map-pin Surbiton, United Kingdom

I have been knitting for over 40 years and still enjoy learning new skills. I love to knit for friends and family but knits for myself usually take a back seat and much longer to complete. One intarsia jumper took me about 25 years to finish after it languished in a drawer whilst my children grew up! I enjoy all types of projects and I am also a keen quilter (though only at beginner level) and love to combine the two in blankets.
