New Pattern release - Brioche & garter stitch !

Posted on


Hi there! 

I'm hoping that you are OK and keeping yourself busy and entertained. 

Up until a couple of weeks ago I was feeling a little guilty, still being able to work from home, still enjoying my garden and taking my dog out for long walks in the countryside. The weather has been glorious, the air feels nice and clean and hearing the birds singing in a morning is lovely. Watching the news and hearing the devastation that's happening was overwhelming for me. I totally respect the NHS staff and care workers that are putting their own lives on the line. I wanted to do something too. So...….. I'm sewing medical gowns. We have a mill (a shirt manufacturer) in our little village that has got a contract with the NHS to produce millions of gowns! They have an army of volunteers and yes I'm one of them. I'm not producing them very quickly but for my own sanity I feel I am helping in my own small way. I have to balance the gown production with everything else; keeping my online shop going & keeping my relationship on an even keel.

So what's new in the shop?

Well I have finally managed to release a new pattern. I designed and knit it earlier on in the year and was waiting to find a model so I could get some good photos. Well that's not going to happen for a while so I decided to take some photos in my newly decorated attic studio instead.

In the meantime there are......
