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 […]

Building The Perfect Man

I’m hunting for a man. Panic not, I’m still happily married but I’m hunting for is a particular type of man. I’m researching at the moment and exploring the kind of man I’m designing for. This started when I was doing my Final Major Project at Uni and was an opportunity to create 3 different […]

Boy and I are currently house-sitting for his mum. I love being here because I get to play in a fabulous garden. I always find it inspiring to wander around and see what I notice. Would you like to come with me? Everywhere are lines and shapes that lead me to knitting. I see areas […]

Holiday Round-Up

I’m back at work tomorrow and looking forward to it. I’ve enjoyed my rest but I’m bursting with ideas for more samples. For some reason I’m on cable kick mixed with … unconventional construction which is  really exciting. It’s a great feeling to be going back to work with a definite idea. I don’t feel […]

I’m sure you’re tired of hearing the words “I’ve been working on samples” because you know I can’t share pictures. However, at the moment, I’ve been doing a fair amount of sample knitting. Partly because I’m planning a holiday in March but also because I’ve been working with some fabulous inspiration and that I can share […]

Reading Books & Folding Pages

The current batch of samples were posted off on Thursday and, quite amazingly for a parcel sent 1st class via Royal Mail, arrived at the studio on Friday. I was nervous as I waited for Emily the boss’s response but she liked them! You’d think I’d be used to this process by now but every […]
