Paddy O'Connell

learned to knit at the age of seven and as a result had some very well dressed troll dolls. She has been knitting steadily ever since, mostly her own designs using her own handspun yarn. She is very interested in advanced techniques and skills and continues to study and learn as much as possible. She has taught basic knitting classes through the Denman Island Community School.    Paddy has designed knitting patterns for sale as well as working with local Denman Island yarns and fleece produced by Sandstone Farms.

An avid knitter since the age of seven, Paddy loves to share her knowledge with anyone interested in learning and improving the skills needed for this ancient and rewarding craft. She has led classes on a variety of knitting basics at the CTC for the past five years.
