Before I became AmiloFinn I was LornaJHart. The LornaJHart Channel on YouTube has been going since 2008. The first two videos I uploaded were Ballet Class (2008) and Halloween Party (2009). I now have a playlist of ten ALF Pictures, animations and movies I have produced with Amy, and also a favourites list which includes other people's animations that I have loved since I was a child; The Selfish Giant and A Christmas Carol from 1971.
My knitted gadget pouches were a surprise success at the December Craft morning in Northwood.
I learnt how to knit when I was in infant school and hadn't picked up a pair of knitting needles since then. However in 2009 I came across Kirstie's Homemade Home on Channel 4OD and was fascinated by all the crafts Kirstie Allsopp was exploring. When I watched the episode featuring knitting I remembered the earlier lessons I'd had with my mum and fancied having another go.
I began by knitting a scarf, then a blanket and then cushion covers, but these were very time consuming projects. Now I knit small things like the gadget pouches and things for my dolls.
I keep my phone, my ishuffle and my digital camera in my knitted gadget pouches. I use garter stitch, stocking stitch, ribbons and cross stitch to produce them and I find making them to be a short and satisfying project.
