This blog delights in putting together two arts or crafts not normally associated – today we have three.
Spotted in the blog by the Shetlands based knitting designer, Ella Gordon! She took motifs from her knitted hat/mittens to be made into a ring by jewellery-maker Mike of Red Houss in Barra. Having made the ring in the morning, they then took a piece of beachcombed broken pottery and made that into a second ring.

The knitting motif:
This motif is also available directly from Ella as a cushion: fully knitted, sewn up and stuffed for £40. There are a whole variety of colourways and slight difference in the ouse – what a great idea to commission one for someone who once lived (or lives) in a traditional house.
