Named after my Great Aunty Betty.

A truly amazing lady who inspired my slowcraft journey

by giving me a hand knitted blanket when my first child, Regan, was born.

She always made time for those she loved and welcomed everyone with a hug.

I hope you feel loved and welcomed in your Betty Sweater.

Perfect knitters needles

I have recently found that by using the correct needles, for the particular job, it makes life so much easier. These needles are perfect length when using, with good eyes for threading. I now have these set aside solely with my knitting/crochet needles, so no longer have to go searching.

Doesn't it make life easier! Thanks your your amazing review Shona xx

Give it a go....

Had a ball doing this wee blanket, the squares are so much fun.
Loved the final look... thought crocheting the squares together as you go would be tricky, but works great.... Give it a go!
