emergence of Covid.
Angela shared her knitting story with the Belong Club:
I learned to knit from my mother and my auntie, they both gave me instructions in the basics of knitting when I was around 10 years old. By the time I was in my mid-teens I taught myself a number of other skills like lace knitting and knitting in the round. While a senior at school I made heaps of my own knitwear.
She could talk knitting for days. Come and join this creative cat for a chat and a yarn.
