Etsy finds and the Eco Gift Guide

I’ve been a bit slack about getting my head around both Ravelry and Etsy so I’ve tried to put that right this week, so much so that my eyes are a bit screen weary, think I need to do some knitting.

Anyway, I spotted the work of Edinburgh based fashion knitwear label Isobel and Cleo at a wee makers fair in the Edinburgh last Sunday. Their collection of knitwear and accessories is an interesting and exciting blend of hand and machine knitting, if you like your knitting 4ply & Fairisle this will take you out of your comfort zone. Have a look at them over at Etsy and whilst you’re there check out Going Home To Roost a hub of gorgeous home crafting run by a lady called Bonnie. As well as selling  her range of hand made aprons, cushions and home accessories on Etsy Bonnie also blogs. This month she’s included Kitglobal’s Shetland Flame Scarf kit in Organic dyed Walnut in the Eco Conscious section of her Gift Guide which brings together truly original gift ideas for tech lovers, crafters, outdoorsy types and lots more.

The combination of this, Kirsty’s Homemade Christmas and the fog that’s been sitting over Edinburgh all day makes me want to stay in, stick another smokeless briquette on the fire and knit ~ in fact that just what I’ll do.
