With just one set of mittens to go, I'm finally getting to stitching together linings that promise to keep the cold air out this winter. Sewing is not my specialty - tips and tricks would be well appreciated.

This is second set of mittens I've spun up for sale this fall. They're made with eco-friendly wool and are embroidered especially for lovers of sailing, stripes, and burly men in uniform.

I'm wrapping up work on a collection of mittens for sale this fall! These key mittens come in brown, beige, black, red, and navy. It's one of four pattens I've been prepping. More to come....

made in Canada

I spent the weekend at a county fair an hour’s drive east of Montreal. Amidst the animals, preserves, handicrafts, and everything else that gives a fair its charms, I came across a couple selling home-grown, hand-dyed, hand-spun sheep’s wool. I picked out five beautifully coloured skeins of thick and sturdy yarn from Hatley, QC. This material feels and smells more hearty and natural than any fibre I’ve worked with, and I’m delighted to be adding local wools to my collection.
