  • yarnsnknots – Welcome to my hobby endeavour, Crocheting has been a passion for me from my childhood. Learning it from my mum at an early childhood age, the crochet needle has been my best friend. Little did I believe that this hobby will launch me in for a big success - The Guinness World Record. This was after I had retired and successfully navigated through my best roles of a homemaker, a mum and a government officer. I attribute this success primarily to constant passion. Here is my experience, you may not think you are doing much till the time is right. So, keep that fire in you gently kindled at all times. The second most important one is never above learning, as learning never stops. The third, age is that number that holds you back, do your best at every year you get and it cannot hold you back.
