I'm a crochet and knitwear designer specialising in small accessories and homewares. I mostly design for UK magazines and I have published several books including The Woman's Weekly Guide to Crochet and Crochet; Learn It, Love It. I fell into designing for a living after taking a career break, ended up working in a yarn shop and began submitting designs for publication. I sold my first designs in the school playground as a teenager in the 70's to feed my vinyl habit!!!
