Knitables is dedicated to my brave and inspirational mum-in-law Linda, who during her 13 year battle with cancer, raised thousands of pounds for charity by knitting scarves and toys. It was Linda who first encouraged me to design my own range of knitted toys, as she was constantly looking for new things to knit and was always so impressed with my designs and ideas.
