Hi! Alexandra here. I’ve spent years tinkering with other people’s patterns or scribbling ideas down on various scraps of paper. Kororā Knits is me getting serious about writing the patterns down and sharing them with other knitters. You’ll find patterns, knitting tips and info on all my projects here.

I also love knitting patterns designed by other people and trying out new fiber arts – with varying success and I love trying out new things in my kitchen. You’ll find a mixed bag in Tangled Thoughts, but I hope you’ll come for the knitting, successes and failures, and enjoy the side trips into cooking and whatever else I’m fascinated by at any given moment.

Just in case you’re wondering – Kororā are the little blue penguins native to the Southern Hemisphere. They are rambunctious, raucous and generally adorable. Although I’m now based in Canada, I’m originally from New Zealand and its always fun to find these guys hanging out in the middle of the night on a beach somewhere.
