(My inherited knitting equipment)
......It didn't take long for me to get on the design wagon, by age 10 I had designed my own intarsia 'Danger mouse' scarf as a gift for my cousin (there was always knitting going on in our house with my Grandma, my mum , sister and me), after college I begun taking on commission work from local yarn shops before I moved to Germany. This is where I really got into knit in a big way, I worked in a knitting and craft shop and loved every minute of it. I designed, taught and took on commissions, sometimes altering patterns to specific needs. I also sold some of my other arts and crafts......when I had to leave, due to a military posting I never found another job like it....so when it came to 2004 and I saw an advert in the local paper for a job as a knitwear designer at Sirdar yarns, I knew I needed that degree.
