Here’s to 2017!

I thought it would be fun to have a little look at the past year, as we get ready for the next!

Avana was your most favourite pattern, closely followed by Tales from the Isle of Purbeck, and Morning Mist.

And for the littleuns – Bracken remains a strong winner.

A quick look at my Instagram Best Nine shows me you guys love the mustard coloured knits as much as I do, and I’ve got lots more of that Indigo dyeing planned for this coming year!

Just like the the mild coastal climate where I live it feels like I’m skipping Winter a bit as Autumn blurs into Spring. The early months of 2018 already promise amazing teaching trips, and I’ve got my work cut out to start a very big and exciting natural dyeing project!

I’ve also been chipping away on something since early last year (ok, maybe end of 2016!!). It has gone a lot slower than I planned but life seems to be that way these days, and I’m always trying to find the balance between doing what I love, and it becoming ‘work’. I’m sure somebody smart out there said something about how good work cannot being rushed. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all bit by bit in the next few months!

Finally, I want to say a big thank you for all your support this last year – it means the world to me to be able to provide for my family while doing what I love. And I’m not just talking about financially. The flexibility of knitting and natural dyeing allow me to be with my ever-growing (sniff) daughter everyday, and to be there for my husband and a demanding dairy farming lifestyle…and you choosing to purchase one of my patterns makes all of that possible!
As a little thanks, I’ve just set up a “buy one pattern, and get one free” for all my independent patterns listed on ravelry! No coupon needed, just pop two patterns in your cart and it will figure the rest out for you!

(cheapest pattern will be free, discount runs until end of day January 10th PST!)
