Prick Your Finger, a Snowman and BUST’s Holiday Craftacular!

Written by Saven Chadha

Not only do we all love Prick Your Finger here at Amelia’s, we absolutely adore the snowman that’s gracing the shop window at the moment!
Inspired by the recent snowfall in the Lake District, where owner Rachel Harris originiates from, the snowman has been constructed out of their Swaledale Ropey and DK (90p for 10g).

Prick Your Finger, for those of you who haven’t heard, is a quaint haberdashery shop on Globe Road in Bethnal Green opened by Rachel Matthews and Louise Harries. Full of beautiful knitwear and yarns, the shop demands a visit from anyone interested in all things unique and textile. The shop boasts everything from homespun yarns, upholstery yarns and chunky yarns made from their own sheep! The girls are wonderfully hands-on; doing everything in the store from mending old fabrics to building the shop fittings and laying the flooring themselves.

BUST is a magazine devoted to the female. Providing an unapologetic view of life in the female lane, they break down stereotypes! Based in the US and established in 1993, the magazine addresses a variety of different issues within pop sulture, including music, fashion, art & crafts and news.
Editor-in-Chief, Debbie Stoller, decided to call the magazine BUST, because it was “aggressive and sexy and funny… It was a title that could belong to a men’s porn magazine.”
