About Me

My photo
I am a gypsy! having been born and raised in Yorkshire, England I left at 21 and lived in many places including Germany for 5 years. This resulted in my always striving to move on to the next level of my life. The one thing that remained constant is my need to create. Eventually I went back to university and graduated with a first class honours degree in fashion and textiles majoring in knitwear design. I am now back in Yorkshire and a professional in-house hand knit designer for a well known UK pattern and yarn company.

(OK so yeah I know it's been a while! So after a good long rest following the knit & stitch shows I have been busy on the commissions which I gained from those shows...then everything changed! I finally managed to get the job I worked so hard for as a in-house hand knit designer for Sirdar Spinning, so me & mine upped sticks and moved up to Yorkshire).

New beginnings..New year...New house equals new knitted soft furnishings
