Knitables is dedicated to my brave and inspirational mum-in-law Linda, who during her 13 year battle with cancer, raised thousands of pounds for charity by knitting scarves and toys. It was Linda who first encouraged me to design my own range of knitted toys, as she was constantly looking for new things to knit and was always so impressed with my designs and ideas. Sadly, she is no longer with us, but our memories of her will live on forever.

Knitables really is a family run project. My husband designs and builds my websites, my children, Thomas and Hannah, provide the inspiration with their suggestions as what to design next. Although a little early to say, it looks as though Thomas is going to follow in his fathers footsteps and Hannah is showing a bit of talent for all things crafty!
