Story behind this design
Tak Dee Sock (take your knitting) design is inspired by my late granny who was rarely without her makkin (knitting) I was her 29th grand bairn and I got one of her handmade fair isle jumpers, the pattern can be seen in the background of this design. When her sight started to deteriorate and she could no longer do fair isle patterns at 101yrs old she still managed to hand knit socks for her ever growing family. My memories of Granny are of her sitting quite composed before the fire makin apa her sock while watching coronation street apa tv.

Whalsay born designer who shares her treasured memories and stories through illustrated designs. Julie’s designs are mostly Shetland themed and strongly influenced by our local heritage of fishing, crofting and knitware, she hand draws her own fair isle patterns which is based on a treasured jumper heirloom. Each of Julie’s designs have their own nostalgic story to be shared in your home.
