Knitting has always been a part of my life. I learnt at a young age and have always enjoyed the relaxing benefits of knitting. In my twenties I began to knit challenging patterns and discovered more about the potential of knitting, this naturally led me to an interest in design. I have designed for various UK magazines, for yarn companies and self-published patterns.

As a designer I particularly like to make toys and accessories with stranded colourwork patterns.  

Working on a self-published collection of patterns led me to discover Faroese yarn. I was looking for a range of natural undyed shades and found the most beautiful range offered by The Island Wool Company, alongside some very lovely dyed shades. The yarn was perfect for the projects and I’m certain to come back to this lovely yarn in future.
