My studio is full of colour: yarn dyeing, knitting in progress, books, and knitwear for sale in wool and in hemp. Ideas for colours and textures often come from the surrounding garden and landscape, and I have a range of designs to suit different individuals.
I design jackets, jumpers, waistcoats and hats, with interest in structure and drape, as well as colour and texture.
My interest in hand knitting includes running workshops in the UK and abroad, part time teaching at West Dean College, and a fourth book on design for knitting will be published in 2015.
