What could be more lovely than a pair of handknit fingerless gloves, in the colour of your choice and with a fair isle design of your favourite thing? With a long cuff to keep your wrists warm and giving freedom to your thumb and fingers so you can use your phone or scratch your nose. Here are some examples of ones I have made, with bats, bees, acorns, dogs, hearts, foxes or no pattern, just your favourite colours. I make them to order in 2 adult sizes (€20)and also in a child size(€15). Post is usually €2
Hand knit in pure wool and stuffed with organic fleece, a special series of bears, no two the same! €20 each and postage extra

Broc Nollaig, new for Christmas 2019, creating a new tradition of a Christmas Badger. These little fellows join the Christmas hedgehog and look great hanging from a tree or from a car mirror. They are light and easy to post and very soft as they are stuffed with lamb fleece. Some have Santa hats and some are glittery but all are very cute
This is the organic farm where the wool I use to stuff my creations comes from. It is a beautiful family farm on the banks of the river Shannon in Leitrim. Sometimes they have to hand rear a lamb or two and I enjoyed meeting this one yesterday. Spending time with this family and seeing their love and respect for nature is always inspiring.
I was lucky enough to be involved in a project last Autumn called inthemaking. This was run by Leitrim Design House and through workshops, photo shoots and a videoing session in my home it gave me the push I needed to create this website and to be more confident in my work. Here is the short film by Padraig Cunningham of Pure Design Studios.
Over the last wee while I’ve been working on a joint project with my brother and I think between us we have created something special. Niall (Fuinnseog Woodland Crafts) turned a hub from spalted beech and attached 8 spokes of carved ash. I hung some bees and ladybirds to create a mobile and as you can see in the video it moves very nicely
