Ever since I could hold a pair of knitting needles I have loved knitting. I created Valerian Designs to share this relaxing, therapeutic craft. Inspired by classic designs and traditional stitching techniques I create simple, patterns for elegant accessories using silk and alpaca. I also love making quirky tea cosies and simple toys. My favourite thing is creating multi-functional items with an element of surprise. I also love the challenge of creating patterns for commissions. For more details see
