Warm greetings from the “Sheep Islands”

Hello, my name is Randi Hjelm Debes.

It all started in 2016. I was unemployed and my young daughter was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1. After her diagnosis, I became my daughters caretaker for quite some time.

While staying home, I reflected about my life and this: What am I really good at? I remember my grandma always said to me, before she passed away: “Use your talents, do not let them go to waste”.

I thought to myself: I love to draw (even my math books were full of colours) and I love to knit. If I can combine my love of drawing and knitting, it would be perfect! And suddenly it just made sense: Of course, knitwear designer is what I will become!
My first sweater design was the Bohéme sweater from 2017, and since then, I have been on a very exciting journey that is Faroeknit.

I live and breathe knitting and designing. I learned the art of knitting from my mom and grandma, and I also serial read all the knitting books I can find.

Other interests: I love to read (I have a BSc in Library- and Information Science) and I love to spend time outdoors in our quirky, beautiful, rustic and windswept islands.
