to Lymphoma Lass… a home to cancer awareness and crochet

I’m just a lass who got lymphoma…  Sssssh… If you know who I am, please don’t say…

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system, in 2015. After 1 mass the size of a cricket ball, 2 blue-light ambulance rides, 6 months of chemo, 5 days in Critical Care with PCP pneumonia, 15 radiotherapy sessions and 5 fractured vertebrae… I’m still kicking… The current project is trying to find a “new normal”, while I play the waiting game to find out which statistics I’ll form a part of.

In the meantime, I wanted to live life as fully as I could and to give back something, through my free to download crochet designs for brooches, badges and a wig (!), and now a little knitted design too…

These are available on Ravelry at:
For more on me see me on Facebook at:

I’ve got myself on Pinterest, and having bought my first smartphone, I’m now at last on Instagram and Twitter – just look for Lymphoma Lass in all these places.

It’d be great to share a few tweets and photos… Please hashtag


… just…. Ssssh, if you know who I am, please don’t say….

Much love
