Covid Time Knitting


I’m your host at Folly View – the cleanest and best value self-catering accommodation in South Shropshire

Covid Time Knitting

Covid Time has given me the opportunity to explore and experiments with my knitting.

I love knitting and find it relaxing and challenging. There is always something new to learn.

My Covid Time Knitting has resulted in two cardigans, a short sleeved jumper, four hats, four neck warmers, a scarf and two large shawls. I have also started a cardigan called Ursula by designer Kate Davies.

I have been experimenting doing my own designs which is both fun and frustrating. The neck warmers and hats are designed by me. And one of the shawls I knitted is my own design.

I would have knitted more but the neck warmer I am currently knitting has been undone three times. I am still not happy with it. As it is a birthday present I need to get it finished, soon.

I have designed and knitted three hats for my Dad. I am currently designing him a hat in very bright colours. Lyndon, Dad and I went to Shetland eight years ago and I bought him a colourful hat which he has recently lost.

At Folly View we have several guests who enjoy crafting. I always enjoy seeing or hearing what projects guests have on the go.
