As I have done several swatches I felt it was time to start experimenting with full size, wearable knitwear! My next plan is to develop some of my intarsia designs into full garments!...
I now also have a facebook page! :)

Intarsia and Stripe Knit Scarves

I have decided to look back at my final major project and use the black and white checks to take forward into new items, as I feel that the bold graphic nature works quite well. Therefore I have recently been knitting up a scarf using 100% wool, knitted using intarsia and stripes! Hopefully, if I feel this is successful and then I can make more and play around with the colour schemes and layouts to make a collection of graphic winter scarves! Hope you like...

More Jewellery

Now that I am back home, as well as concentrating on knitwear, I also intend to keep making jewellery when I get the time! So here are some new items...


Work Experience

I have recently just come back home after doing a months work placement with a knitwear swatch design company in Nottingham, Cast Creations! While I was there I produced some intarsia garment swatches for them, for both womenswear and menswear. This was a really valuable experience as it showed me what its like to work in a busy, fast-paced studio, and I learnt much more about creating swatches! As well as this, I was also able to consider intarsia edsigns for menswear, which I've never done before, and then produce. I really enjoyed creating the menswear and was actually rather pleased with the outcomes!! Now I'm back home I am beginning to design some more intarsia womenswear swatches for the company, which will hopefully be successful!
I'm going to be looking at argyle patterns for inspiration.. like some of the interesting designs below, by various designers!!

When I'm not busy designing knits I also love making jewellery, so since I'm now a graduate and have just got the pressure of the New Designers exhibition out of the way, I thought I'd get back to it!!...
I'm currently trying to set up a shop on Etsy, so if your interested please have a browse!!
