Christmas is here! (only allowed after December 1st in our house ) and now the countdown begins. In the madness that is Christmas shopping, I thought I'd suggest a few pieces from the collection that would make lovely presents. Beautiful knitwear and scarves from Scotland, made by small family run manufacturers in Hawick, famous for its natural yarns and traditional homespun craft.
My daughter loves this Fairisle Cardi that has just enough vintage charm in three retro colours - rose pink, mint green and gorse yellow. We've also noticed that these patterns have been hot on the catwalks so a nice nod to this modern trend.
The Gansey Jumper has been a hit since I started this brand and I've had customers who bought the grey last year on a waiting list to buy the new navy. So for those who like a bit of nautical nostalgia then this is the perfect gift.
Red has been racing down the catwalks this season. I've always loved red for it's warmth and vibrancy and hence this Signature jumper confidently comes in one colour only and flies the flag for British manufacturing. A gift for all lovers of fashion and a classic for years to come.
The chunky Cable Knit scarf comes in two shades - a bold red and softest silver grey. A timeless, pretty scarf to ward off any winter chills.
What's clever about this scarf is that it is double sided with light and dark shades either side. Warm, uber soft merino wool in either monochrome mix or gentle rose and denim. A great present for those who have everything.
I've shown my 'knitted gifts' here with a selection of my Christmas wrappings - I've collected vintage wrapping paper for years and find that I can use anything from used string, ripped fabric scraps and even bias binding for ribbons. Used Christmas stamps make nice new name tags and by tucking in a little rosemary into ties and bows, not only do presents look good they smell good too! Just like my tree decorations I prefer to be more eclectic than perfect!
