I have been a passionate knitter for many years. Right through the 80’s, I knitted Patricia Roberts patterns and then started knitting for my son and daughter. Years later, I began to design my own patterns inspired by Fair Isle yoke and traditional patterns. I loved the process of blending colours. Now, I’m on a different journey – knitting lace – not by hand but by machine taking inspiration from my visits to Shetland and latterly from looking at the lace archive at Nottingham Trent University. I’m interested in the stories that I see in the palimpsest of life (something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form)
I will make and design bespoke, Shetland Lace inspired, layered, knitted clothes for women.
