Creative Living

I really don’t know how to start this post. First let me put your mind at rest. All is well at Triskele Towers. I’m working too¬† hard at the moment but that will come to a glorious end in a fortnight’s time. Commissions are being knitted, deadlines are hurtling towards me and general activity is […]

As you know, I freelance as a knitwear designer. I’ve been busy with boy sweaters of late but I’ve still found time for sample knitting which is just as well since I’ve been selling very regularly and the studio I freelance for has been asking for more. I normally have ideas posted on my studio […]

The Summer has zipped past and now Autumn has turned cold and wet. Meanwhile, I’ve been a busy designer. I had the usual Summer commissions that kept me out of trouble and there was a steady stream of samples that have been jet setting around Paris, New York and Florence. Some have not made it […]

Yesterday was a great day at work. I’m still cracking through with samples, (I’ve done nearly 5 weeks work in about 2) but I also came to some realisations. The most important one being that I don’t like “Hetherington”. Don’t get me wrong. I love the man it’s named for – he’s soon to be […]

Seeing Double

As you know, I’ve been working on a double knitting piece. This is the drawing that inspired it – There is a theme of spirals (I know. Shocking isn’t it. Me and spirals who’d have thought?!) and is an idea I’ve had in my head for a while. Now I’ve got the space to draw […]

A Day Off

The current samples have been sent to the studio and the latest commission was popped in the post this morning. I ran some errands and sent off some emails to tidy up some loose ends. With this natural break in work, I’ve decided to take the rest of the day and tomorrow off. Of course […]

What a Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday was quite the disastrous knitting day. No one died so, in the grand scheme of things, it could have been a lot worse but it felt pretty bad. First this weeks sample. Where to start? Well the first sample just didn’t quite work. The mechanics are great but the way it was being executed […]

Something Floral

I’ve finished all my jobs for the week and am looking forward to a whole day off tomorrow. I’ve got to do some small jobs for … well that’s news that can wait a little while longer yet, but tomorrow I will be knitting for my friend’s wedding. Remember I told you she asked me […]
