Knitted happiness for the home.
Hi, hello and welcome to S t r i k k handknits.
Lovely to meet you and thank you for stopping by.
During the day you will find me doing all things lawyerly in a Private Bank, and in the evenings, weekends, and sometimes at my desk, you can find me knitting all things for the home (my real passion, but er, don't tell the boss......!).
I take classic design inspiration from my Norwegian roots (Strikk means knit in Norwegian), and colour and yarn inspiration from my South African roots.
Everything you see here is hand knitted by me from start to finish.
After much debate and investigation, I choose to work with blended yarns as I find it works best for hand knitted decor items - it keeps its shape, there's no fuzzing and it's easy to launder.
Classic hand knits updated for modern homes.
I knit to order and keep to delivery dates indicated in my shop, but sometimes knitting gets a little busy, and I may need a little extra time to finish a product, but will also let you know. I can also knit superfast if you need something in a hurry, just let me know.
Custom orders - that's my speciality - I think every home should have something that's lovingly made just for it.
We've had a bit of press too - Australian Real Living, Women & Home UK, UK Vogue, Ideal Home and our cushions made one home-maker very happy in the BBC 1 DIY SOS show.

each item is handknitted to the highest standard, but please bear in mind that yarns are subject to different dye lots and to this end strikk cannot guarantee all products are identical - but then again, this is the charm of handknitted items.
