Here’s a finished Bump Bag:

sue's bump

I love the strong, zingy colours.  This Bump was knitted by Sue.  I also have a pic of another colourway that a customer made which I will dig out and add next.

If you fancy making Bump, you can buy the design here;  and the handles (not the ones originally used) here.

Bump Bag Handles

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

I have had some handles made that will fit the newly re-designed Bump Bag.  You can browse (as I believe we now have to term what we used to call ‘look at’) them here.

handles white (2)

I really like them.  They are plain and functional, quite light but not flimsy, and they are wooden, not famboo (fake bamboo), like so many are.  Personally I don’t like bamboo-stylee things. I might, if I was in South Pacific.  But I’m not.  I used the old Rowan ones because they fitted.  Once they were discontinued, it was very difficult to obtain ones that fitted or did not look plastic.

These are stained white, but you could re-paint them.  The Bump pattern can be ordered here.

I’ve only had 12 pairs made, by the way.




Christmas cards

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

I have a limited number of Christmas cards for sale.  They come in sets of 10 cards, 5 each of 2 designs.  These are the images:

On the front, each card says:  ’tis the season to be knitting…

And inside it says:  Peace. Love.  Knitting.

They are standard size (A5) and are in a high quality satin print. 

The set of 10 cards costs £12 including first class P&P.  You can order them here.   So now you can give the knitters in your life a pretty knitting Christmas card and remind them that Christmas is a time to knit!
