I have been knitting for about 5 or so years now. I come from a long line of fabric and yarn artists. My grandmother was a seamstress, knitter, weaver, and crocheter, my mom followed suit and now all I have left to learn is weaving. Recently a friend gave me Barbara Walker’s 1st and 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns and I am inspired to create some of my own patterns. I have knitted just about every type of garment there is but my first love is knitting socks. They are intricate, quick and elegant to wear. I recently finished my first design, Cable and Seed Sock, I am sure it will have its share of errata…so please tell me how I can improve my directions! I am an intuitive knitter, meaning I rarely follow directions, so writing directions is kind of paradoxical 🙂
I saw your designs on Ravelry and was interested to see that you make up your own designs as I’m looking for new freelance knit designers.
I run a small knit swatch studio in London estalished in 1989, representing over 20 selected freelance hand and machine knit designers who create their own original designs to sell through our agency.
I wondered whether you’d be interested in the possibility of creating small garment shaped original pieces to try and sell through our agency? It sounds like you are very busy so if it’s not suitable for you, could you suggest any other talented and inventive hand or machine knit designers who can create their own patterns that I could contact? Or any good blogs/knitting groups?
If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com with a few more low res j-pegs of your work if possible,
I’m just about to cast on for your Branching Off socks, and I think they are absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to see what other patterns you come up with!
