Why I love to design knitting and crochet patterns and use colourful , organic wool in my knitted items such as onesies and beanies

Hi I'm Meg . My shop derived its name from my childhood nickname " Tig " . Knitting has been a part of me since my childhood too when I used to pretend to knit while I was listening to Kindergarten of the Air . I guess that the lack of television also played a part in the fact that my mum ( Audrey ) taught me and my three sisters to knit so that we'd all knitted ourselves a jumper by the time we were ten . My passion for handmade continued to be a major part of my life as I sewed and knitted most of my own and my children's clothes .

I still have lots of knitting pattern books from the seventies and my vintage collection has grown since I retired from secondary teaching four years ago .

Because I had a gap in my teaching career while my family was young , I've never had a gap in creating knitwear for our family of four children as I was able to knit while they played . I've now been knitting for them and their partners and our seven ( soon to be eight ) grandchildren . You'll see most of them in my product shots and I'm also grateful to the ones who've provided behind the scenes social media suggestions , tech support , photos , editing advice and layout assistance .

You’ll find most of my knitting and crochet patterns here on Etsy . A sustainable alpaca mill in Orange NSW ( Adagio Mills ) have published my first commercial patterns for The Jarrah Vest and The Izzy Lou Poncho .

I've sourced other yarns which also use ethical , sustainable , environmentally friendly practices in their production for my new rompers and new ( unlisted ) cable beanies .

This year I designed my first knitted beanie pattern for a knitted beanie and my first tea cosie this year .

Selling online is precisely what I love to do . It connects me with a community of makers who are all different ages , make different things and have different ideas - it's a place where age doesn't matter as the passion for handmade is what makes us the same . I love taking my flatlay photos of my products for my shop , meeting makers online and buying handmade for my family online .

One thing I don't need is a designated studio as knitting and crocheting are so portable - every day is World Knit in Public Day for me as you'll see in the photos that I often knit outdoors around Dalmeny on the South Coast of NSW where I live .

You'll also notice that I love colour and that I've chosen names from past and present family members for my current creations . Without Izzy Lou ( my paternal grandmother) and Audrey May (my mother ) I wouldn't have my skills to make handmade , my strong feminist ideals or my love of reading Australian authors such as Thea Astley . I hope that I can pass on my knitting skills to my grandchildren so that they can share my passion .
I attribute a lot of my success on Etsy to a great team called Australian Wandarrah whose members are supportive and full of sound advice here and on Instagram. (www.instagram.com/tigstogs).

Happy customers like Trudie are also very important.
"Hi Meg,
Thank you so much for the prompt shipping, the messages and of course the stunning cowl!! I adore it!!!
I loved how you packaged it it. It was such a treat to open it up and see just how gorgeous it is. I am thrilled to bits :)
Thank you so much
Trudie :)"

I also love having repeat customers because I know they love their warm winter woolies from me at TigsTogs. I'd love to hear from you if you are interested in something here in my shop.
Thanks for having a look around,
Meg

    I'm passionate about colour and good quality yarn so I try to incorporate these elements into my designs. I knit or crochet everything in my shop myself.
