Recent projects:

Here are a couple of things that we’ve been doing over the previous couple of weeks. I eventually completed the hand knitted pillow from the novel Homespun Vintage of Jane Crowfoot.

This scarf has become the job of the season. It’s our own simple design, fast to knit, using a furry pom pom at every end.


So, we’ve both been enjoying a small amount of Scandi divine knitting. Linda did this pillow that is wonderful in Rowan Brushed Fleece and I’m still taking care of a fair isle cowl Nordic Knits, from Eline Oftedal’s novel. I made a decision to work it in Rowan Lima, which will be really soft and altered the colours and yarn.

And last, but not least, this lovely patchwork throw, worked in massive Rowan Alpaca Chunky squares was made by Linda.

With our present workload we are looking to outsource a lot of our admin work to a virtual receptionist type service so please don’t be too surprised if calls are answered by someone new!
