About designer Kelly Groves
Hello I’m Kelly, a crochet designer from Somerset, England.
Since learning to crochet back in 2010, I haven’t looked back and a day has barely passed where a hook isn’t in my hand.
I am passionate about crochet, in a way that I can only describe as, it just makes me feel warm, fuzzy, happy and relaxed. It’s what I was always meant to do! And it’s my mission to make everyone get as excited about a hook & the woolly stuff as I am.
You can find my designs here in my little corner of the Deramores site or on my social media sites.
