Knit one .....

Now that the book is out of my hands and well on its way (due at the end of this week) I can finally get on with some new work. I am about to start making some small bags, and this picture shows the basic fabric.

I have knitted the basic shape to my own pattern. That took about an hour, to get it to this stage on the Embellisher took about 45 mins. It just need stitching together now, but that will take a day or two as I want to mesh some more bag fabrics first. If anyone is coming to the Knitting and Stitching Show at the NEC Birmingham UK next month I will have patterns and the yarn for sale. Look for us on stand H39, Winifred Cottage. (We will have the book there too.)

Nuvo Felt

I have had a request to explain about Nuvo Felt.

Nuvo felt is a fabric which is made from scratch on the Embellisher. It is a technique that I developed while trying to create a specific effect.

Instructions for making it will be in my book called 'The Embellisher: Let's Get Started!' which is due to be published at the end of August. Details, including cost and ISBN number will be posted here as soon as I have them.

If you have any further queries, send me an email to
