Hello 2015!

I’m appalled at my lack of blogging lately, and will endeavour to bring you more regular updates of the world of Emma Dickie Design this year!

2014-12-12 20.10.27I am still going through a gradual redesign of my shop – streamlining my products and clearing out some of my older designs in order to make way for new goodies.  (You can have a peek at my clearance items right here…)

At the end of last year I created my first ever Fair Isle hat and this will be listed in my shop shortly.  It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought it would be and so thrilling to see the pattern begin to come to life as I knitted each round.  If you’ve been intimidated by Fair Isle knitting in the past I urge you to give it a try and see for yourself just how easy it is!

I’m also still experimenting with metalwork – I got a new drill and hammer for Christmas so expect to see some new metalwork jewellery soon (although I have kept the first pair of earrings for myself)!

2015-01-10 15.46.53As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I’ve been making a lot of Cross Stitch Heart Earrings, and was delighted when a pair of them was featured in the latest issue of Sew Magazine!

So, that’s the latest news from me… but I’m hoping to be back again soon with another update!
