The light is changing and the harvest is slowly coming in. It is going to be a late harvest this year. The crops are taking their time to ripen apparently. Brambles are appearing ready to be picked on lovely Autumn walks, then made into jam. My new fairisles have just arrived and are ready to go. I am so excited about these new designs – colours look rich, the yarn feels so soft and they are spot on trend judging by the response from shops and customers. I have just sent some new stock down to a lovely shop in Elie called Piccadilly Lilly so please pop down and have a look. I have scarves, snoods and tammies. In this little collection I have gone back to looking at what makes Scottish Knitwear so unique and gorgeous. Starting with fairisles and mixing the knitting techniques used for years with my own new patterns all in sumptuous colours but with a modern twist. I have thought very carefully about how each colour will work within the fairisles. There is something for men, women and children young and old. The response has been amazing and I have had to reorder production before we even get into the Autumn.
Finally come and see my designs at the Balgove Night Market on the 14th September from 5 – 9 pm. It all about “The Rustic Life” so expect great music, delicious food and loads of amazing local producers and designers. We make some amazing stuff here in Scotland.
