Squiggle shopping bag. I had lots of fun making this funky little shopping bag, using different yarns and adding squiggles randomly. It is hand-knitted and then felted so it will easily hold all your essential goodies.
If you are in Orkney this item can be seen and purchased at The Waterfront Gallery, Stromness.
I'm quite excited about adding my knitted umbrella to my textiles shop. My inspiration came from American textile designer Kelly Griffith, thank you Kelly. I trawled the second-hand shops in search of the right umbrella. Eventually I found it - rather sad, unloved and languishing in a corner. I soon got rid of it's rather worn black covering and re-clothed it in its brand new hand-spun coat. What a transformation!
