My Crafty Life, My Inspirations

My name is Judi. When I was younger I was always making things , I learnt to knit, crochet, sew, did cross stitch and tapestry and made beaded jewelry, but as I got older life and work got in the way , a career as a teacher and a family can get in the way of crafty activities.

A few years ago I went to The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, I saw a stall selling sock wool and patterns for knitting socks. The yarn was self patterning and I had never seen anything like it. I had to have a go. As the socks grew the pattern emerged, I had to keep knitting and watching the pattern develop. I finished the socks and although one of them had a squiffy heel I loved them.

Dozens of pairs of socks later and many other knits and sews created I am rarely without needles, knitting or sewing in my hands.

My sewing and knitting inspirations are Kaffe Fassett, Jane Brocket, Rowan yarns, Noro Yarn. I love colour and texture, the feel of wool and the way fabrics, put together can become greater than the sum of their parts. I love the way these combinations of yarn, patterns, fabrics and colours are endless and various.
