About Claire Garland
I have written several bestselling knitting books with publishers including FW Media, Avova Books Group, Octopus Publishing & MQ Publications.
I live with my husband and three children in a pretty stone cottage in rural Cornwall where I knit and crochet and sell and showcase my patterns worldwide via my blog, Etsy and Ravelry - I also find time (perhaps too much time!) to be inspired by my favourite site Pinterest, other folks' blogs and the many glorious books available today. - My vice - book buying - my latest as I write this; Sibella Court's Gypsy and What Katie Ate by Katie Quinn Davies.
