Knit One, Purl One

Annie by Amy knitwear

A photo shoot has been mentioned here and there on this blog and on Twitter, so I thought it was time to finally spill the beans and share it with you. A while back the lovely Amy asked me to shot her range of handmade kintwear and the shoot itself took place a few weeks ago.

Amy is a wonderful friend – we actually studied the same course but didn’t meet each other until after we graduated. We watch Gossip Girl together and she’s a must-have companion to take to vintage fairs. A couple of years ago we went to an indoor picnic at the Trinity Centre and both learnt how to knit. We were both a bit rubbish but where I gave up, Amy persevered, and has since mastered every stitch under the sun, knitting hats, scarves and mittens whenever she has a spare minute. The culmination of this is Annie by Amy, her blog and now knitwear label.

I had so much fun shooting Amy’s pieces, despite the rubbish weather on the day. It helps that model Leanne was gorgeous and so willing to go all out to get the right shot. Our friend Naomi also assisted and while the four of us running around Redland must have looked quite a sight, we had so much fun.

Amy has blogged about the shoot here, where you can also find prices for scarves and bobble hats. She can also knit a scarf or hat on commission so do get in touch with her if you want one of these beauties this winter. I’ve got my eye on a camel coloured scarf and a navy bobble hat – which one do you like?
