I'm a London based knitting designer focusing on making fun and unique gift ideas, like animal hot water bottle covers, puppets and soft toys. It's early days with my company, but I really want to branch out and keep on going until I can escape from the tedium of the day job. So far I've had a great response and now it's just about fitting in more designing around the 9-5...
