Victoria from Refined Knits

I am so thrilled to share some photos with you of Victoria, one of the patterns from Jennifer Wood's upcoming book Refined Knits. Not only is this design beautiful and exactly my style, it's knit in our very own Messa di Voce yarn in Chimney Smoke!

I've been working with Jennifer for several years now and I know how much time and energy she's put into this book and getting everything just right. I can't wait to see Refined Knits in person!

One of our big goals for Sweet Paprika this year was to source a new line of Canadian wool yarns. We started contacting farms and mills last January, researching options, connecting with farmers, and collecting samples.

Eventually we settled on working with wool from Circle R Livestock, a family farm in southern Ontario. Over the spring we worked out the details to have the wool milled in New Brunswick, and we then spent the summer doing dye tests and creating colour recipes for our new Winfield (worsted) and Sutton (bulky) yarn lines.

Mending, sewing, crafting

by Elizabeth Sullivan July 15, 2019 1 Comment

Lately a lot of my crafting inspiration has come from my son, who is growing and needs things, and from my goal to live more gently on this earth and think twice before buying and using things.
