Peggy May Yarns originated from my late nanny called Peggy May. Growing up she was the one to teach me to knit and I taught her to crochet. She used to knit all of the families garments and she didn't even need a pattern a lot of the time. She would sit with her knitting needles and wool and just start the garment.
She raised a family of six children, so back then knitting is what clothed a lot of them. I remember her telling me a story of when the jumpers and cardigans got too small, after being passed down the family, she would then pull out the garment to re use the wool.
I have one of her cardigans she made and will have to take a photograph of it and show you all.
So it is in her memory why I started my business. I would like to think she would have been proud to have been the inspiration behind my knitting and yarn dyeing career.
I have won a few awards including Theo Paphitis of Dragon Den's fame Small business Sunday #SBS and Jacqueline Gold CBE's #WOW award.
I will be sharing some of my latest makes with you all, if you would like to see anything in particular from me then please leave a comment and let me know.
