Thistle Glen Designs

Hello - my name is Ann and I live in Belfast, N Ireland with my husband, son and daughter.

I returned to knitting in 2002 and during a period of prolonged illness, I found great comfort in the clicking of the needles! It was during that time that I taught myself many new skills and found the wonderful online knitting community.

After knitting many, many socks, I decide to make up my own design, not intending it to be for anyone other than myself. The response from so many lovely people on here, however, was “write up the pattern and publish it” … So with a lot of encouragement, I finally published my first pattern late 2018. Every little heart added to my patterns… makes my heart leap!

I love to design socks that are interesting to knit but also accessible to any knitter. My dream is to design a shawl in the nearer future.

Thank you for looking at my patterns. I hope you find something you like and enjoy to knit.
