About Me

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog!


I’m Christine and I live in a village called Winwick (it’s pronounced Win-ick) in Cheshire, UK, with my husband, two daughters, two cats and a dog.

Why Winwick Mum?  Well, that’s what I am 🙂 , but actually it all started back in 2010 when our local church newsletter needed some extra content.  I decided that I could probably write a short column about life as a Mum – but I was a bit shy about it and wanted to write anonymously in case people didn’t like it – fortunately, they did!  “Winwick Mum” came into being in August 2010 and I loved writing the columns so much that even after the church stopped producing the newsletter a few years later, I decided to carry on writing.

By that time, I had felt brave enough to venture online and start a blog, and my “Monthly Musings” were joined by posts about the village, my garden, my family and my other passion – sock knitting.

In May 2015, I published the Winwick Mum Sockalong tutorials designed to help beginners get started with their first pair of socks – and I’ve never looked back!

Today, my Winwick Mum blog remains the story of my lovely and sometimes chaotic life, my garden, my family and sock knitting, and I absolutely love the connections that I have been able to make with people all over the world – and where my sock obsession has taken me!


Thank you for taking the time to visit here today, and I do hope that you enjoy having a look around! xx
