Alison Tibbles at work Hokitika Craft GalleryI am a hand-knitter. My mother taught me to knit when I was a little girl, and I have continued throughout my life. It is such a passion that I class myself as a ‘knit-aholic’.

I like to use lots of different yarns, mainly New Zealand wools and mohair, but I also like to dabble in all the new funky yarns being produced at this time.

Designing my own garments is also something I enjoy. The range I knit includes jerseys, jackets, wraps, scarves and hats, in styles for both men and women.
