"Who would have thought that a human and a dragon could make such a perfect match?"
-E.D. Baker, A Prince Among Frogs
My name is Ruth Hilton-Robinson and White Dragon Designs is the business I started when I decided to concentrate on my passion for knitting and designing as well as other crafts.
I'm a registered adult nurse by training and I started knitting as a hobby. However, I soon realised that I wasn't truly happy unless I had a pair of needles and some yarn in my hands. This progressed to creating my own designs and publishing some free patterns on Ravelry and suddenly I began to wonder if I could actually make knitting my living...
When I took the difficult decision to leave nursing for health reasons, the question everyone asked was "What now?" Initially, my honest answer was, "I don't know," but the more I thought about it the more I realised that I already knew what I wanted to do - and White Dragon Designs was born.
Why 'White Dragon' Designs? That would be telling. It's my fervent hope that some of you will work it out - if you do, please drop me an email, it will make the dragon very happy!
I hope you enjoy the patterns and designs, and look forward to meeting you either through tuition, workshops or craft fairs and events.
"We're our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves."
