  • About Renée, aka EastLondonKnit:

    After studying fashion design with knitwear at Central Saint Martins college, I began to hoard yarn and a range of knitting machines. I love textiles and technical challenge of knitting. There is real joy in producing something both useful and beautiful.

    I am constantly creating new patterns and combinations of texture and colour and spend as much time as I can hand knitting. I love to see new knitters taking to the needles and teach a range of knitting classes.

    I have a podcast and have taught a class on machine knitting.
