Unravel 2012 stash




So this is what I bought ….. British natural coloured yarn from Jarol – haven’t seen this one before – I think it will be an owl when it grows up


More lovely Gotland yarn from Well Manor Farm in Hampshire – I could have bought the entire stall


A jar of sunshine – you can never have too many buttons


The last 4 balls of lovely nutty brown Shetland wool from Middle Campscott  Farm – don’t know what I’m going to do with this yet but who can say no to the last 4 balls!

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!

    last one … two … three … four balls of pretty much any yarn is good.Provided it’s a weight and fibre mix that you’ll use.
