This year I have decided to record my makes in my blog with photos and further details. I do this already via Instagram – Mamie and Florrie in my posts and stories, however, I’d like to do this in a little more detail this year. Plus I like to chat and share chatter about yarn, projects and I enjoy your engagement, we can talk yarn…
If you purchase one of my items you can see the story behind the making of it and understand the uniqueness of each piece, so here we go!
Ideas grow organically, sometimes they start with the yarn or ideas from somewhere I have visited, from feeling the texture and handle of the yarn and being excited by the colours of the blend or combination of several yarns, this gives me a sense of where and what it should be.
There will be other chatter too, my love of the outdoors, walking in the most gorgeous countryside where I live in the Peak District and the places I visit, friends I met over the year.
I have kick started January, let’s see where we end up in December!
On Sunday I taught my friend Fiona* to crochet. She mastered the treble, double, chain and slip stitch in her first lesson and went home with the beginnings of a cowl in her bag and video tutorials to help her out between lessons.
As part of her “Crochet Experience” I took Fiona on one of my absolute favourite walks up Mam Tor, having stopped at The Bridge Bakehouse for a luxury cake and coffee to go. A pretty perfect day.
We’ll be repeating it too if you would like to join us. You can learn a new skill and take inspiration from stunning surroundings. To join our Hook Ups or for further details you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
*Fiona and I met day one of Freshers Week at University in Scotland and shared a mutual love for The Smiths. Over the four years at Uni we became great friends and now we are lucky enough to live close enough to be able meet up regularly, we can usually found in the Northern Quarter in Manchester or found deep in yarn concentration.
Welcome to my Mamie and Florrie shop. I am building stock for you now, hang tight, there'll be more soon! Dismiss
