Craft Fair

I took part in Glasgow south side craft fair on 15th August. Although I didn't manage to sell anything it was a good experience to have. I got to talk to the public about my work and experience my first craft fair. I shared a stall with Fiona Walker who was trying to sell her woven blankets. First photo shows one of her blankets with Poro. Bottom photo shows the products I have made for my new Talvi collection that I displayed at the fair. Everything is for sale on my etsy page.

New collection

'Talvi Ranua'
'Talvi metsa'

I have been working on a basic collection of scarves to sell all done on my Knit machine and inspired by my Scandinavian project I did at university. These are images of a couple of scarves I created for men, I wanted something simple yet unusual that men would be willing to wear. They are all knitted and felted then each one is hand cut. They will shortly be for sale on my Etsy shop.

Alpaca designs

I was recently employed to come up with designs for an Alpaca farm near Killearn, Ballochruin farm (campsie camelids). These are the first designs, a hat and pram blanket. They were very well received and I'm already working on more designs for them. They wanted simple attractive designs that showed off their Alpaca's yarn, Focusing on yarn quality rather than impact design. I created this Alpaca symbol and am currently working on their company logo, trying to translate it into fabric design. It was nice to work on simple attractive designs with minimal colour, watch this space for more Alpaca related design.
