Hello, my name is Andrea from Northern Ireland. I am an enthusiastic machine knitter but am interested in all things woollen. I am an active member of the NI Machine Knitters Guild which has renewed my interest in machine knitting. I own a standard Brother 940 electronic knitting machine and a Brother Chunky. I also hand knit and love looking at new wools and patterns.

12th Day of Christmas
This is my last day of Christmas and I have shown you 12 of my best items which I have made in the past 12 months. This is the latest item which I have made and I am really pleased with it. It is hand knit in 2 different wools, a soft luxurious Artesano Alpaca and Louisa Harding Willow Tweed. The bag is therefore more versatile as it has 2 different sides. I lined it with dark orange which shows through the lace leaves. I hope you like it.
