Cat's Profile

About

Hi! My name is Catriona McLaughlin and I'm a Scottish Textile Designer. I have a confession to make: I'm a knitting addict. There is rarely a day goes by where I haven't knitted, or haven't done something related to a thing I may have knitted. But at least it's a productive obsession :)

Scotland's beautiful & historic capital city, Edinburgh, is my home and where I create knitted & stitched textiles, mainly accessories such as scarves, wraps and mittens.

Crafting is one of those things I just really enjoy doing, it's the perfect creative outlet for me and I've always been excited about accessories - I own far too many! (Mind you, can a girl really ever have too many?!) So after studying textiles, I started designing my own.

Crafting is one of those things I just really enjoy doing, it's the perfect creative outlet for me and I've always been excited about accessories - I own far too many! (Mind you, can a girl really ever have too many?!) So after studying textiles, I started designing my own.

I use Merino lambswool in beautiful colours to knit my scarves (on my vintage mechanical knitting machine) which are then felted to make them luxurious and wonderfully soft. I sometimes use other natural or man-made fibres in my designs to spice things up and love doing both hand & machine knitting.

I do make custom/bespoke orders too (just ask!). If you see something in my 'sold' items you like, do ask as I can usually make them again.

I also create accessories for kids & knitting patterns - see my second etsy shop here: http://wildkittens.etsy.com
