Sheep Thrills

A brief news update on Stitch-Mi-lane





The on-line shop http://stitchmilane.bigcartel.com/ launched little over two weeks ago and the initial response was brilliant. I have had good feedback on the products - and lots of orders too!

If you have bought a scarf I would love to see a photo of you wearing it.

If you are around Dundee and looking for a unique gift during the festive season - I have had a pop up shop confirmed at the DCA Christmas Market - taking place on the 1st December. Come along, see the stalls, meet the makers, and invest in some British design. 



I am looking to stock my products in small stores and have been in contact with a few different avenues. All good feedback so far and I will look forward to posting where else you can buy from soon...

"Sheep Thrills!" Last week was national wool week, I used the opportunity to work on some new product ideas and patterns. After the initial success of the Bike Twist Snood I am looking to expand the range. The designs are in development phase at the moment however I will be launching them onto the on-line shop soon. 
- keep your eyes peeled.

Bike Pattern Snood


In further development of the Bike Pattern Snood, I have found some lovely gift packaging for the scarves.

The scarves are handmade by myself from start (balls of wool) to finish (scarf in a box), out of high quality merino wool, and measure approx 85cm in circumference (8 bikes long, 3 bike lengths wide).

The Bike Twist Snood should be going on-line next week on a web shop, under the name Stitch-Mi-Lane, so called as it is the lane I live off. The Snood will be selling at a special introductory price.

Bike Pattern Snood





In a slight gear change from portrait painting- I have started on a new project, knitting. Using a Knittmaster knitting machine I bought a couple of years ago. The machine was bought with the intention of mastering some form of interesting woolens, but alas studying for my degree 'got in the way' and all I managed to use it for was to make some knitted sausages as part of an butcher shop installation project. However now graduated, I find myself with lots of time and an obligation to stay creative. So my Bike Pattern Snood project was born. Working from the hallway in my parents home I have been testing different patterns, colours, materials and sizes. After a number of weeks practising I think I have got the formula right, so I have taken the plunge and invested in some lovely Merino wool and will be starting production of some final product snuds - with the view to selling them online once I have a small stock ready.

As a self confessed perfectionist, I am making sure I am 100% happy with the look, feel, and fit of the Snuds before putting them up for sale. Below are some of the photos of the developments so far...
