I first learned to knit when I was six years old, and since then my knitting has taken me all sorts of places – from selling my own handknitted pieces at craft markets to making Aran sweaters for a Dublin-based fashion designer. I started teaching in 2018, and nothing makes me happier than watching my students go from taking their first tentative stitches to proudly holding up a successfully completed project.

So, why not see where your knitting journey takes you? Join me for Knitting for Beginners at Malahide Community School, starting this September… And in the meantime, visit me online for pattern ideas, a browse in my yarn store and a peek at what my current students are making!
