Hi, my name is Kirsty and I am a 40 year old married mother of two.

I have been knitting for over 30 years and dyeing yarns for nearly five. I was diagnosed with Fibromylagia in 2008 and left my office job to set up in business doing something more therapeutic.

I live in a small market town in West Yorkshire with my family, two cats and lots of fish.

My other interests are watching motorcycle racing, studying the relationship between religion and state (at Masters level) and gardening.
