First Looks at “Hetherington”

Yesterday I started work on a new sweater design. This is becoming a regular opening statement isn’t it but I’ve got a few designs that I need to work on and now commissions are out of the way, I’ve got some time to do just that. You’re not really interested in the why though are […]

First Steps

I’ve taken another step towards global domination. During the summer I was approached by Brits Home Chic inviting me to sell my knitwear through them. At first I was a little confused. I knit menswear and looking at the website, there didn’t seem to be much in that area. Some emails passed between the co-founder […]

Block Party!

The last few post have been quite introspective. I’m sure  you’re desperate for something less navel-gazey. Let me assist. I’ve been blocking a sweater but not any old sweater. No siree bob. This is the first proper view of “Fraser”. I’m really pleased with the effect and how well it’s blocked. I’m working on the […]

“Wilson” – First Glimpse.

“Wilson” finally came off the needles the other day so it’s currently being blocked. While it was all stretched and gorgeous, I thought I’d take some shots for you – It may look straight forward but the stitch is what makes this garment a little bit different. The fabric is quite dense, making ir lovely […]

This Week I Have Mostly Been …

Well actually, I’ve mostly been wrapped up in blankets on a sofa while the cold my husband had been incubating, decided it had imposed on his hospitality enough and it was time for a change of scenery. Normally my body is a temple. Currently it is a holiday complex for what feels like the bacterial […]

New Projects.

The second commission is finished! Of course now the work is over, I’ve succumbed to the bacteria my husband has been incubating for the last few days. So I’m curled up on the sofa with warm blankets and being kept in tea. (Being my personal chai wallah is the least Boy can do). However, I […]

This morning I had a wonderful parcel in the post.  I bet you can’t guess what is in the box! I’ve been ordering yarn for my line of finished garments. Sheepfold is a wonderful shop that is committed to supplying British yarn and particularly fibre from rare breeds. I love the quality of the product […]
