The hosiery company soon realised my skills lay in computing and so I was involved installing the 1st Apple computers, setting up spreadsheets, payroll and purchasing systems.
Seems I was destined to follow the IT route for the rest of my life, ending up as an IT manager at the local council.
My passion lay in laying down the overall design of systems, writing the computer code, testing & training. All good skills I coud bring to my knitting pattern designing.
Knitting desiging was something I started in my 50's after I set up my Etsy shop selling knitted accessories. I designed all the knits I made so as to overcome any copyright issues and so it became a natural progression to get the patterns properly written up, tested and tech editied. before publishing them on Raverly, Etsy and here on my web site.
My knitting skills are evolving, always happy to pick up and try challenging knitting techniques , developing my own way of using them in my patterns.
So what's on my web site? Its a place where you can see some of my finished knits which I still sell to you alongside my patterns , kits , yarn and needles. Most importantly though i'm building up my free resources, a place where you can learn the techniques I have learnt and that I have in some of my patterns.
