About me...

Hello, thanks for dropping by. I'm Lauren, the one holding the really big needles and basking in a room full of knitting. In the interests of getting to know each other, some quick fire things I love include - Dungarees, Harry Potter, tea & biscuits, staying in and colour coding things.

I imagine you're here to learn a little more about me but i'll try not to bore you with too many details (that's what the blogs for) Knitting is the third love of my life (behind my dog Harry and husband Alex) My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was 11, I wish I could say it was love at first attempt but that would be a fib, it took a few more years hard work and a degree in Knitwear to really appreciate it. I now work from my home studio in beautiful Devon, spending my days hand knitting and pinching myself to confirm that this is actually my life.

I love the tactility of making something so big and cosy

I imagine you know by now but just in case - I create super chunky goodies, mainly soft furnishings like blankets, footstools and cushions, as well as some knitwear and Christmas pieces.  I love the tactility of making something so big and cosy and always wanted to hand knit but knew I needed to do it quite quickly, so the biggest yarn I could find seemed a great solution to that. The beautiful merino wool I use is so big that the knitting itself is speedy, the time consuming part comes after, when I hand process each item to help bond the fibres. Time consuming as it may be, it is vital for both quality and to increase the lifespan of each product.

Each of my products is designed with both style and comfort in mind. I love to create statement knits that bring a luxurious WOW factor into people homes. Combining the classic art of knitting with up to date, stylish design to enhance living rooms and bedrooms alike.

So please do have a browse and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or just fancy a chat.
