Working out weave structures, motifs and colours for my new mini collection today. Inspired in part by lovely fair isle knitting but mostly by these ‘Fair Isles’ of Aotearoa.
So far so good but, still some way to go.
At lunchtime, I went for a little walk around Founders park and was wowed by this sight. The deep pink blossom carpet on a cloudy day just made me smile – and feel blessed that my studio is situated in such a pretty heritage park.
Our Little Beehive has a new Facebook online shop. Just a couple of products from each co-op member at the moment but a it’s a beautiful selection of hand made goodness. Free postage within New Zealand too. I have this soft denim blue striped scarf for sale and a twin pack circle weaving kit. …so check it out here:
I’ll be there on Sunday looking after the Little Beehive Co-op stall. So why not come down, say hello and enjoy a little handmade Christmas shopping plus heaps of special treats.
I’ve been feeling very festive in the studio this week – totally excited by lots of beautiful yarns – golds, creams, textured whites, sparklies and bright jewel colours. Here are some little hand woven decorations currently in progress.
