To launch the season for natural dyeing and botanical printing, I set up the tents and dye stations and invited my sisters and friends to come and do some eco/botanical printing on paper over this past weekend.  It's a bit early in the season to have too much to work with, but we managed to get some interesting prints....and anyway, had a lot of fun gathering to do it even when the prints didn't come out as expected! Here is a representation of some of the pieces - for those who like color I broke out the natural dye from mollusks I picked up in Essouaria Morocco and the logwood my woodworking brother keeps me stocked with! And for those who like a more neutral aesthetic, I printed a few of the papers I made from mulberry trees when I visited Uzbekistan a couple of years ago using simply tannin.

I am offering a class on eco/printing papers in August and registration is now open. You can read more details under Classes.

Mitzi sent over a photo of what I've been referring to as her "happy" sweater.  I just think the color is so joyous and perfect for the spring!  She knit it using Cascade 220 and enjoyed it so much, she just bought a bag of the lighter weight version of the same yarn for another sweater! 

Cascade 220 has been around for a long time and is just a nice quality and great value 100% wool - hard to beat for a sweater.

Last month Dee adapted the popular Alaska Hat pattern from Ravelry into this wonderful cardigan for herself. I think I remember correctly that she used Rowan Felted Tweed. 


We knit the same Alaska Hat pattern (see Ravelry for the pattern) up for a store model using the Freia Minis.  I don't have the Freia Minis the website, but do have them available at the shop (along with the Freia SoleMates!) if you're interested in picking out a couple of colors.

And Mitzi sent along a photo of an amazing cabled sweater she knit for her son using Patagonia by Juniper Moon.
