I stumbled upon this store just now, so I thought I'd share, not only do I love her felt fascinators, I also love the style of her store, just like the felt head pieces, it's a warm and interesting vibe.

This past week my lovely friend Mary who runs the wemake brand, http://wemakelondon.blogspot.com/p/summer-boutique-designers.html opened up her first pop up shop in Hamsptead, I took a little trip there on Saturday afternoon, to have a peep at all the wonderful handmade goodies. and of course to show some support to Mary.
Wow I was impressed, down a little alley in Hampstead heath, was this stunning looking shop, inside was a cavern of wonderful handmade goodies from British artist.
I was truly impressed with Marys efforts, whilst holding down a full time job, she's managed to organise over 50 artists, setup and run a shop for 8 days, keep a blog, make her jewellery and bring the world of handmade to the label loving mothers of Hampstead Heath,
The shop did a storm, and the cafe next door was thrilled with their extra business due to having wemake in town. Hats of to Mary XO
I treated myself to a little chain bracelet, which sits tight on my wrist almost like a cuff. http://uncommonlybeautifulrecycledaccessories.bigcartel.com/
This will definitely brighten up your winter wardrobe, I love this shade, it's so vibrant, and strong. This was a custom order, which I wasso happy to have gotton the chance to see this shade knitted into the shrug. personally I think it looks lush.
So when I first bought the bamboo yarn, this was the tank I had in mind to knit, until of course I got caught up in a whirl of knitting all those shrugs.
I saved this last lot of greyish/blue yarn for this tank, and I'm pretty happy that I did, and finally took the time to knit it up 12 months later.
