Inspiration: Isle of Iona

Iona, an island of Inspiration

One of my favourite places, Iona, is full of colour. These colours have inspired my work, and the sense of calm I always feel there inspires the simplicity of it.

Knitwear Inspired by Island Colours

As the colours of my knitwear started with sea blues, white sands, and carpets of yellow flowers, I couldn't go back to Iona without taking some of it with me. So here are some photos of fun on beaches wearing jumpers and scarves (because it's Scotland, and you always need something cosy to wear!), and of Stitch and I having a moment!

Breathtaking Colour

I was so lucky with the weather this trip- it didn't rain once, although it was a bit misty at times, and so I was able to enjoy these stunning colours! Misty days in Scotland did inspire my Mist colourway, and sunsets like this play their part in the Oronsay Scarf
