I have been able to knit for as long as I can remember. Over the last few years I have enjoyed the huge increase in knitting and the increasing variety of materials which are available to try out, including bamboo, recycled materials and the wide range of animal hair.
I enjoy skill sharing with knitting returners and experts both in classes and knitting groups.
Never one to follow a prescriptive pattern slavishly I often find myself OFF PATTERN, experimenting with stitches and texture. This is how this jacket was born, it just developed off the needles!! The beads and fastenings found in a crazy shop in Barcelona just cried out to be on this jacket.
