And finally… Stick to your knitting



An Aberdeen entrepreneur has received a £10,000 cash boost from the Scottish Edge awards for her knitting app.

Lucy Fisher was awarded the funding for her Knit It app which features knitting patterns, tools, tutorials and more to make it easier for young people to embrace knitting as a new hobby.

She hopes to use the funding to create her first product, the KnitPic Kit which will allow people to turn their photographs into a knitting pattern, The Press and Journal reports.

Ms Fisher said: “It’s really nice to be recognised for all the hard work we have put in.”
