I'm a knitter from the Aran Islands, combining traditional elements of Aran knitting (e.g. cables, lattice work) with more modern techniques, such as seamless knitting, to create my own original designs.
I first learnt to knit when I was about 6, and, at school, we moved on to Aran knitting pretty quickly! I kept knitting over the years, as a hobby, and also started knitting some items for my cousin to sell on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands. And then came the thought: wouldn't it be nice if people could buy genuine Aran knits without having to come all the way out here?! So I started making some items which would be nice and light and not cost too much to post (keeping costs down for my customers : ))
I'm always happy to hear from you if you have any queries about my shop!
Le gach beannacht/With best wishes,
