My name is San and I'm the creative mind and voice behind Loopsan. Originally from Germany I moved to the UK in 2010 to adventure a geeky life as a PhD student. Initially I ended up in Birmingham however after finishing my PhD I moved to Melton Mowbray, a small town in Leicestershire where I now happily life with my husband and 2 young children.
After learning the arts of crochet of my mum as a young child I picked up my crochet hook again as a way to relax during the stressful PhD times. I quickly started to design my own patterns as I couldn't really find what I was looking for in all the books I read and at the same time started blogging to share my makes with my family and friends all over the world. I never imagined that just one year later I would start to design patterns for various magazines like Inside Crochet and Crochet Now just to name a few.
Since we are living in a 60's house most of my designs are inspired by a mid-century modern feel. I like to design items with a slight vintage touch, which can usually be made by an advanced beginner. Since having my children my design focus changed a little bit as I'm designer primarily for my hardest critics in the world but the smile on their face after a design comes to life makes it all worthwhile.
I'm super excited to have now my own little corner on Deramores where I've added some of my favourite designs for you to explore.
