About Sarah Jane Lightfoot
Sarah Jane Lightfoot is a Textile Designer who majored in knitting at RMIT graduating in 2007. She is fully aware of how ridiculous going to uni to study knitting sounds but she loves it.
Her Mum taught her to knit and crochet from a young age and she continues to knit her way to eternal warmth. She is continuously on the lookout for a new yarn shop to peruse and losses her shit a little too much over pretty knitting needles found in op shops.
