Lynda Rennick, founder of Homelea Lass
Hi, I’m Lynda! I’m a chunky crochet designer and teacher and I’m from Ballarat, Australia.
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.
