Who has a fav knitting spot 🙋🏼♀️
I’m knitting Queen Bees like a mad woman for Xmas gifts. Yep, I said it...Christmas knits are well underway AND I found mince pies in the shops yesterday (it’s never too early!) so I’m feeling hyped and happy for the seasonal changes 🍁

My craft connects me to the past. Weaving, spinning, natural dyeing and knitting are how our ancestors kept themselves warm and clothed for thousands of years. Its only been the past 200 years that this way of life has fallen out of fashion due to factories and modern luxury. Now all of this is a hobby. Only kept alive by folks like us. 💛🌿
When I was a kid and watched Toy Story, I was convinced it was real and was certain my toys had a life of their own.⠀
I'm still pretty certain these pots have their own lives, hopes, & dreams. I think this blue one dreams to be your favorite coffee cup 😉✨
These skeins together remind me of Blue Ridge on a beautiful summer morning. 💙🌿

S L O W | What does slow fashion mean? It means designing and producing with mindfulness and intention, but as we are learning, sometimes it means not producing at all. Often it requires commitment, patience and occasionally sacrifice. As we pause in the making of our knitted pieces this season, we invite you to join us in our journey as we search for the perfect yarn (made with traceable, sustainable wool! 🙌🏻). Find a new post on our journal (Link in profile) and learn more about our decision to do things the slow way, and hopefully the right way. 📷 by Anna Dianich, owner of our local yarn shop @toltyarnandwool and of this beautiful sheep. ❤️🐑
Wrap yourself in this Siwash shawl by @_redheadnata. This indulgent shawl recalls the wilderness around British Columbia with its branchy vines and bobbles. Find this pattern in #BHSIssue7 and create your own using either worsted weight or DK yarn. The one pictured here is knit in @sweetgeorgia‘s stunning Cypress colorway! This book is available for pre-order now through the link in our bio.

Ironweed: purple flower, purple tinted dye, turns out green or yellow. 💛🌿
Part of the fun (also the frustration) of natural dyes is the unpredictability of it. You always go into a dye pot never certain of the color you’ll get, but always hopeful.
Last week @kkiliszek photographed me at work. The pictures that came back are so gorgeous and so valuable to a business as tiny as mine. This super talented, lovely lady really did capture some sweet moments from our morning together. I’ll share a few more here after the weekend.
Thank you Clare @foxandfeatheruk for helping to make this opportunity possible.
L E D E R T O T E // Bevor sich mein Hirn dann nur noch mit Babykrams beschäftigt, hier noch zwei Werke aus meinem Studio. Ich hab zum ersten Mal mit Leder genäht. Es ging mehr schlecht als recht, gut dass die Nähte innen und somit quasi unsichtbar sind. Und obwohl ich meine Bernina liebe: Ich bin mir fast sicher, dass es an der Nähmaschine liegt, die dafür einfach nicht gemacht ist. Habt ihr Empfehlungen für Industrienähmaschinen, die auch Leder gut nähen? Juki, Pfaff? Welche Modelle? Trotzdem bin ich mit dem Ergebnis übrigens ganz zufrieden. Ein kleines Täschchen gabs auch noch dazu. Und die Vögel an der Wand sind vom Lederverschnitt und nicht extra ausgeschnitten fürs Foto, ich schwör!
