why i've been so absent!


oh dear, this poor neglected blog and poor neglected fledgling business.

i have been rather busy...submitting my PhD thesis and juggling that with an incredibly busy, but fun, day job helping to buy and sell luxury jets for a swiss consultancy!

it will be a while before i have any news regarding figs and roses since i am now taking some time to recover, soak up lake life in the summer and travel to ischia and corsica. some well deserved holidays!!

if you read my other blog, you will know all the news but, if you don't, here are some photos to sum up the final day:


more stories to follow on the other blog regarding submitting, celebrating and wonderful swiss life.

it's been a while...

gosh, i realised i haven't posted for almost three months! life has been busy and wonderful and i am knitting more than ever but the official launch of figs and roses will have to wait a while as i am tied up with other things at the moment - mainly my PhD!

but i have been knitting every day and love it more than ever. i am very pleased to share the latest three cowls i have been working on. the first one is currently winging its way to an excited customer (the first in fact)!


each of the cowls are designed by madeline tosh and i aslo use madeline tosh yarn. the colours are antler, french grey and winter wheat (mustard). madeline tosh has very kindly giveb me permission to sell cowls knitted using her design so i am thrilled.

i will be sure to update you with more knitting news before the next three months is up!

a belated happy new year to you all from figs and roses HQ x
