Find out more about JenKnits…
Jen is a Derby based knitter, here she tells us about JenKnits.
“I am a Derby based knitter, passionate about making beautiful and useful things. I learnt to knit at the age of 21 and haven’t been far from a pair of knitting needles since!
With an emphasis on the joy of the creative process, I work with colour and texture and aim to make items which put smiles on faces.
Making a wide variety of garments, I mainly focus on socks with a view to create pairs as individual as the wearer – no two garments are the same.
Remnants of yarn are used to create smaller items and embellishments; I try to make sure that nothing gets wasted.”
