Vintage Life Magazine Feature

I have always enjoyed reading the Vintage Life Magazine and I am a member on their forum  vintage network too.  Much to my delight I was approached by them and asked to write a knitting article which included a knitting pattern for a pair of slippers.  I enjoyed this immensely and I quickly went out and bought the magazine last thursday 27th October which is now available in Sainsburys as well as W H Smith stores.  It was lovely to see my name in print and featured in a magazine I have enjoyed for such a long time.  There are always lots of gorgeous features and pictures in the magazine including the wonderful Betty Bee who always has lovely features in the magazine.  She also has a great blog which I am sure everyone would love reading it is one of my favourite blogs Betty Bee 

I would love to know if anyone has had a go at making the slippers in my feature in the magazine if so please email me and I will feature them on my blog.

I also had some lovely tweets from lots of people congratulating me on being featured two of them here are from Theo Paphitis from Dragons Den and the very lovely Brix Smith-Start who has worked with Gok Wan on Gok's Fashion Fix and owns the fabulous Start London Boutique

I am now getting ready for my photo shoot this weekend and looking forward to working with some lovely people.  My next blog will show you the behind scenes photographs of the photo shoot, which I hope you all find interesting.

Poppy Brooch - British Forces Network

I have had the honour of working and helping the British Forces Network.  I have designed a poppy brooch made from chunky yarn and this is now available to buy through my website Peggys Collection Each poppy will be handmade and completely unique and slightly different every time.  All proceeds will go to the British Forces Network.  I will also be releasing the knitting pattern shortly for the poppy so you could even make your own poppy too and show your support that way.
