Within these pages you will find the exclusive hand knitted creations from Carole's collection that we have available in stock or have created and could recreate again.

The garments that are in stock are available for purchase on board "Emma Maye" or can be purchased through our on line shop here.

Please be aware that there may be slight colour variation between what you see on your computer screen and the actual garment.

Page updated 17th June 2018 with a new Harmony sleeveless jumper, available as a commission. 

Each of Carole's Creations is a truly unique garment or item.

Even though we have a experienced team of hand knitters, each one knits slightly differently form each other, and each garment will be created from a different dye number of the same shade of yarn, which can introduce subtle colour changes.

Of course if you can't find anything in our present collection that is to your taste please visit us regularly as our stock is constantly evolving, or you may want to consider commission Carole to create you own truly exclusive garment.

In the following list please click on the yellow text to take you to our on line shop where you will find further details, a picture and a price for the garment.

                                           A life in Motorbikes scarf  

Carole was contacted by a chap from Wigan who over the years has owned a number of motorbikes. He wondered if Carole would be able to create him a scarf with blocks of colour representing each of the motorbikes. He had start with a Honda C90 which was red and his current bike is grey, with another eight in between, with significant initials on the white end piece.

Carole has knitted the scarf from an acrylic yarn and the finished scarf was about 7inch wide and 7 feet long and the chap was made up with it.

Having thought about this a bit the idea could be expanded to perhaps represent your life in cars, lorries, scooters, houses, boats, holidays, favourite T V programme, thinking Blue Peter here, or anything that you have had a few of and can be represented by a colour.

If you have a idea of what you think would make a good colourful scarf please get in touch via colinandcarolescreations@yahoo.co.uk or give us a ring on 07931 356204 and Carole will discuss the possibility and give you a price which will depend on length and the amount of colours to be used.

Life in Motor bikes scarf 


This was quite an interesting project.

I created this Christmas jumper following a request from the "Duggies" out of school club at Parbold Douglas C of E primary school when the pupils were asked to design their own Christmas jumper.

I was asked to go and pick the winning design which was created by Beatrice a year 3 pupil.

The job then was to design the pattern from the winning picture, get it created in time to be presented to Beatrice before the end of term.
