erika knight and brickett davda yarn bowls

6th August 2015

Keep your yarn moving freely and easily with these beautiful yarn bowls, lovingly crafted exclusively for erika knight by British artisan ceramicist Brickett Davda (Calvin Klein, Nicole Farhi, Toast).

Each piece is pressed into a mould by hand rather than thrown on a wheel, so within each bowl there are irregularities and imperfections that show the hand of the creator. Natural earthenware base with a subtle glaze in four delicious colours that compliment the carefully considered colours of the erika knight yarn collection.

Regia Design Line – Jazz Colours

1st August 2015

The REGIA Design Line offers unique Special Editions in REGIA colour – with exceptional, individual colourings and effects from the hand of the designer.

I have long loved the iconic Regia brand, known for its quality yarn and innovative effects. I love too, the concept that you can simply take a ball of Regia yarn, follow the easy knitting instructions and a patterned sock appears with no tricky techniques to master!

With a passion for fashion, and especially for great accessories, I love that little pieces can instantly update your existing clothes at very little cost and that you can make them yourself.

So, I wanted to create some basic yet seasonal essentials, not only socks, but also long fingerless mittens and a funky pull on hat in this little signature collection. For the yarn colour effects, I have taken inspiration from another passion of mine, Jazz music, with threes traditional and three random contemporary colour fusions.



Pattern book and yarns available from REGIA retailers, including Deramores.
