About Alice

I am the mother of five fabulous boys who are the main culprits in keeping me away from creating as much as I’d like to.


I live in the North-East of England, near the beautiful Northumberland coast, and my guiltiest secret is the amount of yarn I appear to have accumulated without really realising how.

I guess it’s not a secret any more.

You can shop my patterns by clicking on the E amongst the social media icons at the top of the blog, or by searching my independent designer profile: Alice Neal on lovecrafts.com

I also comb the shores of our wild beaches and teeming rivers for treasures that I turn into jewellery which is for sale at www.fripperyandsparkle.com



My gaggle ❤️

  1. I certainly don’t know you but I would love to follow yourblog, learn more about you and try some of you patterns. I am Shari, 65 years old, live in Duluth, Minnesota, USA. Married, a whole heard of grown kids, grandkids and recently a few great-grandkids. I am an avid knitter, I have visited England and I loved it so much if I could get back there I would in a heartbeat! So, the journey of friends across the pond begins, I hope!

  2. i have your juno jumper pattern that was promoted by Tom Daley. i just have 2 questions-
    1. 0n the first increase row is the second stitch purled and then the rest of the row also k1p1 as is ribbing or is it done in knit stitch?
    2. are the increased actually in each of the individual stitches before n after 2nd stitch or are they made using the bar in between stitches?
    thank you
