Along with most of the members of the TEMPTU office, I have been trying to eat and act more healthy lately. Normally this would be hard enough, but now there is an enormous candy bowl ever overflowing with all my favorite goodies living on a certain coworker’s desk. How does one resist this ever present office temptation? Snuggle with it!
That’s right I said snuggle. Thanks to the wool works of Kate Jenkins you can now snuggle with your vices. Smokers, drinkers, and over eaters can now cuddle up with a humorous crocheted version of their favorite dirty little pleasures.
Kate’s specialty is amazingly lifelike crocheted food, and other pieces inspired by everyday items. From sushi to wine, fruit to fuzzy animals, Kate’s handiwork is impressive. Based in Brighton, UK Kate’s background is in fashion, designing for prestigious labels like Donna Karan, Sonia Rykiel and Missoni. Kate established her company Cardigan to fulfil her philosophy that anything can be created from yarn as long as it is made with love.
