Hi! I’m Wilma

I’ve been hooked on crochet since Christmas 2014. I started my blog with crochet patterns in 2016 and was able to quit my office job to become a full-time designer as of January 1st, 2018.

During the same time I was diagnosed with a rare condition affecting only a handful of people worldwide. It has become my life goal to find and meet others with the same condition. It felt like the universe was extending a helping hand as my work as a crochet designer enables me to travel freely.

I’m sharing my journey one stitch at a time through my Story Shawls, a collection of shawls inspired by my ‘extended family’.
