Current #WIP

My current #WIP is a cozy, comfortable cable hat that I have made several times over. I am not one who likes to revisit the same pattern too often, but I do find this repetition and familiarity soothing right now.

Would you like to join me in a Chromite Cast-On? We are hoping to ship out all of the preorders for Chromite yarn by the end of next week and we would like to collectively do a fresh cast on and watch a movie all together! What do you think? I had planned to have a "Knitter's Who Act" Movie Night in the studio this month. Since that cannot happen right now, I thought it would be fun for us all to join in on a movie night cast-on! Planning for this to happen on Friday, April 24th. There will be chatting, knitting, movie watching and prizes- more details to come!

Pattern: Brackett Hat from Whitney Hayward Chromite on Elder, Cable Stitch Holders


NEW IN

Cable stitch holders, a 3-piece set, made in Japan.
These artfully crafted cable stitch holders are pretty!! Made of Japanese bamboo that goes through an extra process to harden and darken them, they are naturally waxed to keep stitches gliding smoothly.

BACK IN STOCK

Restock on the Knitter's Backpack in Tree Bark! I have been taking my knitting out with me on my daily hikes and finding quiet spots to sit down and work a few rows. I hope that you are finding time to be outdoors and get some fresh air. I have found it to be pretty important for me to not only get some movement but also just for the change of scenery!

LEARN-TO-KNIT

I know that many of us are super grateful for our craft right now! Being able to knit has helped with my anxiety and keeping my hands busy is just a really good thing for me. I have uploaded some basic learn-to-knit videos to my YouTube channel and you can view them here. If you are a subscriber who doesn't knit, now is a great time to give it a try! If you have friends who would appreciate picking up this skill, you can share this information with them. I also listed a basic Learn-to-Knit Kit here that includes a skein of climate-beneficial, bulky wool yarn and a pair of beautifully crafted single point birch needles to help you (or a friend) get started.


VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS

I have set up an online scheduling tool so that you can make an appointment to connect virtually! I have free 15 minute slots available to those learning how to knit and needing one-on-one instruction. I have also opened up free 30 minute appointments for those who would like to have a video call to shop for yarn! In these appointments we can help you choose yarn for your next project or answer any questions you might have about our products. I look forward to seeing some of you in this new way!


LIVE CHAT

At the bottom right hand corner of my webshop, there is a new feature that allows us to be able to communicate in real time. We can chat with you about yarn selections, help you with your online order or answer any questions you may have. Give it a try!


Things I like  🖤

Update on the robe search! I asked around for the best robe to buy, and a lot of people said this one from Parachute Home. It doesn't disappoint!! 

If you want to learn more about reading tarot @Laetitia.cartomancy is offering some really cool online classes!

I've been thinking a lot about how to support artists right now. One of my very favorite tattoo artists, Rachel Hauer (she is also a knitter!!!!) is offering drawing commissions. Check out this post for more details and some pictures of what she has been working on.
