Knitting for charity...

Monday, 20 June 2011
MAY in softest viscose / cotton yarn in ice cream colours for Summer... 
A little detail showing the minty leather button... I am currently making a faded plaster pink one...
And O my... this took ages to make! 
SCARLET mini shawl for keeping snuggly on Summer evenings when picnicking in corn fields full of poppies... 
Or extra toastiness beneath a Winter coat...
Both are in the Fairysteps shop in the knitwear section here...

I am so glad that I have decided to use Fairysteps as the outlet for my charity knitwear. It is very important to me that I knit (or crochet) everyday so I have quite a high output of woolly treasures coming out of my knitting bag... Think Mary Poppins carpet bag BUT with wool and hooks and pins...
50% of all knitwear sales will be donated to Cancer Research UK so if you buy knitwear from Fairysteps it means that we can BOTH do something to help others. Plus I get the joy of making the item and you get the pleasure of using it! See, its win, win!!!

Littlest and I will be doing a charity Christmas fair too so thats going to be fun preparing for. Gosh, Christmas seems a fair way off today, but no doubt it will creep up on us all too soon.

I had a wonderful weekend, hope you all did too!

This coming week will be full of shoe pictures and bespoke bags and boots... Better get back to work!
