Are you ready to join me on an adventure?
Whether you want to follow the exciting journey of these adorable characters, or flex your own creative muscle and make your own magical friends, you are in the right place.

Hello, nice to meet you...
I'm Sam, I'm a narrator of extraordinary adventures and conjurer of enchanted creatures. I use a hook, some yarn and stuffing to design and crochet charming characters. Each unique character has their own fascinating story that I document to share with you.
Growing up I loved to watch my Mam knit, I fell in love with yarn at an early age. Over the years I attempted knitting, my Mam teaching me the basics. I didn’t have the patience, I was too slow and I could never find a comfortable position for holding the knitting needles. I moved on to other crafts that suited my need for speed.

I started my own jewellery making business in 2012, eager to learn more about my craft I purchased some hobby magazines. This is how I discovered crochet, I had a free hook and I was curious to give it a go. I started with a 4 mm hook and a ball of Patons Fab DK spray paint wool from my local yarn shop. I started with a pattern for a single flower which I turned into a brooch and from there I was hooked. The joy of learning these new skills opened up a world of endless possibilities that I find so exciting. I was able to rediscover my love of yarn. I just love that the only limit is my imagination with each project starting with the same essential ingredients.

This is what I create...

When I first started to crochet I made a lot of accessories, scarves and gloves with basic shapes. By 2016 I wanted to take on a more challenging project. I decided I wanted to design and make a doll. There was a lot of trial and error, an array of designs and scribbles and counting. I actually designed and made at least 3 dolls before Travelling Ava. I was so excited to finally have the doll I had imagined. Crochet is even more exciting when you can use a hook, some yarn and some toy stuffing mixed with a bit of magic to bring it to life. I love to design new crochet characters, writing the patterns and the stories of their magical adventures.

I am passionate about crochet but I'm also enthusiastic about adventure. That joyous sense of wonder of discovering something new. I wanted to rediscover that feeling from childhood that everything is possible. Travelling Ava became my adventure buddy. We travel mostly around the UK together and occasionally get to see some of the World. I started to document her travels on her blog and on Instagram.

I decided that Travelling Ava needed some friends. I always have a head full of characters and stories and now had the ability to turn them into reality. Ava now has adventures exploring the real world. With her new friends, she also has magical adventures to enchanted lands. Travelling Ava and Co bring together that sense of discovery reminding you that the world is still a fascinating place. It allows you to imagine a world of endless possibilities and encourages you to be the author of your own adventure.

What I'm working on now...

When I started to learn to crochet I knew I had found my thing, my joy, my passion. Whatever you want to call it. I love the simplicity of a hook and some yarn and how quickly I can see progress being made. I want to share this enthusiasm for crochet with a like-minded community.
I have started creating a collection of crochet patterns based on the characters I have already designed. These early patterns have been published onto Travelling Ava's website - www.travellingava.com. The patterns are free allowing you to crochet your own Adventure Buddies.

My plan for the future of Travelling Ava and Co. is to launch a range of crochet kits in January 2019. Each monthly crochet kit will have a detailed pattern, magical story and will contain all of the materials to make an Adventure Buddy.
