I am a graphic designer with a weakness for everything that's handmade, especially textile- and yarnrelated. I have always been designing all kinds of things : clothes, knitwear, small furniture ... I like to experiment with shapes and textures, always searching for a different approach of constructing a garment. What appeals to me most is using common stitches (knit and purl) and simple, well-thought, clean shapes to make up a design. Most of my patterns are written with charts, illustrations and diagrams (graphics, he he ;).
