Knitting was my first love
Even as a small girl marvelous dresses were my favourite. When I went to school I learned knitting from an old nun (but in a "normal" primary school in the beautiful small city Füssen, which is located at the foot of the castle Neuschwanstein of the famous king Ludwig II. in Bavaria / Germany), my passion was aroused. Since then I have the passion to create something of my own from scratch. My mother then taught me sewing, which probably was usual already in my family, because my grandma has always sewn, embroidered and crocheted. So has come slowly but surely one skill to another. I love beautiful, harmonious color combinations, noble natural materials and traditional patterns, soft wool, cashmere, silk, colors in soft natural tones and all colors of the rainbow ... I like to combine old and new and develop my own style from it. A little bit romance, a little bit boho, a little bit eco and lots of pleasure in doing things. Inspiration is my little girl that you see on many pictures at the moment.
