Individual knitwear created especially for you

Knitting is an important part of our cultural history and I do my best to preserve and promote these long-established techniques. Many of my designs are based on the timeless traditional knits of the British Isles but with a modern twist to suit the current style. My favourite pieces are Fair Isle, Aran, Shetland Lace, Sanquhar and Fishermen’s Ganseys.

I am involved with the Sheringham Museum in promoting the ganseys of East Anglia and have designed gansey inspired kits to be sold in their shop. They also sell a copy of my book Stitch in Time, Heirloom Knitting Skills, which contains several stitch patterns for fisherman’s jumpers, as well as patterns to create other items inspired by these stitches.

I also crochet and while I specialise in filet designs, such as those used in narrowboats and gypsy caravans, I have made crochet accessories and wedding dresses.
