Hello my name is Adel, I’ve been interested in Art and Textiles from an early age and studied at Falmouth School of Arts. I then went on to work for a leading paper craft and cross stitch publishers and more recently for an multiple award winning greetings card designer and manufacturer. I have also designed and published several cross stitch designs with a major publisher, and designed and sold my own range of greetings cards.
I love to design knitting patterns and I am currently knitting up some baby hats. I am also in the process of making a variety of felt & crochet bunting. All soon for sale.
In 2009 I became a mum to a beautiful little boy and then in 2011 another little one, a wonderful baby girl. My boy is naturally curious about art and is already very interested in craft, with his sister quickly following.
I love to create and adapt. Have a look at my FREE & Buy Now creative patterns pages including Vintage Crochet/Knitting patterns and Creative Ideas & Unique Patterns. These pages are a work in progress and updated on a regular basis. All the patterns are in PDF format & easy to download. You will also find graph paper to download, to chart your chosen motifs to the correct size. I also have an Etsy shop AdelsKnitCraft – where I sell handmade & knitted items plus patterns. You can also see more patterns on my Ravelry page and see what I am currently knitting. You can also link up with me on Pinterest.
So along with art and craft, motherhood is quite a challenge, and I hope to connect with others sharing our interests and creative pursuits. I am inspired by a variety of sources, along with the children, they include nature and the way it inspires art.
Please see my gallery pages for lots of photos of my work.
