Hi, my name is Cleio, and I am a knitter.
My mother taught me to knit when I was a child,but I only really got into it again a few years ago. To my surprise, I found that knitting had become the cools thing to do. I think this may be the first time in my life I’m part of a trend!
Of course, being a knitter is only one of my identities.
My primary occupation these days is being a mother to my two wonderful little girls. During naptimes and in the evening I contribute in a small way to the family income by working as a freelance writer. I’m also an academic (have PhD and everything!) but that career is on hold for the time being.
In my spare time, if I’m not knitting, I love to read, cook and go out for walks.
I live with my husband and children in Dublin, Ireland.
