I have been knitting and dabbling in various hobbies for as long as I can remember, and love experimenting with different types of yarn. My passion is for designing and knitting baby and childrens patterns - just love to create something new.
I am the designer, graphic artist / desktop publisher, (this is what I did as my day job) writer / editor and photographer of OGE Knitwear Designs.
My absolute ultimate would be to publish a few books, and also have my own brand of yarn, I adore Debbie Bliss yarn, especially Cashmerino, gives such great stitch definition.
I hope that I have produced some patterns that may inspire the young (and old) to knit !! Generally my patterns are for the beginner, I have tried to keep them simple, modern and practical, with a twist of individuality.
I hope you enjoy my designs, your feedback is most welcome!!

These Nordic inspired patterned baubles are relatively simple to knit up and will look wonderful on your tree, or as a last minute Christmas gift to add to that bottle of wine......, or as a centre piece for your Christmas table setting!!
You will need 1 ball of each colour of 4ply cotton, or whatever you have in your stash.
Plastic baubles approx. 20cm in circumference, or Styrofoam balls.
If preferred you could stuff the bauble with polyester batting or wool stuffing, also some ribbon or string to hang.
1 set of double pointed needles. Size 2.750mm, US 2, UK12.
