I'll be back...
I have temporarily removed all patterns from publication or sale for updates and improvements. They will return in January 2023 on this website, Etsy and Ravelry. If you need pattern support during this time, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you in the new year!
I'm Ailsa and I live on the west coast of Scotland. I share my seaside home with my four-legged best friend, Brillo.
Since I was a child, I have always liked to make things. In 2014 I discovered the world of crochet. I learned through a video tutorial how to make a simple granny blanket and from that moment I was hooked. Since then, I haven't stopped and I've learned so many different techniques. Hundreds of projects later, I decided to give knitting a proper go. I'm still learning a lot about knitting and I hope to challenge myself to some lacework or cables soon.
Despite fibre arts being my main focus at the moment, I pick up interests (old and new) all the time. Every day I walk along the beach outside my home and collect pretty things that the sea has brought to the shore. Maybe one day soon these things will become jewellery.
Next on my list is letter-writing. I practiced calligraphy in my teens, and still doodle some of the lettering styles that I remember from then. This year, I'll see where my letters lead me.
If I'm not at home or working, I'll be outdoors exploring. I've been visiting Scotland's islands over the last few years and hope to visit more soon - the Shetland Isles maybe....?
I'd love to hear from you if making things is what you do too!
