About thistledown&HOPE

thistledown&HOPE

“Beautiful, knitted, everyday things” " Knitting practical pretty"

Hand knitted solutions to everyday needs are inspired by the flowers in my garden and the colours of the coastal Suffolk village where I live. The time forgotten 'make-do-and-mend' approach shapes my designs for a simpler life.

My Nanna taught me to knit on needles when I was still in primary school, and I owned my first sewing machine before I was 10 years old. These foundations took me on a path to a BSc(Hons) in Textile and Knitwear Technology.

So is my house full of my creations? Well, yes it is. It's what makes it home.

Every day I remind myself that; Everything can be improved with a knitted flower, a cup of tea and a large slice of carrot cake!

If you want to read more about why I knit what I knit, then pop over to my BLOG which reveals the working of my mind and fingers;
