She learned her craft at around 8 years old at the same time as her mother was rediscovering knitting and the lady at her local yarn store put her straight on to DPNs to knit a pair of mittens. At 11 she learned Fair Isle knitting which has been a favourite technique ever since.
Tanis is at the forefront of American knitting and so we were thrilled that such a high profile designer agreed to work with us. She is brilliant at accessories and has a love for hats especially with a knitted in hem!
We contacted Tanis in the very early stages and she immediately said yes. She is so enthusiastic about Yarn Stories: “It was interesting to get bits and pieces of information, then finally to get my hands on some amazing Yarn!” she enthuses.
