Okay if you have clicked this link it means you would like to know a bit more about who I am and what I do with the rest of my life apart form Bubs 2 Grubs Knitting, which you have graciously chosen to visit. Anyway here goes......
Hello everyone my name is Marcelle Irving but you can call me Karina (some parents should be shot when they name their children) and I am the co-owner along with my usually silent partner Tony, my wonderful and supportive husband of 5 years.
We have finally finished all our renovating and moving to put down our final roots on our little farm between the country towns of Wickepin and Kulin, 220km east of Perth in Western Australia.
As you can see from the photo (not the most flattering I might add) we do have Dorper sheep, this is me on the milk run to feed a few of my orphaned babies. Currently we have 30 girls, 28 babies and our two gorgeous boys Rameo and Stud Muffin.
My previous years have been filled with raising two boys and working mainly in various areas of retail. Now the boys are grown with children of their own, yes two beautiful grandchildren so far, I have decided to complete my dream of having my own business and why not have it involve my hobby of 18 years Knitting. My other hobbies include gardening- especially growing roses about 250 at last count, rugby union (go the Force!!!) and of course my sheep.
Tony immigrated to Oz from NZ (but we won't hold that against him) well maybe after 24 years he is probably a true blue aussie except when the All Blacks are playing the Wallabies. He spent his early years working on farms and now he is trying to master the transport industry.
The last member of our little family is Bella (the powder puff as she is called by one of the local farmers) our Malteze Shi Tzu sheep dog.
Anyway if you have got to here thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy your shopping experience with Bubs 2 Grubs Knitting, if you have any suggestions on how I can improve or products I need to stock please don't hesitate to drop me a line through my contact page.
