about your teacher

Hi, I’m Lynda from Homelea Lass and I’m an Australian crochet designer and expert teacher. 

I’m passionate about effortless design and crocheting easily. I know you want to spend your time relaxing and making beautiful things, not fumbling around with instructions you don’t understand and making blankets that look “okay”.

I discovered the healing and relaxing powers of crochet after I was knocked down by chronic fatigue in 2012. Crochet helped me to escape to my happy place and rebuild my life.

Blanket School has been great! I have made some lovely projects, learnt more about crochet and learnt chunky crochet. Great for beginners, and great for those wanting to expand on their crochet.
