Announcement    Scottish Knitwear For Kids And Grown Ups Order Book is now closed for Christmas Orders - Order Book Now Open for 2019!

Myself and my team of two hand knitters live and work at our craft in the beautiful Scottish Borders Country.

My "office" in Summer is a chair in the garden surrounded by birdsong and the click of my knitting needles! In Winter, the "office" is an armchair in front of the fire where I knit up Custom Orders or work at items to put in this shop.

Previously, I have hand knitted for a well known London Clothing Store and had the pleasure of producing knitted items for the actors in the major television series "Outlander!"

We knit for all age groups - for children we use yarns which are easily cared for but for adults we use traditional yarns such as Pure Scottish Aran Wool, Pure Wool and Scottish Double Knitting Wool - my intention is to add Shetland Wool later in 2018

The models you see are real people. not professional models and I am lucky to have models of all age groups. My motto is that I sell Real Quality Knitwear, Sold at Realistic Prices and Modelled by Real People!

Many of my items are my own Limited Edition Designs (which is noted in the description of the item) but also have a good selection of traditional Scottish patterns in the shop.

Custom Knitting is our forte, so if you have a pattern, or a picture or have your own design idea, contact me via Etsy and we can have a wee chat!
Anything you see on my page can be altered to your exact needs too - colour, change of neckline or change of size - nothing is a problem!
At the end of the photographs for items knitted in Pure Scottish Aran Wool, Scottish Double Knitting Wool and Scottish Chunky Wool, you will see Shade Chart, giving you an informed choice of colours available.

I aim to get the colour of the modelled garments as accurate as possible, but depending on the light quality, the shade can be a touch different from the original'
Be assured you can contact me if you are in any doubt regarding the colour of an item.

Please take your time and browse around my wee shop and haste ye back!

About

A Scottish Country Craft

For as long as I can remember, I have knitted in my spare time, and when I say spare time, I mean ALL my spare time! I knitted in my lunch break, in the car on a long journey (someone else was driving, honestly) even took my knitting on holiday!

Looking back, my mother spent most of her spare time knitting too - the fact that I am the youngest of seven children who ran around the countryside we were growing up in, ripping our jersey's as we went, had a lot to do with mother's prime spare time occupation!

She taught me how to knit and following a lot of practice, I began to enjoy my craft!
My own children were easily recognisable in Winter as they were top to toe in woolly things!!

Eventually, even I recognised I had to find an outlet for my urge to knit, and I was running out of family to knit for!
In 2011, I began to sell my work at Craft Fayres in the country towns that surround my home and am fairly proud that I had some small success with sales, but I then decided I needed a wee challenge!!
That challenge was to design then knit my own designs and find an outlet for them!

So....here I am....fulfilling that challenge! Etsy is my outlet for my own designs and other knits!
Enjoy looking at my shop...it never closes and there is always a warm welcome!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

For a Made To Order item - I need from you:-

.....the length you require from the nape of the neck to where you
want the length to be
.....the length of arm taken from the arm pit to length required
.....chest measurement taken from the widest part of the chest

Care instructions

I personally always recommend washing all woollen garments by hand and drying flat. Many yarn companies advise that their yarn can be washed by machine, which I have documented in the description if applicable, but my personal preference is to hand wash

Colour Choices

At the end of the Pure Scottish Aran, Pure Scottish Double Knitting or the Scottish Chunky Aran, I have a colour chart as Pure fibers have more limited colour choices but have great choices!
The items that are Aran Wool/Mix have many, many colour choices - please choose from the colour options listed and I'll be pleased to knit in the colour of your choice.
