A few days ago I visited a lovely lady who makes our wonderful knitted cardigans, to get to her factory/house, we walked down a narrow street, shoes off at the door and up some creaking stairs we went to find a woollen paradise!

She absolutely loves what she does and this reflects on the amazing garments she creates!
