Welcome !

You've entered my world through Instagram

Hi from Sandra, the designer and creator at The Feminine Touch Designs. 

I have only been seriously in the knitting world for the last 7 years and starting designing 4 years ago, having my 1st patterns published in a UK knitting magazine just 3 years ago! So I'm just learning! taking my inspiration from you and other knitters who post glorious photos on Instagram, so thank you.

 As I am learning new techniques,  I am bringing together information I find on the internet that helped me along my way. Where I can I'm adding in my own learning, tips & tutorials, so you can learn new techniques along with me.

Find me and my patterns on Ravelry here. I write about my designing antics here in my 'designing blog'.  Please leave me some comments I would love to hear from you.

Woop! I'm now officially a woolly event organiser. Alongside Gill we organise the "Wild About Wool" events here in Slaithwaite.


Where I can I make available my knitted designs as knitting kits so that you don't have to work out what yarn works well with the pattern you desire. I work in collaboration with my yarn supplier "Spectrum yarns" just 5 minutes walk away and get my undyed yarns from a neighbouring town in Yorkshire. You can see some of my kits above. More in store.

I also supply some of my patterns as freebies. Tried and tested many times they are bug free :)   

I sell my finished knits on line via my web site and Etsy shop as well as in The Gallery in Slaithwaite. All are professionally knit to a high standard using quality yarns usually to my own designs. This is how I practise stitch techniques and knitting designs but I love working with gorgeous yarns so this is all a joy. Have fun browsing! See anything you like that needs tweaking for you, just let me know
