Best knitting memory: My grandmother, Nana May, teaching me to crochet granny squares.

Favourite gift to knit for others: A lovely warm sweater.

Favourite Let’s Knit pattern: Miriam, issue 27, February 2010 (above). The first thing I ever knitted, when I was an art student, was a rainbow striped cardigan and this pattern can be made with all kinds of double-knitting oddments and scraps.
