About

I learned to knit at my grandmother knee at the ages of about 7 and knitted right through school and up until my children got to an age where they refused to wear hand knits. I started knitting again seriously, about 11 years ago after a hiatus of about 10 years. Then I discovered the online knitting community. Knitting on a small island in the middle of the English Channel can be rather lonely.

Thanks to the Internet I have rediscovered my knitting mojo, learned to spin, acquired a stash ( both yarn and fibre) bought a wheel and started designing in earnest – not necessarily in that order.

These days I spend my time designing for a range of  independent yarn companies and magazines here in the UK and across the pond in the US, as well as self publishing a number of designs through Ravelry.com under my Ravelry name

One thought on “About

  1. Hi, I’ve just bought the good fortune shawl pattern. I’m confused about amounts. I have 300m of shilasdair yarn from a Skye wool dyer (lovely you should google and have a look). Is this enough? I note that you say on ravelry 300m and the pattern says 200g.
