Hi, my name is Misa Buckley and I’m the blogger here at September Stitch. I’m mostly a crochet designer, but I love to weave, sew, and generally play with yarn.

I taught myself how to crochet in May 2014 from two Let’s Get Crafting Knitting & Crochet magazines, one open on the pattern and the other at the how-to section. The resulting soft toy was a little wonky, but I loved the process and immediately embarked on a small sampler from the same magazine.

In 2015, I got my first idea for a self-designed project. Being a complete geek, this project was inspired by my life-long love of Doctor Who – a shawl based on the Fifth Doctor’s cricket jumper.

These days, my inspiration for crochet designs can come from pretty much anywhere, and covers makes both big and small.

I live near Bolton in the UK, with my husband, two teens, and two adult children.
