My name is Tracy and I am YarnSmith Studio, based on the beautiful Isle of Wight, where we have lived since 2007.
At the age of 10 my Mother taught me to knit, then I taught myself to crochet - I have not stopped since...
At home I have a workshop in a spare room where my creations come to life, though there is never enough room and I always seem to end up working in about 6" of space.
I am inspired by what is around me and have a quirky sense of fun, which translates into my work, from cactus pincushions and crochet goldfish which swim around in their own tank. For my knitting designs, I like to create patterns that are influence by friends, events or history.
My life is shared with my partner whom I met in 2000, and currently we have 5 cats at home, when we get the time we also foster and raise funds for local cat charities.
I look forward to sharing my creations with you all.
