About Me

Hi! I’m Ashley.  Thanks for visiting my blog!

*This blog & this post may contain affiliate links which means that I may earn commissions from qualifying purchases made through these links at no cost to you*

I’m a crochet designer that lives in Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and 2 adorable children.   I started my blog www.theloopylamb.com in August of 2018 in order to share my passion for crochet and crafting with others.  

Crochet started out as a way to relieve stress and anxiety but soon became a passion for me.  Once I started to design my own projects, I couldn’t stop.  I just fell in love with it.  Now I share my passion for creating here on my blog with you. Outside of crochet, I love birds of prey, baking and reading.    

October 31st, 2023 – my first book Crochet Furry Friends becomes available in the Europe and the UK and launches November 14, 2023 in North America.

Everyone in the pattern creation process (testers, tech editors and designers) are all human and although every effort is taken to ensure there are no errors in pattern, sometimes they still happen. If you have found an error in one of my patterns, please contact me and I will address it as soon as I can.   Please be kind if you find a mistake.
