Warm Wool Heart Knitting Postcard Set

The first postcard set is now available for purchase! There are 5 postcards in the set entitled warm wool heart, and I’m so so pleased with them. There are small motifs that thread through the images and pull them together: hearts, curls, folds, snows & greys. I also think one could construct a timeline of the life of the knitted garment from these photos: the yarn in a foetal ball, the cast on, the ‘live’ stage, the finished fabric, and the leftovers. The more I look at the postcards, the most I realise how many memories I have attached to them, and… how wonderful all these memories are! This one winter of working on Laylock; all tentative beginnings, slow beginnings, false starts & restarts, Welsh snow, Turkish snow, the metre-deep, draughty windowsills of this small cottage, days alone with my camera, wrapped in shawls & wearing many skirts, crackly cricket on LW, birdsong. Honestly, I can’t say how they all sneaked in there…
Well, if you feel even a fraction of what I do about this set of postcards, I thought you might like to send them as gifts. To this end, there are instructions here, and here’s a peek at the envelopes, and one of the ‘wrappers’ that I designed. Thank you once more for all your support. :)

please do not bendfor you...

Speaking of packaging, I requisitioned my free Graze box to keep buttons & bits in. If you’re in the UK, I strongly recommend you give them a try. You can get a free box using this code: V2M17XB, and a selection of yummy healthy snacks will be delivered to you by Royal Mail, in a handy box that’s small enough to fit through your letter box. Just remember to cancel the next delivery if you don’t want to receive any more.

graze box: napkin!
