Strange Brew!

We took a journey deep into our own colour imaginations to create this new collection.

Then we packed up our families (and loads of yarn) and headed on an epic adventure around Iceland to photograph the knits against the stunning mountains, seascapes, waterfalls, and dramatic geology of this special place.

Emily and I mostly work an ocean and an 8 hour time change apart, so it's a real treat to be in the same place at the same time. This year we enjoyed a Bizmoon in Paris, seeing the sights, eating delicious things, chatting all things TCK over coffee, and, of course, photographing new designs!

We have 4 new lacy pattern to share with you, Love Note, Posy, and the Penny sweater and hat.

Beloved Bonnet






Oaken shawl & blanket

For Alexa and I, as the weather in Vancouver and Edinburgh turns cool, we prepare for greyer, shorter, and wetter days. Our kids are back to school, and we are re-establishing the working routines that we set aside for a few golden summer weeks.

Cooler weather also brings the excitement of new, cozier knits, and a desperate urge to cast on something new! If you're feeling the same we have a new pattern, Oaken, which includes a instructions for big cozy shawl and a lovely lace blanket!
