I have vivid memories of learning to knit from my mother, grandmother and nanny, and this link to the past has been a passion for years now. This culminated in the pieces influenced by handcraft traditions I designed, patterned and created for my F/W-2011 collection “Traces of Thread”. I work predominantly with handknitting, enjoying traditional stranded colorwork, lace, and cable knitting. Machine knitting is something I’ve also tried, enjoyed, and understood.

From 2010 I’ve designed and released handknitting patterns on Ravelry under the name indigorchid design.
