About author

MeiHi,
I am Mei and I am a foodie, yarn lover, world traveller, gourmet coffee drinker, a wife and a mother. From a very early age, I have loved sewing and knitting, my other passions include learning languages and travelling.

I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland in the summer of 2012, having lived in London for over 15 years and the last previous 5 years in Beijing, China.

I find inspiration in many things – especially in the environment around us – I wish I was a tidy person, but I love being surrounded by creative clutter!

I have just received a few sets of Chiaogoo’s New Red Lace Twist “Shorties”.  This new system looks so  amazingly cute, neat and tiny.  They are perfect for knitting socks and sleeves, and for small circumferences in the round and especially for people who do not like using DPNs.  The combo tips will be sold separately later in the year.
