Neisha has a degree in Art & Design and loves working with many different mediums – yarn and fabric included.  Although Neisha has been knitting for over 25 years she has only recently started designing knitwear and is thoroughly enjoying the journey.

While she draws inspiration from many sources, nature is generally the starting point for most of her projects. Her work is also influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement and its romantic take on the natural world.

As well as having designs published on the I Like Knitting website, she has two designs to be featured in a book publication in Spring of 2016 and one design to be published as part of a 12 pattern collection for Willow Yarns.
