Artist Interview: Cally Booker - BonnyClaith

The Artist Interview returns with local talent - please welcome Cally, whom I've met at the Meadow Mills Open Studios day - her collection of an amazing rainbow of yarns instantly drew me to her space :-)
This striped yardage was inspired by a multi-coloured skein of yarn
please tell us about yourself / background / childhood impressions 
My name is Carolyn. It got abbreviated to Cally when I was an undergraduate in the 1980s – and now pretty much everyone calls me Cally except my mother, who hates it! 
I learned to sew and to knit from my mum and can’t really remember a time when I didn’t make things.
