HELLO! MY NAME IS Cilla Webb
AND I DESIGN KNITTING PATTERNS.
I was born and raised in Belgium where I was taught how to knit by my mum at a very young age. I knitted my first whole jumper when I was about 8, which had a picture of captain Haddock from the Tintin comics.
Sadly I outgrew it very quickly and only wore it a few times. I moved to England when I was 20 to be with a lovely man who I married a few years later. I currently work as a teacher of the deaf, while raising my two amazing boys.
When I first started designing knitted toys, I published a few patterns with Knit Now! magazine. The feedback I got from them was very encouraging so I took the plunge and contacted a few publishing houses with a book proposal. The ball started rolling from there and I have since created 3 traditionally published book and just released my Christmas pattern e-book.
