This mat is knitted first in pure wool and then felted in an ordinary washing machine. Don't worry! My pattern includes detailed instructions for felting your project.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn, I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles! I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company and surrounded by colourful yarn, whilst my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas. My inspiration comes with the changing seasons and celebrations which form the backdrop of our lives. In between creating new dolls and teddy bears I have created patterns for Hachette Press which were published in "The Art of Knitting" magazine, worked with retail firms to create knitting kits. And I’m fortunate enough to work with Hoooked creating patterns with their fantastic eco-friendly yarns.
