A little background...

I have always been creative. As a child, I drew pictures constantly. As a teenager, I took photos. As a young adult I majored in photography and then switched to graphic design. I found my digital passion in type design and completed the MA in Typeface Design at the University of Reading in the UK.

After many years of school and computers I needed something a bit more hands on. I took up knitting and fell in love with it. This led to spinning, dyeing and processing wool straight from the farmer.

I hope you enjoy the items in my shop as much as I have enjoyed making them.
