KNITTING FROM THE NORTH

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have already seen that this year I was working on an exciting project for Orkney based knitwear designer Hilary Grant. Hilary has written a knitting book called Knitting from the North in which she has translated her most popular patterns from her luxury Scottish knitwear range into 30 colourful hand-knitting projects – hats, mittens, scarves and jumpers – and back in February I flew up to a freeeeezing cold Orkney and we photographed all the products with our brilliant models Louise and Vendala. Here is just a tiny selection of some of my favourite shots.
