I’m a huge fan of knitting and textiles, mostly because I’m happiest when I’m warm. Knitting with a nice wooly wool, rewatching a TV programme I know and love with a hot chocolate/rum and ginger beer (weather dependent) in hand is pure delight.

I love earthy colours, locally sourced yarn, cables, colour work and geometric/diagonal details. If there were more hours in the day I’d make way more jumpers.
