Felt Knitting/Craft Bags

I have in stock some beautiful felt bags, ideal for keeping all your craft projects together. At the moment I have them in red, tan and chocolate brown. They are £18.50 each and are perfect for personalizing with hand made felted flowers, embroidery or whatever takes your fancy.  Let your imagination run wild.  They will go under a sewing machine with care so you could applique, or you could just leave them plain.  I love them and will be getting more colours in soon so watch this space.

Odds & Ends Cardigan

Good morning everyone.

I am sure you are enjoying the good weather and spending lots of time outdoors.  But for some people it is actually TOO hot and I am sure those people would like something to do indoors that is not too strenuous, and I think I have the perfect project for you.

Remember the odds and ends blanket?  Well this is the odds and ends cardigan.  I chose a plain DK cardigan pattern and made up the stripes as I knitted the back, then followed this same sequence for the front and sleeves.  When I ran out of a colour I just omitted it and I think the result is rather striking.  It is age 3-4, and all Double Knitting yarn.  I chose to do a wavy edge but if it was for a boy you could do a plain edge and maybe choose a blue colour for your main.

Double knit Odds & Ends Cardigan

If you have remnants of Aran weight or chunky then just choose a plain pattern in the correct wool weight.

My Youngest Customer

My youngest customer left the shop on Friday a very happy person indeed.  Even though the weather is far too good for wooly hats there was no way this one was leaving her head this side of bedtime!!

I knit mum a pure shetland wool jumper and with the leftovers I crocheted a beanie hat for her daughter and put a flower on with a ladybird button.  It is very cute and a very simple pattern.  The flower and ladybird finish it off beautifully.

Make someone happy with a little love and a hand knit.
