Member mosaic: Six Skeins

I can not knit or crochet for the life of me, so I am always slightly envious and a bit in awe of people like Steph of Six Skeins, for example. Steph creates gorgeous things with beautiful yarn in an array of luscious colours; these are just a few of the items she has made for her Etsy shop:

Clockwise from top left:
  • handknit cashmere cowl
  • hand dyed perran yarn
From Steph's shop profile...

"Living in Cornwall is magical - the patchwork fields, open skies, and awesome seascapes can't fail to inspire. The colours and moods of the seasons translate into my crafts - hand-dyed luxury yarns, one-off beaded jewellery sets, and hand-knitted or crocheted items. Things I love include collecting yarn and beads; watching the sun set over the sea with my family, and eating chocolate. Preferably all at the same time."

Visit Six Skeins to browse Steph's creations and take away a little of her Cornwall magic for yourselves! You can also find out more about Steph and her latest designs by following her blog here.
