Alison approaches knitting as a way of ‘building’ garments, usually made all in one piece. She dyes her yarns to produce special effects such as tie-dyeing to create pattern, as well as a rich range of colours, often looking to colours and textures in landscape and gardens for ideas.
She is fascinated by the flexibility of the knitting technique, using stitches to shape her garments, which are constructed in many different ways that influence the designs.
Showing her work in galleries and at fairs, she has found that direct contact with her customers has been extremely helpful and inspiring in designing pieces that are a pleasure to wear for a diversity of people!
Pieces can be made to order in different sizes and colours.
