About

Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop. I have been knitting for over 30 years having taught myself when I was about 12 years old. I remember my very first project, a very long skinny garter stitch scarf made from various scraps of yarn I salvaged from the leftover stash that my mum had accumulated from her own projects. The scarf continued to grow until I had mastered the art of casting off.

It is this notion that inspires me to create simple but beautiful designs that use luxury yarns for others to make. I want to create luxury hand knits and kits to encourage people to take up the craft of knitting…

It is this notion that inspires me to create simple but beautiful designs that use luxury yarns for others to make. I want to create luxury hand knits and kits to encourage people to take up the craft of knitting and enjoy making something that they will be proud to wear or use.

Each design is simple to create to encourage you to complete the project, but also functional and appealing. I remember being frustrated when I was learning that the kits that were available to me were often for things I wasn't keen to keep once completed.

It is always so much more fun to make something you can't wait to wear or use and that is the essence of my work.

I hope you find something to inspire you in my shop and am always delighted to hear from you when you have completed a project!
