Pin-up Girl

Ooooh! I’m so excited! Maeve is a pin-up girl! The lovely team at Knit magazine have featured her as one of their favourites in November.

Here she is, in the magazine.

They contacted me via Folksy a while back, asking for some high resolution images, but I wasn’t sure she was going to feature.
Thank you Knit magazine, for my 15 minutes of fame.


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!

    Now why doesn’t it surprise me that it is Maeve on the glossy page??? She is such a showgirl! Well done you and also well deserved as they are the most wonderful kits – as you know I am addicted to your sheep! I took my whole flock with me today to a gathering of spinners and we all sat spinning looking at the sheep out of the window and the sheep on the table in front of us!!! Claire x

      How great – the whole process from real sheep to yarn to knitted sheep in one place – , and thanks for being such a great ambassador for my kits. I can see it now when I’m rich and famous: Me: (to interviewer for Country Living Magazine) Oh yes, dear, well my success was greatly helped in the early days by a sheep mad lady called Claire, who used to carry my sheep around with her…….

    I was so thrilled to see this mag in my LYS… and both the owner and I were saying to customers… “we blog with her, isn’t it great?” Congratulations!
