Where do design ideas come from?

This design was inspired by the shapes of frozen water I found in puddles back in mid winter. I wanted to weave something for myself…………because I never do!

It’s made using yarn spun from the fleeces of sheep on the Shetland Islands (grey warp) and smooth, silky alpaca (natural white for the weft) from animals at the other end of the British Isles, in Devon. It is so warm and cosy, I am reluctant to take it off! I thought you might like to see it. There is a dark blue wrap for sale in my shop.

The photographs were taken down on St Andrew’s Harbour, near to the castle.
