This is a Blog about a very special person Amanda whose user name on Ravelry is Mandaswoolenbits. I met Amanda on a Facebook page a few years ago and we have become firm friends. During my arm break Amanda helped me to complete orders and designed the lovely Ceecee's Sheepie Beanie using my logo. I asked her if I could steal what she had written on Ravelry to introduce her to you all.

Hi I am Manda from Mandaswoolenbits. I started crochet and later knitting to keep my sanity and help give me something to do it’s a great hobby that helps me relax. It also helps me be calm for my daughter who has some challenging behaviour.
I started writing down my designs when people ask me if there were patterns. I want to make my pattern ones that fit. Ones when a little change can make it your own. I also want them to be for everyone. Being dyslexic makes it a harder process but it just means I need amazing testers, which I have started to find.
Amanda's patterns can be found at.
I'm quite excited as over the next month or so I will be testing a lovely hoodie pattern that Amanda has designed.
Amanda's daughter Jessie makes some fabulous shawl pins, stitch markers and brooches. The shawl pin on my recent Free pattern was made by Jessie. You can find lots of her makes on her Facebook Page
