Honestly I don't know anyone who has knitted more than me. I have knitted sweaters, scarfs, hats, gloves, blankets, baby layettes, dog coats, slippers, poppy's, in fact anything that can be knitted i'm sure I have done. I have been knitting for 50 years so have done enough to fill a room. When I was in art class I displayed about a dozen of my knitted handbags. I met a woman whose son had a tailor's business in Saville Row. She was so impressed with my work that she put me in touch with him. Patrick Grant then asked me to knit a hat, scarf and gloves for a client.

Where you'll be

I do all of my knitting indoors but I would take you to Fort Kinnaird where we would find Hobbycraft for your materials. If you have difficulty finding my house I can meet you at the end of the road.
