September has always been my favourite month.
I love it for so many reasons, it’s the promise of quiet swims when all the tourists have left, it’s the month I was born and it marks so many important beginnings in my life.
I left home in the September of 1984 to start a Foundation Course in Art & Design in Galway, the place where my life took off…
Now it’s when I buy new yarn and create new work to sell for the season ahead, I’m at my happiest in my studio at this time of year.
Here’s a new pile of lightweight scarves and striped mittens I just finished pressing.
