I am an independent designer living and working in beautiful Melbourne, Australia. Although I do a lot of jewellery design, and work with fabric, there is a very special place in my heart for knitting and crochet! I love to knit and crochet and always have several projects on the go at once. It's my way to relax and unwind at the end of the day, and passes the time on long train journeys.
