Lucy Collyer

Fibre enthusiast, contemporary knitting and crochet addict. I dye my own yarn and create my own designs, never to be seen without a hook or needles!
Crocheting and knitting for several years, very much inspired by the retro style of the 1960/70’s. Love the midcentury modern style of decor, crochet and knitting which fits in very well with the current trends.

Knitting and crochet can be described as ‘Yoga for the mind’, taking time for yourself to craft is fantastic therapy and rather addictive!
