Louisa Harding says:

"The inspiration behind my selection of yarns was evoked by a memory triggered by my 4-year-old daughter. Recently I found her collecting fallen flower petals and putting them into a bowl. As a child, I also gathered petals from my mother's garden, put them into a large mixing bowl and marvelled at the wonderful colours and textures. Smooth, waxy petals and soft fluffy stamen that stained your fingers and their overwhelming heady perfume.

"Flowers play an important part in the person I am. They draw me with their colours, their shapes, their intricacies. I always like to be surrounded by them, a reminder of how clever nature is, the way it knits together many different elements to create one perfect bloom."
