As a life long knitter and crafter, taught to knit by my Grandma at the age of 3, I have always been surrounded by yarn and fabric. This love of craft has stayed with me throughout the years, always a constant hobby and sometime profession - I even owned a bricks and mortar yarn store some years ago!

At one time I very much classed myself as a 'cat person' (we have two very large cats Maurice and Doris), however my love of dogs began in 2011 when we met our first beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Elsie. Lois joined us in November 2018 and turned our world upside down - seemingly literally at times! She is an exceptional ball of energy and wit and quickly grew into the most stunning puppy. In December 2019 we added to our family, in the form of a Labradoodle, Marjorie. She is a really lovely dog, loyal and always smiling. 

Knit 9 began at the end of 2018, as a response to people asking where I had bought the snoods I made for Lois. At the end of 2019, I made the decision to leave my ‘day’ job and focus solely on Knit 9 and now work full time in the business. My years of crafting experience are brought to each design and each piece is carefully and lovingly made, solely by me!

Knit 9 is situated in North Bedfordshire, UK. The past year has seen us having to regularly pause orders due to high demand and as a result, we will be introducing an exciting new ready-to-ship range soon, with the same attention to detail and quality as our handmade items.

Thanks for stopping by and please don't hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions, or would like to discuss bespoke commissions.
