Inspiration often comes from the landscapes around me. For my new hand knitted accessories, it's the Eildon Hills that have provided it.
The Eildon Hills are my local landmark in the Scottish Borders- I see them every day from my walks with my dog Stitch, and walk up them on others for the fantastic views. They're visible for miles around, so often on my journey home from trips I can see them all the way, welcoming me back. So I feel very attached to these hills- the way they change through the seasons, and their distinctive peaks and the little discoveries I make there.
Theses landmark peaks and the small lake half way them up are the inspiration behind my latest hat design. The points in the pattern are as distinctive as the hills. I've used thick, soft wool, so that these accessories will be perfect for hills walks and exploring in winter.
