The customer’s response when it arrived was “Hi Carole My sleeveless hoodie arrived today, I have been wearing it all afternoon, it is absolutely fantastic! I love the details like the cable pattern and it fits me perfectly! The wool is lovely too, very warm but also soft to the touch. The big woolly hood is such a great idea, it makes such a difference as I found when I walked to the shops earlier, I put the hood up as I left the house and it really kept me warm, I thought I would leave it down to walk back home but I couldn’t resist popping it up again, it is so cosy! Thank you I am really delighted with hoodie” If you would like one knitting for you now is a good time as Carole hasn’t got a lot of orders on and quite a bit of time. All the information regarding size etc we can do over the internet or the phone and depending on size the cost would be about £60 plus delivery. e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 07931 356204.
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 email@example.com 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.
