Portrait

Hi, I am Steffi! I am the maker behind SkillfullyTangled and I love all things yarn related. I first learned to knit and crochet when I was in elementary school, although I didn't stick with it for very long.

About four years ago I decided to get back into crochet, mainly to crochet some stuffed balls for our little kittens. From there I ventured more into amigurumi - the Japanese art of creating 3-dimensional objects with crochet - and hats and scarves. But one needs only so many teddy bears and hearts, and I wanted to make more wearables like sweaters and socks. I decided to give knitting another go, and thanks to online tutorials and videos (isn't the internet great!) I knitted my first hat!

I totally caught the bug, and and since then I've rarly put my needles down. I've dabbled in dying yarn as well, and hope to do more of that soon. At some point I am also intrigued in trying out weaving and spinning.

In my spare time I also enjoy reading: mainly crime novels, whodunnits and thrillers. Some of my favorite authors are Agatha Christie, Anthony Horowitz and Harlan Coben.
