This summer i have worked on an Alpaca farm that does b&b and self catering cottages. during that time i was able to use the alpaca fibre to felt with which was great. i have created a range of felted cards in different animal shapes, made felted toy alpacas and am also working on some knitted designs for the alpaca wool.

This is my first attempt at a bag to sell. I have knitted a small rectangular shaped piece of fabric then stitched it up 2 sides. I have made felted flowers out of blackfaced sheep wool that has been dyed. The felting was fun to do as I haven't done it for ages. I'm going to try and sell it on my etsy.com shop. This design is just a test to see if knitted bags sell. I will be basing my new designs on actual projects I am doing at the moment.
Hopefully more bags will be on the way soon but first I need more yarn and time!

Here is one of my jumpers, modeled by my dog Halley, he wasn't very impressed. I knitted this on my brother knit machine then felted it, as it is only the second jumper I have made I was pretty pleased with it even though it was far too small for me! I plan to knit more garments and accessories to sell, not for dogs though! I'm currently working on a simple lambs wool knitted bag so images of it will be up shortly!

Well this is my first post so I thought I would show you a bit of my work. This is a photograph from my exchange to Finland last year. I really liked the autumn colours, they were so rich over there. The strong colours intertwine with more neutral tree trunks to create an interesting pattern. I really like patterns in nature and think my final year project will be based on it alot.
Will post again soon with more of my work!
