Heritage handknits ...
... and crochet too.
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, Fishermen's Ganseys, Sanquhar designs, and socks of all kinds.

But it isn't only traditional knits that I design. I also work for many of the current knitting magazines and yarn suppliers. The two images that you see above were designed for Artesano
I also crochet and am particularly interested in Filet lace, traditionally used in canal crochet and Romany caravans.
