I learned to knit at 8 years of age and have been doing so for more decades than I care to count. This shop came from a love of working with wool, both spinning and knitting.
I make a variety of knitted items, many from vintage patterns. I am a traditional knitter and prefer to knit the old way with lightweight yarn and fine needles.
My current interest is vintage Fair Isle knitting and making hats from vintage patterns from the 1920s, 30's and 40's. I try to be as authentic as possible and use wool and natural yarns as would have been used in that era.
Please visit my shop "The old white cupboard"where I also sell vintage fabrics and sewing supplies.
