About Woollen Wave....
I live and knit by the sea in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
I love designing in knitting, especially the way you can build up complex patterns and shapes from the simple building blocks of knit and purl stitches. I really like experimenting with pattern and three-dimensional construction to create knitted pieces full of colour, texture and detail.
I hand knit and also knit using a small, hand-powered domestic knitting machine. I like to create lots of detail in my machine knit designs by using hand manipulation techniques alongside hand knit and crochet finishing. Find out more about how I design and make my knits here.
When not knitting, I'm usually to be found wandering along the local coastline with my dog, rummaging in rockpools, bird surveying, sea kayaking or kitchen gardening - themes which often creep into my knit designs.
