I enjoy using a knitting machine to make the clothes I design, and have been a knitwear designer for 40 years. Most, but not all, of my work is with wool from my own sheep. The sheep flock started when I learned to spin and was then told that it wasn’t possible to use hand-spun wool on a knitting machine. Oh, really!

My favourite to spin is a mix of all the colours my sheep produce, all carded together, and then it spins ‘tweed’!

I love my sheep and my dog, a ‘rescue’ collie, and where I live in the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales. No neighbours, no mobile signal, very peaceful and beautiful.
