I’ve always seen my mom knitting and it’s from her that I learned the basics of knitting.
After a while without touching a needle, I started knitting again when my first child arrived, then I discovered, thanks to the internet and Ravelry, the multiple possibilities of making knitting more pleasant. I like to play with geometry, textured stitches and colors to create modern models, pleasant to knit and easy to wear. I want to share the well-being that brings a moment in the company of its needles by offering contemporary and well explained models.
English fibre artist known for her innovative knitwear and felting designs, can be found in all the most popular British / American fibre magazines and journals. She uses felt, knitting and embroidery to create very unique ‘one of a kind’ pieces. Chrissie is a writer with ten published titles to date on knitting, crochet, wire jewellery and felting. Her functional fashion accessories fuse her distinctive style with fine design techniques which ensure they are unique. She cannot remember a time before fibre, a time when yarn did not feature in her life. Her inspiration is always nature and certain architecture that grasps her attention as she travels. www.chrissieday.co.uk
