My name is Mark and I’m a guy living in Derbyshire in the UK. My family consists of my husband Jonathan, Oscar (dog), 4 cats, a degu and 2 chinchillas.

I’m a primary school teacher and Reiki practitioner.

I am very creative and enjoy painting, drawing and most of all crochet.

Many of the crochet projects I make are gifts however I do also enjoy selling the things I make. I’ve yet to write and sell a pattern but this is something I’d like to do.

  12. Hi Mark,
    I came across your blog while looking for some inspiration on the net – and I am really glad I did because you are creative and inspiring.
    I also love to crochet (I knit as well, but not so often) and I also give many of my works as gifts.
    I think natural colour hair suits you better than dyed dark. I understand you very well because I also started to turn grey quite early. Some years ago I said no to dying hair and I actually like my grey hair. My husband stopped to say “Have your hair dyed, you’ll feel better”. The colour of my hair has actually very little to do with how I feel.
    I present my works on my blog, but it is in my native language which is Polish.
    I wonder if you know Arne and Carlos – http://www.arne-carlos.com – they published a few books which I find inspiring – I think you would like them unless you already know them.
    All the best to you, Ivory

  13. I just found your blog, your freestyle crochet is awesome. I’m learning myself so I look forward to keeping up with your crochet.

  14. I love your blog. As a guy who crochets also, its nice to see that perspective. check out my friend and I’s blog. malehookers.net if you get a chance. Happy Hooking!
