The 2 Way Loop Cushion is the project for the first day workshop of the year. If you liked the Ripple Cushion from last year, then you will love this workshop. Make a large and very striking loop cushion with a woollen tweed fabric back. This workshop is a great introduction to 3D and partial knitting. and is great fun to do. Hopefully it will spark your imagination to try other 3D knitting techniques.  The quirky loops on the cushion can be used in two ways, as shown in the images below. The images are of my design swatch, I will be posting images of the finished cushion in the next couple of weeks.

Devonshire Fell 4 square
I had a fantastic response to my first workshop holiday, it sold out within 4 days of going live on my website and shop! 

I’ve had lots of emails asking if I’m organising another one, well yes I am. It will be in a different location to the FAIRISLE IN THE DALES holiday. I can’t announce it yet but rest assured you will be the first to know about it when I make it live for booking.





Sorrel Tank low res 2
I’m now offering individual printed patterns in the shop. These designs are exclusive and cannot be seen in any of my books. The first design available is SORREL TANK, more will be added to the shop in the coming months. For information and to buy, click on the image above.




Fairisle Bag 5
I’m pleased to announced that just over £1280.00 has been raised so far with the sale of the digital Fairisle Bag pattern. For those of you who have bought this pattern, a big thank you on behalf of myself and Helen and Caroline of Ribbon Circus, Hebden Bridge for your donation.

If you have not bought the pattern yet, can I please appeal to you to do so. You will be happy in the knowledge that the whole of the £4 (minus the VAT) will go to the Ribbon Circus appeal fund and you will be helping a small business get back on it’s feet after the recent devastating floods that hit many parts of Yorkshire. To buy the Fairisle bag pattern, click on the image above.



There are now only 15 places left in the Fairisle Club. It’s not too late to join but please hurry, as once the 23 places have gone the club will close. For more information and to book, click on the image above.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this update from me!
