Hello friends, I’d like to share with you the reason why I’ve been away from blogging for so long…I’ve opened up a new shop for my knitted creations.
Introducing Knitley Road! I’ve got a small number of items in the shop now and I’m working on creating more. I’m also trying to find a balance between knitting and playing with paper. Knitting takes much longer!
My vision for Knitley Road is accessories such as scarves, purses, brooches, mitts and a few other things I have in mind. I’m also going to feature some amazing yarn to make my creations; quite a bit of it has been imported from Italy and it’s just amazing!
Each day this week I’ll feature a set of items in the shop and over time, I’ll be sharing my WIP (work-in-progress) here on the blog. Knitley Road does have it’s own Facebook page, but the blog will be shared between A Paper Buffet and Knitley Road.
First up, are some knit flower brooches. These are made from 100% Egyptian cotton made in Italy, and is super soft. I bought a few balls in different colours to try them out, I usually don’t knit with cotton. But this knits up really well, and I have some ideas for new patterns and projects using this yarn.
Here’s the denim blue flower. I’ve knit each layer and then chosen a small rhinestone button for the centre

Here’s the grey flower, it’s like a dark slate grey.
Here’s a soft lilac flower, featuring a pearl and rhinestone button in the centre. I think I’m going to take some new pictures of this one, it was hard to photograph that day.
Each of these brooches look really great on a coat, scarf or even your favourite purse.
And all brooches have a locking bar pin on the back that’s been sewn onto a small small felt backing so it’s nice and secure.
Each brooch ships in a small gift box, so it’s perfect for gift giving.
You can shop these knit flower brooches here.
