About Emily

I've never been on a dating app, but if I was, I'd describe myself as: Crazy cat lady, fiery redhead with a need for adventure and adrenaline.

Hey! I’m Emily and I’m the knutter (knitter) behind Knitting and Knots.

It normally shocks people to learn that I’m a bit of an adrenaline junky, I love anything to do with adventure and my mountain bike gives me the biggest thrill of all – as well as the opportunity to get out and escape my own mind!

All about Moi

I’m one of 2% of the population with red hair, which actually is pretty damn cool!
I’ve taken part in a series of photographs for photographer, Lizzie Patterson, who was looking to document the celebration of redheads.

I’m a long haired, red headed, tattoo covered, quirky character who can usually be seen in tie dye, dungarees and vans.

I have a multitude of feathers to my cap, included graphic design, marketing, mountain biking, running and now knitting! Knitting is my therapy!
I wanted to track my progress with my new found hobby – turned obsession. I currently have more wool than I know what to do with.

I did Irish dancing for 8 years of my life and I always regret packing it in! I do a LOT of fundraising for Mind charity.

My favourite meal is dinner and my favourite take away is curry.. or is it pizza.. oh I don’t know.

My first knit was a gigantic chunky scarf and my current work in progress is a mulberry coloured cardigan. (Who am I kidding, I’ve got several ‘work in progress pieces’ on the go).
