Travel-Inspired Handmade Knitwear, Accessories, and Knitting and Crochet Patterns. I design and create handmade knitwear and knitting patterns which are inspired by my travels- by photographs, memories, recipes, food, nature, sights, sounds, music, people, art, architecture, design and culture. My designs are created entirely by me, fully handmade and are for men, women and teens. I have been crafting for over 35 years, having learnt to knit from one grandmother and to crochet from the other. I have also studied for a degree in Fine Art and Design, and have been writing knitting and crochet patterns for over 15 years.
