Her latest designs are the Graduand Scarf and the Wandering Fae Cowl, both of which I’ve downloaded and can’t wait to get started!
The Graduand Scarf
The Wandering Faw Cowl
She is inspired by her own university life, times and tends to knit things when she should be studying. Fair enough I suppose.
The Graduand Scarf has been made available for free right now just to get you hooked on her work and the lovely Wandering Faw Cowl is only £1! Stock up! Even better, if you go an visit her face to face in the Yarn Cake and make the relevant yarn purchase for the pattern, the pattern comes free! What better excuse to buy more yarn!
I love sticking things together and making things to show mum. You too?
I’ve having a look round the crafting community on my front door and realized just how many fantastic crafters there are. It’s amazing to see so many lovingly made products, originally designed and handmade.
From my home town in Glasgow, I love to wander round craft fairs, vintage fairs, boot fairs that I find. From the people who hang pictures on the botanic gardens on weekends to the people who sell vintage wares in Vespa Bar, I love it all. it puts seriously holes in my purse!
This week in celebration of my love of craft (and the fact I’m super busy with custom gloves at the moment, want a pair? Let me know!) I am featuring some of Glasgow’s local talent! ThreadCetera has been growing more popular recently (I’m looking at you Cult of Yarn) and I want to be able to share this love.
Everyday I will be posting local talent who knit, jeweler, play with wool, love sticking things etc. If you know someone you’d love to see blogged let me know by emailing email@example.com
We will be tweeting it all week @ThreadCetera (follow us!) using the hashtag #SupportingCrafting!
This week has been super busy, super because that has been the theme of this weeks crafting! Last weeks fair generated a whole lot of super hero glove orders, custom orders for the super hero of choice. Every geek is different and everyone has their own tastes. Here are a few of the ones I’ve been doing for customers this week.
Robin DC gloves!
Here we have Robin from Batman and Fluttershy from My Little Pony (special brony gloves). They are all measured to fit and all colours and designs were agreed with the customer. These really are fully customization friendly.
We have a few more in the works, an order for Joker, Black Canary and Nightwing!
Do you have a favorite hero? Do you fancy having warm hands while you type but still want to be able to comment on your favorite blogs? Get in touch today to go through the design process with us, the result is gloves designed JUST FOR YOU!
At only £9 with P+P (£10 outside the UK) They are a geeky snap!
All gloves are designed totally by me using a full trial and error developed pattern (poor manpal has been the guinea pig for months!) and will be to your own color and logo choices all in line with our #SupportCraft ethos.
Now I haven’t watched a lot of Avatar. However my manpal is a fan, he watched quite a bit of the season with Korra in it with me. He likes to think about what sort of bender he is, he settled on earth- big, strong, calm, forceful. He decided I was fire- passionate, quick to emotion, angry.
ThreadCetera had it’s own stall (my first!) at the Glasgow by Gaslight fair on Saturday just past. Here are a few photos from the event!

The best seller of the day was our superhero themed gloves, pictures. I am currently doing custom orders for these and have orders for all sorts thus far. Custom orders are only £9 including all postage. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form below if you would like a design consultation or a quote!
We had a blast at the fair and can’t wait for next years. Hope to see you at a craft fair soon!
