It's Friday and I'm pretty happy about that. The weather is so beautiful today, after all those storms (our shed door was ripped off the hinges) and sleepless nights from roof tiles rattling it's such a relieve to have a still, calm AND sunny day. Feeling pretty lucky... 👉 Hop on over to IG Stories and I'll show the the Bay on IG live feed!

Out on the cliffs at Skaill yesterday with @rsharvey It was a pretty miserable day, (we came back home with soaking wet legs and soggy hats) but sometimes it's a good feeling to defy the weather and get out for some fresh air, no matter what. Plus a great excuse to go for hot chocolate after! Today will be slightly more chilled out I think...

We're back home and ready for the weekend. We have a post run this morning. 💌If you'd like any knitwear for the start of next week, please place your order before 10am and we'll have it out in the post today. Trips away are always such hard work but I always come back feeling inspired, motivated and really excited to get back to the studio. First things first, after a 1444 mile round trip, a weekend of R&R is definitely required. Hope you have a good one too. X

So much ❤ for London! As much as I love the country and the wildness of Orkney I do love being in the city, the morning commute and all the interesting people you meet in such a busy, creative and diverse city. Thank you everyone who came to see us at @scooplondonshow this week. All our friends from IG especially thank you for saying hello at the show, @instagram is so great for making it a small world. 〰 I am completely exhausted and can't wait to get back home now. There's a few days in Glasgow, with meeting for some projects in the pipeline and then I'm back off up the A9 and on the ferry home❤❤❤ Happy Valentines everyone. X

That moment when you have a photo on IG to share, and it doesn't quite sit with the rest of your IG feed but you want to share it anyway. 〰 @rsharvey sent me this pic today, taken a few days ago in Altnaharra. In high winter Altnaharra is often cut off from the main roads due to deep snow, so he got lucky this time don't you think?

We're having some major problems with the online shop just now. Our hosting provider has been down and we are unable to access any emails to hilarygrantknitwear.co.uk. 〰 If you're trying to get in touch please email us at hilarygrantdesign@gmail.com or through social media channels. All orders can be placed through email. 〰 We're really sorry about this and really disappointed with our hosting provider. We'll keep you updated. Thank you for your patience.

Absolutely bitter cold out on walk across Vaich Dam in the Highlands. There are so many hydro generator buildings dotted around the highlands, most look really Modernist/ Brutalist, like little concrete monoliths, and make for a really interesting contrast against the landscape. 〰〰〰 The online shop is still open, with Rob packing and shipping out all your orders over the next 10 days, while I'm in London. 💌

Wave Blankets, Pom Hats and Circle Scarves in our signature yellow are back in stock! 💛💛💛Free UK shipping and flat rate EU / Rest of World Shipping. 〰 💌

Hello furry boy.

I could watch this over and over... had such a busy week of running around and working late nights. I'm so ready to chill out now. Happy Friday! 🍻*clink*

Looking back to the weekend when @rsharvey and I were out on the beach at Honeysgeo. This time next week I'll be on my way to London for buyer appointments for next winter! 〰 Does anyone have any good suggestions for exhibitions in London right now? The Tove Jansson exhibition at @thesouthbankcentre is definitely on my list! Photo by @rsharvey

It's dark, its cold, it's windy and I am going to be drinking ALL the tea today. 👊 I'll be wearing: thermals, 2 pairs of socks, jeans, long sleeved thermal tshirt, a jumper and an even bigger fluffy jumper that I don't wear outside in public because it makes me look like a yeti. Definitely not an #ootd worth sharing! Have a good one guys, keep warm.
