I’m a wife, mum to two young girls (and two guinea pigs), a volunteer treasurer and serve the public four days a week. Knitting and designing is my favourite thing to do in my downtime - when I get some! I like to focus on practical garments and seamless construction. I love exploring interesting knitting techniques, construction and colour plays. And I have very little self-control in yarn shops.
