I learned to knit as a young child, and before I came to Ravelry I wasn’t really aware of the fact that inventing your own projects = designing ;)
I am stubborn and nitpicking about fashion, that’s why I often adapt existing designs or create my own projects.
My favourite knitting projects are sweaters/tops and gloves. I am keen on using organic / fair trade / rare breeds / locally produced yarns, although I admit I’m not totally consistent about this. My all-time favourite yarn is Shetland wool.
I am currently (= summer of 2013) in the process of re-writing most of my patterns and I also want to add several new ones which are written to a more professional standard. I’m really in two minds about the whole pattern business, as I prefer to teach people to design their own projects, but I’m trying to come up with a concept that will offer something for everyone. So please bear with me for a while! There will probably be some new things here in autumn :)
Some of my older free patterns might look a bit crappy, but hopefully they are error free and comprehensible. The patterns for sale have been tech edited and test knitted. If you encounter a problem with any of the patterns, don’t hesitate to contact me for help.
