Recently I completed my first wholesale order for Jane Crowfoot, she’s currently selling some of my yarn bowls which is one of the reasons why I don’t currently have any in stock!
Jane studied textile design at Winchester School of Art specialising in knitting and has since worked alongside Rowan yarns and Debbie Bliss. She currently works as a mobile consultant and tutor giving knitting and crochet workshops.
You can also find her in the monthly master class column in ‘The Knitter’ magazine along with her two published books ‘Finishing Techniques for Handknitters’ and ‘Two stitch Knits’.
Part of the reason why my yarn bowls have changed so much is thanks to Jane, her wholesale order prompted me to make 12 in around 3 months.
Generally with my work I set out to make various pieces but never the same thing in two sessions running. With Jane’s request I spent two months working solely on yarn bowls and of course this prompted changes in their overall design.
