August update

Scottish Borders

Our August update starts as each morning does, with a nice field walk with Ruaridh Dog. When time seems to be going super quickly, these moments of calm really help me to keep perspective. We often see hares, pheasants and deer close to our house, hence the reason to keep R-dog on the lead.  A morning chase does not equal tranquility!

Hope Women

In the Wonky factory we have been working on these new hats for Hope Women.

Hope WMN was created by Hope Technology to support women who ride bikes.  Their website includes interesting articles from inspiring women, alongside their list of events and their shop. These super bright hats will be available on the Hope Women website soon!

Wool Blankets

We have also been experimenting with different types of wool and stitch formations to create a blanket.

This one is made with merino lambswool using a moss stitch to provide texture.  It works as a shawl, a picnic blanket, as part of your solo adventure pack or you could give it to your dog!
