Big Knit with the Happy Snail

We’re holding regular events at our shop in Wigtown, Scotland’s National Book Town. Our latest one involved Fran Raw who is our current artist in the back room – a feature we’ve introduced to showcase local talent. Fran goes under the title of Happy Snail Crafts and as a textile artist she creates fabulous hats, mitts and ear warmers in a range of wonderful colours. She spent Saturday afternoon showing visitors to the shop how to knit with giant needles and it proved to be a lot of fun. So much fun in fact that we’ve invited her back and she’ll be returning next month for more giant knitting. Fran is hoping to knit a really, really long scarf and she made a great start knitting enough to wrap round one of our young knitters – so we decided to style her as a carrot as you can see in our picture.
