Simply Knitting - - What’s New -

World-renowned knit de­signer

We take five min­utes with Erika Knight and delve into her daily rou­tine…

Up early or slow to rise? Up early – I’m a night owl too and of­ten find that in­spi­ra­tion strikes in those small hours, or early in the morn­ing!

First job of the day? Tak­ing Win­nie our three-legged chi­huahua out for a walk. I live five min­utes from Brighton sea front – a big breath of sea air is a great way to start the day.

Mid-morn­ing pick-me-up? Tea and a bis­cuit!

Fave time to sit back and take five? Tak­ing time o is a real treat, and al­ways more fun mid-week when ev­ery­one else is work­ing! I like hav­ing a mooch in flea mar­kets and junk shops.

Leisurely lunchtime? Just a quick sand­wich at my desk and a re­view of my di­ary for the week.

Post-lunch pri­or­i­ties? Ev­ery day is di er­ent, it could be call­ing stock­ists, de­sign­ing new yarns, sketch­ing ideas, swatch­ing stitches or plan­ning an up­com­ing work­shop or talk.

Clock­ing-o time? When you run your own busi­ness there is no end to the day. Even when I close the door to the stu­dio my mind is busy with ideas and to-do lists! For more on Erika, www.erikaknight.co.uk.

Erika’s mind is al­ways buzzing with new yarn ideas…
