Working with my two models to get some shots of my new knitted beanies. Many hours spent testing yarns and working out my patterns to get a good universal size. My younger daughter has a larger head, the hats are designed for an average adult head and will fit from approx. age 10 to 110. I have also been experimenting with acrylic mix yarns for softness, wearability and easy washing. I always used to be quite purist about my yarns, 100% natural fibre only, but these don’t always work best for hats, itchy heads and hand washing don’t suit everyone!
I am having a huge one off sale in my Etsy shop. It’s time for a change, I’m not closing down just moving in a different direction, so this is a last opportunity to pick up one of my original art pieces at an amazingly reduced price. Happy shopping xx
The beginning months of this year have been pretty awful as I have been really ill, I have felt like I’m drowning in a fog of exhaustion, not being able to get things done is incredibly frustrating and depressing, I am not comfortable or even able to rest ( a contributing factor to my becoming so I’ll!)
So for me to have spent many days in bed unable to stay awake was quite a serious stock taking moment for me. Thankfully I am on the mend and as I rise out of my miserable fog I am very motivated to make changes. First was to sort out the house and my workspace, this is the first time in months I have felt able to get physical with the house! Major furniture moving, all books off bookcase, dusted, discarded, and organised, the same with all my fabric. I have extended my work table in preparation for new projects. Feeling good if just a tiny bit exhausted, it’s time for change! Happy spring cleaning.
