There is really no feeling like casting on something new! As I helped my friend (who is new to knitting) begin a project this week and saw how excited she was, it just reminded me how that feeling really never goes away!
I cast on The Uniform Cardigan this week as a sort of replacement to the store bought sweater I am wearing here. I already know it is going to be a big part of my wardrobe and I am so excited to have it in squishy Elder!
I have also just reignited my interest in sewing! Are you a sewist? I seem to always lose it in the finishing and I am trying really hard to slow down and not rush through the entire process. Any tips for a newbie?! You can always reply to this email (and I'll get it!).
Well the 2020 Astrological Planners went very quick! I just added a few more to the webshop if you missed it the first time around. There are also beautiful lined journals that complement the planners in both black and fawn.
If you are looking for a gift for a maker or hinting at a gift for yourself (but would still like to be surprised!) check out our "What Does Your Maker Make" listings! Our holiday cut-off is December 16th.
We have digital gift cards that can be purchased at any time!
Things I like 🖤
Are you finding time to care for yourself during this busy season? Here are some things I plan to do just for me:
-Take a solo walk and drink a cup of my very favorite chai that I can make at home
-Work on a rhythmic, melodic knit like the Clementine Cowl using Spincycle Dyed in the Wool & Maven. Or cast on a familiar pattern that I've made so many times that I have it memorized!
-Pop a gift for myself under the Solstice Tree!
P.S. Having the Zodiac Collection as a constant source of inspiration this past year has been amazing! I think what I enjoyed most (besides getting a deeper understanding of all the individual signs) was having something steady to work on. I have been thinking a lot about what is next and cannot wait to share my new ideas with you!
