A Year of Making

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!

Monochrome Winter Blankets

 

Monochrome Winter Blankets

Winter usually feels like a long
And dark and dull season
But it is full of inspiration
The sunrises have been beautiful
Nature looks it’s most stunning
And there’s also the warmth
And comfort of home settling down
A warm drink, mulled wine
A box set
A dog
A loved one
Under a warm handmade blanket

I’ll be adding more blankets to the shop
Only using quality yarns
All my blankets are handmade
Over many hours with great care
Every stitch counts.
