Yarn has been my hobby for most of my life, ever since I sat under our fig tree in Tuscany with my grandmother and her friends when I was 5 years old.
Then, after working as an interior designer for over 25 years and bringing up four children, I wanted a new challenge because I always dreamt to turn my hobby into my dream job.
I believe that no matter what age you are it is all about living bravely and fully and using your life experiences as your most powerful tool to live your dreams.
None of this could have been possible without the relentless support of my family and the confidence they instilled in me to go forward.
So this Shawl is dedicated to my family and especially to my daughter Valentina, as she starts her first ‘grown-up’ job in London and we all miss her very much.
This has been a team effort, so special thanks go to Poppy’s (poppys-holmfirth.com) the supplier of the yarn and the product photography, Louise Cantwell photography, Francesca, for modelling and graphics and, last but not least, two special ladies, Kathryn Middleton and Janet Donaldson. They tested and amended the pattern, making several versions in different colourways in the process!
