It's a Tweedtastic Life!

A gallery of just a few Tweed Queen Designer Delights for the Discerning, created over the years.

Some are commissions, or particular favourites. Even now, when I look at Winnie the Warthog, I can't work out how I made her!!

I love it when some of our lovely customers come back to see me with their well-loved handbag which has given them many years of loyal service.  Some of these bags are around 15 years old and still going strong!!

First Creations

This is my very first ever attempt at knitting, double knitting wool, pink obviously, old size 12 needles, so fairly fine and not a bad start, though I say it myself!

I needed to learn as my beloved grandad wanted a pair of fingerless gloves with long ribs to keep his hands warm. These are now over 40 years old and my daughter still wears them every winter.

How's that for sustainability?!

The Fair Isle jumper was knitted from an incomplete 1930's pattern when I was about 15 - photo recently re-discovered!

Hurrah! Mr E, Sir Richard and a few other friends, were enthusiastic Tweed Runners, and between us, over our 4 years of 'cycling' around the great city of London, the gentlemen both won Most Dapper Chap, whilst my steed featured here won Best Dressed Bicycle out of over 500 bicycles - an accolade indeed! And it transpires you do always need a cocktail cabinet with you!

I can be seen cycling with the basket and Chanel Tweed panniers adorning my Raleigh most days on the sunny streets of Dolly Dale.
