About me

Hi! My name's Rachel, and this is where I talk about yarn on the internet.

Amiguru.me is a play on words, about playing with yarn. In Japanese, ami means to knit or crochet. In English, guru means expert. Put them together, and you have a knitting or crochet expert... me!

Okay, that's an exaggeration. I have been crocheting for more than five years. I'm self-taught, and I firmly believe the process should be easier than it is. That's the point of this website. As well as what I'm working on, I share tips, tricks and patterns.

Originally from New Zealand, I live in Geneva with my husband. When not crocheting or knitting, I'm reading, mucking about on the internet, or playing ukulele.

You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram or Ravelry.
