Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved knitting, but haven’t done it for so long. Things like work, running a business, bringing up a family have all meant that knitting, for me, was put on a back burner. I’ve tried it all in the past; hand knitting, crochet, and for a couple of years had a knitting machine (my family will vouch for some of the hideous jumpers I made them wear!), but I absolutely loved the creativity, and feeling of accomplishment it gave me.
I saw some pieces recently on Instagram that a friend of mine had made. I was amazed to discover that she’s self taught and had only taken up knitting 12 months ago! The knit was so even and some of the pieces were made using very complicated stitch, which normally takes years to master! Victoria Kenny is an absolute natural, and her creations are more like works of art.
When I caught up with Victoria, she told me that as well her shop on Etsy, she knits to order. Any design can be considered, if you can’t see the design you want, then just get in touch as she can produce most knitted items. Anything you are looking for can be discussed, or if you have ideas on colours, stitches etc. just get in touch via her Etsy shop or Instagram.
Most of the pieces currently on display are unique designs. I love ‘Max the Alien‘!
