Knitting expert

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:23 pm on 12 February 2014

When she was just five years old she started knitting and she hasn't put the needles down since. She's a professional knitter, doing jumpers with the kiwis and pukekos on the front for tourists. Now she works with merino wool, knitting at least four hours a day. She's added collecting yarn labels to her list of passions, and has more than three thousand labels from at least 40 different countries. It all started with a comment in a newsletter she started 10 years ago and the labels keep coming in.
