My pace has slowed since my recent  sewing frenzy which stocked the market bins for the Christmas season. I’m so looking forward to the Fair this year and hoping to steal some time away from the market place to get around and experience the rest of the magic. See you there;

a shop update will follow the fair.


Post aquarium -sea-creature-seeking we ate snacks on a park bench overlooking the ocean, watched the fog lift and wondered if fog horns were some sort of creature. ah such sweet wonder, especially coming from the land where eels are rooted in the sand and the moon grows jelly… Little M talks about how he used to swim and play with a ball on his belly when he was a sea otter before he turned into Munroe. These 2 were rather silly this afternoon.

cotton projects

30 day challenges,creative community,home,woolens | Thursday, January 17th, 2013

i didn’t mean to but i stopped in at Maiwa the other day and picked up some organic cotton for a few simple seed stitch wash cloths.  seed stitch was new for me, very simple and rhythmic to knit over coffee at the cafe. i love a project that i can toss in my tote and finish here and there in a day. i’m hoping there’s enough of each colorway to make a match and then if i’m still into it i might try and knit those Pakucho organic cottons too. my current wash cloths are due for replacement! 

still need to block these to even out the stitches but i’ll wait until i’ve knit the others and block them all at once;

other ecologically sound projects on the to do list are both Abby’s reuseable hemp/cotton wipesand Natalie’s lavender skin toner. love those gals!

i don’t usually like to post so far in advance on a project and good thing i haven’t already because once upon a time this fisherman’s pullover was going to be for Little A and now it’s destined to be one for Little M. So far only 1 skein is wound and no pressure – i’ll see how smoothly the progress goes…

i’m not just daydreaming. i really am knitting – more misti alpaca caps (not sure what will become of that ball of lovely single strand soft merino yet);
