On Etsy since 2009

Hi, I'm Elaine and I live part of the time in a small village on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, and part time in a tiny hamlet in rural France.

A lot of my influence comes from the countryside and architecture around me. I love the colours and shapes I see in my surroundings and try to use them when designing my products.

I learnt to knit when I was 4 years old and as well as knitting for family and friends I knit for designer Sasha Kagan.

It took me much longer to master crochet. The emergence of mandalas and gorgeous cotton yarns encouraged me to pick up a hook and give it another go about 4 years ago. I found it so difficult to work out where the 1st stitch of a row or round was - then I tried using stitch markers and haven't looked back.

I made my first stitch markers about 10 years ago. I bought a sock knitting kit and it came with a couple of very basic stitch markers. In my usual fashion I thought "I could make prettier stitch markers". So armed with some pretty beads, wire and tools my first stitch markers were created.
