Hello, and welcome to my shop. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans.
When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers and now I have a knitting shop in Broadwindsor in Dorset, selling all sorts of woolly loveliness. Do come visit!
I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time.
I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
I blog at www.madebyewe.co.uk and am also on Facebook - hope to see you there! x
