stockings!
Recently a girl from my high school (that parts just a strange coincidence – but maybe they’re good at making creative knitters, Gudrun went there too!) spent a week doing work experience in the shop. Sarah got her started knitting one of my stockings.On her last day I helped her finish the heel and although she was uncertain about the colourwork she took it home to finish. Uncertain, huh? I think she figured it out pretty well! We were delighted when she brought it back for us to hang it in the window. I love seeing creative takes on my patterns. What have you done, or thought of doing with the stocking pattern?

I’m playing catch up today, I’ll be back later with last week’s adventures in London.

Lightweight cowls

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
