Timatanga (beginning)

Knitting became a household obsession. It started with te whānau, my brother was knitting a beautiful blanket for his girlfriend and māmā was crocheting bags for other whānau members. I so badly wanted to make something so I started to learn from them.

The obsession caught on quick and I would spend every spare minute knitting. One of my nearest and dearest trusted me to make her a jumper (having never attempted one) and that was the beginning of me making jumpers for my friends. And then friends of friends. Now, it's for everyone and anyone.

I love knitting for people, sharing my creations with them and the joy it brings, and the joy I get from this. It is one of my most favourite things to do for that reason. This collection is for you all to enjoy, my whānau and I have loved creating these pieces for you. Ngā mihi nui tatou.
