Christine and Tess (sisters) – one lifelong knitter (Chris) and one dodger (Tess)

The happiest thing I’ve ever knitted is a blanket for my granddaughter with sheep on it. Another sister showed me the pattern. She’s a mid-wife and goes in a lot of people’s houses so sees all these blankets and hand-knitted garments. It’s amazing what’s out there now.

Making my own patterns and working with unusual fibres is what excites me. I like textural design: being able to make a texture on the fabric as you’re knitting it, using things like tuck and slip; or it might be about hand manipulation or short row shaping to change the shape of the fabric.
