The story in the family is that I started to knit when a toddler. My grandmother got fed up with me leaning over the arm of her chair watching her knit. She gave me wool and needles and told me to do my own. I did. Later on, I kept myself in clothes through school by knitting arans for friends, and when ill health forced me to stop teaching when I was 40, I did what my forebears would have done – I turned to knitting again. Now, from my house on the island of Flotta in the middle of Scapa Flow in Orkney, Scotland, I design and knit, write and research, specialising in designs bringing the patterns of the Northern Isles to a new audience. Almost all the time, I will have three projects on the go – one gansey, one piece of lace and one Fair Isle – and other ideas sketched out in my head and on paper. For relaxation I stay with fibre, spinning and dyeing, and there is always a camera in my pocket. There is usually an audio book on the player while I knit, and my rescue Scottie will be at my feet waiting for the next walk.
