Mocktails & Cocktails

Mocktails & Cocktails

A new design for the winter season, inspired by the variety of mocktail and cocktail drinks and their glass shapes!  The outer fabric has been machine knit using Jamieson’s of Shetland Spindrift wool in a dark grey called Oxford, and a stunning 100% British Blue Faced Leicester yarn from Rusty Ferret in Dundee called Kids Rainbow. The pink handle and lining fabric, which looks like sliced fruit to me, is from Fabric Focus in Edinburgh.  These bags will be for sale in my shop update on Friday 27th November at 8pm (Edinburgh time).

Save the Oblong Fern

Save the Oblong Fern

The oblong woodsia known as Woodsia ilvensis is the rarest fern in Britain and in danger of extinction.

Nadia Russell who is currently studying the oblong woodsia kindly explained to me the problems the plant is facing.
