About the Author

Jenny Occleshaw learned to knit, crochet, sew and embroider as a child. Crochet later became a perfect antidote to hours of music studies and sustained her through a nursing career. Jenny honed her pattern-writing skills while working for Patons and has since contributed patterns for publication to other knitting magazines. She is the author of the best-selling Fantastical Hats and Beanies, Tea Cosies, and Simply This.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
