#SupportCrafting Dragon Flower Jewllery

Dragon Flower Jewellery is the beautiful handmade jewelery store of Phillipa Ramsey-Baggs AKA my pal Pip.  She draws inspiration from her love of the chivalric and the world of geekdom (the avengers appears many times in her work) in creating a range of jewellery, stitch markers, bookmarks and, of course, dragons.

Pip runs the lovely blog over at Dreaming of Dragons which updates daily with various crafty goodness that inspires her; etsy, pintrest, yarn etc. Every day is something new! She is one of these rare types I call a ‘dualcrafter’- knitting and crocheting. O_O

Each piece she makes is handcrafted in Scotland. They are highly customisable in design and colour and made to order via her etsy store.

Even better! She will be selling at the Byres Road Makers Market this September!

#SupportCrafting Cia Jackson!

I know Cia Jackson from the Glasgow University Gaming Society, of which she is our glorious Lady President. She is one of the best geeks I know, rocking geek chic with lady attitude.

She works at the Yarn Cake in Glasgow where she spends her time smushing yarn, baking lovely cake and knitting lovely things. It’s a great hang out.

She has started to channel this knitting creativity into pattern design via Ravelry and blogging.

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!

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!

She can be found blogging here!

#SupportCrafting, Featuring Flora Robins

The crafting community is great, everyone has thier own style and intrepretation- not to mention that if we share the projects out we can make all the pretty things!

This week we have the work of Flora Robins, knitter and crocheter, frequent poster to the Glasgow Knitting Gathering as well as being an all round excellent gal.

I loved her ‘Zero’ from nightmare before Christmas. It’s a knitted piece with embroidery made from acrylic wool.

She says ‘the pattern is really easy to follow, just fiddly on small needles’. The pattern can be found here for free (click for link)

I think it’s turned out great! Can’t wait to see more Flo!
