Crafter, designer, knitter.

When did you first start knitting / crocheting and where did you learn?

I learned to knit a basic knit stitch from my Mum and Nana as a child. But it wasn't until decades later that I picked up the knitting needles again and started to enjoy and teach myself the craft.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

Probably a half finished scarf for my Cindy doll.

Who are your favourite pattern designers and celebrity knitters & crocheters?

My current favourite is Edinburgh based Kate Davies and her Fair Isle designs.

What are your favourite things to stitch and do you have a favorite item you've made?

Probably gloves and socks because they are quick to knit and have a practical use.

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to stitch along to?


Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I like to crochet, sew, cook, bake and going on walks in the country.
