About

houndstooth weave

My name is Pam Southernwood aka Averilpam, and I live in Lancaster in the Northwest of England. I moved here from Leeds when I had to leave my job in a busy post office due to ill health.
I live in a little bungalow close to Lancaster canal, and have a small garden where I feed birds and grow flowers and a little veg as well as working on my crafts. 

I have loved to craft and create for most of my life, learning to sew on my mum’s treadle sewing machine. I later learned to spin and weave and started to make scarves with the yarns I created.  I have spun wool, mohair, alpaca, silk and various other fibres like bamboo and even dog hair.

These days I am also knitting, making mainly fingerless mitts, some scarves, hats and sometimes baby items.
