About me

Location United Kingdom
Introduction Hello and thank you for reading my knitting blog! I am an enthusiastic and creative knitter with a strong interest in the design and technical aspects of knitting. I am the author of "A Knitter's Sketchbook", published in January 2019. My original hand knitting patterns can be found in publications such as The Knitter Magazine and I am a designer for Yarn Stories. As an active member of the Knitting & Crochet Guild, I regularly contribute articles to the Guild publication, Slipknot. You can always find me on the Guild Stand at events like the Knitting and Stitching Show, so please come along and say hello! As well as being an experienced knitter, I am City and Guilds qualified, having completed the Level Three Certificate and Diploma in Hand Knit Textiles. Research for my designs involves attending knitting events such as the Knitting and Stitching Show, The Knitting History Forum and the ‘In the Loop’ Conferences. I m constantly inspired by the wonderful Victoria and Albert Museum in London where I am proud to be a volunteer. I love working on projects which combine multiple knitting techniques with inspiration from everywhere I go!
