Hello and I hope you are well! It has been awhile. I am SO inconsistent, especially because I have been drawn into a place and time sans social media or blogging or even e-mail. Of my own choosing... I didn't go to an off-grid camp or anything like that (although.. I would love to :))! … Continue reading Dyeing Wool with Mushrooms!
Hello 🙂 I wanted to share a few pictures of the latest Pangur Bán sweater. I have it all ready to be shipped off to California but wanted to document it as much as possible! It's a funny thing, dedicating countless hours to knitting a garment and then shipping them off to their new homes - … Continue reading Hazel Heather Pangur Bán Handknit Sweater
Hi out there Earthlings and Fae Folk! ** It's now a windy Saturday morning - I wrote this yesterday afternoon with the weather so different than this morning. It's strange posting a journal like blog post when you feel so incredibly different than the day before - however I'm going to leave it as it … Continue reading Simple Knits & Slower Days
And it's back. A foot of snow, freezing temperatures... the chickens refuse to leave the coop and boots full of snow. We can at least take heart that it is technically *spring* and this won't last. But for now, my nose is running and my feet are damp. I feel like watching The Ken … Continue reading Preparing Shop Orders & More Snow

This past holiday weekend, Meaghan, Reg, Jamie, Henry and I drove up to Cape Breton Island to stay in a cabin. It has been a dream of mine to see the Cabot Trail in the snow but have always thought it not practical because of the unpredictable nature of the weather at this time … Continue reading Winter in Cape Breton
On Saturday, I wrote about my peaceful mornings. Filled with tea, knitting, scents and animals. Winter is so unpredictable in Eastern Canada that I feel like we see the moon more than the sun. And then there are winter storm mornings that stay for days and nights. There is something about blizzards and winter storms … Continue reading Blizzard & Knitting Progress
J A N U A R Y This month was strange in a sense. I feel like the whole world is in chaos and I am merely turned to the fringes - looking to the stars, the moon and the earth. Withdrawing further and further. I've always felt that the best form of protest … Continue reading January
Today on PEI, we are snowed into our homes. The province essentially shut down. We do however have power (amazing!) so I think it is the best time to discuss the Riddari Knitting Kit GiveAway! We are very excited to have partnered up with Alafoss to offer you a chance to win a Riddari knitting kit! … Continue reading Riddari Knitting Kit Give Away!
This week, the Pangur Bán sweater will be bound up with twine, placed in a cloth hand-sewn bag and shipped to Germany. Across the Atlantic Ocean, leaving behind its humble beginning on Prince Edward Island. This original sweater was made during the summer of 2016 using Létt-Lopi that I purchase online at Alafoss. What you may ask is … Continue reading “So in peace our task we ply, Pangur Bán, my cat, and I…”
