About

Hi there
A little bit about me...... I studied knitwear design at art school in Brighton. I had the most wonderful time spending every day in such a creative environment.
I have worked as a freelance knitwear designer in the fashion industry for the last 20+ years designing for both designer labels and high street stores. I have loved every minute of it.
I also had a dream to set up my own baby and childrens knitwear label. I followed my dream and rocket clothing company ltd was launched back in 1995. I have run rocket clothing alongside my freelance design work for most of my career.
My rocket collection has sold to adorable childrens boutiques and lovely gift stores across the UK, Europe, and the US.
It was a very exciting day when Harrods Knightsbridge agreed to sell my knits.
I have also had lots of fun selling my rocket knits…

I have also had lots of fun selling my rocket knits at arts markets and craft fairs across the UK. I have met some wonderful and interesting people along the way.

I have spent most of my life living in Wimbledon London, but now live in Oxfordshire with my lovely partner and my two wonderful children.
I now want to be able to balance my work and home life. Over the last 16 years I have lived and breathed rocket and loved every minute of it. I have worked long hours designing my knits, working with a wonderful team of outworkers, and supplying shops and individual customers with my rocket knits. Now that I have my lovely young family I want to also enjoy family life by spending lots of quality time with them. Rocket is therefore now evolving into a family friendly venture. My knitting patterns have been selling on etsy as well as some other large arts and crafts sites over the last few years. Due to popular demand, I have now also launched my own website www.rocketknits.com

I hope you enjoy looking my designs

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon........as I never stop designing you will see new patterns appearing regularly.
