About LoopsandLil


Passionate about woolly things and singing at the top of my voice when I'm home alone!

Crochet is my passion and a very important creative outlet for me. I was introduced to crochet at 10 years old by a lady called Mrs Nolan. She was the mother of my best friend and exceptionally accomplished at crochet and knitting. I remember being fascinated as I watched her make beautiful woolly things.

My true love is designing my own crochet pieces and patterns. Many of the items I sell have taken a long time to make and there is always a little love woven in along with the wool. They are often bought as future family heirlooms, of which I’m proud.

I chose the name LoopsandLil because all crochet begins with loops and Lil is a shortened version of my middle name which was passed down from my maternal grandmother Lillian.

I also sell at craft markets, fayres and artist open house events.

My workroom is at home and is full of yarn waiting to be worked into something or other.

I also teach crochet. If you are interested to know more please email me at julieaknowles@yahoo.co.uk. You can also find me via my blog LoopsandLil.wordpress.com and on Facebook and Instagram. Stop by, say hello and follow!

When I'm not crocheting I'm spending time with my 2 children who are 8 & 11 and my husband, who is old enough to know better! We also have a cat called Richard. He's generally roaming around outside and getting into mischief.

My guilty pleasure is singing Pulp's 'Common People' at the top of my voice when no-one is home ;)
