I love the way some pieces of fabric drape and behave when they are mid-construction, and seem to take on a life of their own. This piece will become a patchwork shawl, when fully grown…

Taking ‘time out’ this month to knit a cardigan to welcome young Ophelia into the family – and in the process, rediscovering the joys of hand knitting…

Just one of my many experiments of the moment, combining 2 layers of knitting – one knitted from bottom to top and the other from side to side…

And so, another New Year and so many new possibilities to explore! I just love to see the knitting needles and daffodils in my studio talking to each other – plus the long, low winter light creeping across my yarn ‘stash’. It’s going to be a great year…

This was the favourite ‘seasonal’ garment in my display at this year’s Horsham ‘Contemporary Art Fair’. For the 1st time, I’ve introduced a ‘fake fur’ thread into the fabric of my classic ‘Evolution’ coat. The drape of this garment on the body is just SO luxurious…
