Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishment #1

I moved house. On July 1st. In Montreal. In the middle of a heatwave. July 1st is the traditional moving day in Quebec which means that a ridiculous number of people are all trying to move house at the same time.

So far in my 10 years in Montreal I'd managed to avoid taking part in this tradition, but not this move. I've never before had to book a moving company four months in advance or move in at the same time as someone else is still moving out. At one point I think there were about 18 people in the apartment - absolute madness. But we survived, and although there's still quite a lot of unpacking to do, I'm quite enjoying exploring our new neighbourhood.

And I'm looking forward to having my loom in a nice sunny corner with all my houseplants!

Accomplishment #2

I finished my Pizzicato Pinstripe socks and Debbie and I did the photoshoot for the pattern today. The pattern is written and ready to go, so we just need to do the last layout edits and proofread and it will be ready to publish! And I have enough yarn left paired with some other leftovers to make my son a pair of socks, so he's very happy.

Fifteen Years of Sweet Paprika!
Fifteen Years of Sweet Paprika!

par Debbie Sullivan juillet 30, 2022 6 Commentaires

This year we're celebrating Sweet Paprika's 15th anniversary, and it's honestly been a bit hard to get my head around where the time has gone! We've been looking back through some of our old photos, and thought it would be fun to share a little retrospective here. Our little business has come a long way in the past 15 years!

Most of the images I'm including are not our polished product photos (although those have also come a long way since the early days), but more of a behind-the-scenes look at some of the memorable stepping stones along our journey.

"Year of Gnomes" Contest: Help Us Gname a Gnome!

par Debbie Sullivan février 23, 2022 36 Commentaires

Last December, just as we were shutting down the dye studio for a holiday break, we got an email from one of our favourite customers telling us all about an upcoming event we might want to look into: the Year of Gnomes Knit-Along. We loved the idea, and couldn’t resist joining in by dyeing up some mini-skein Gnome Sets for you to play with. We ordered in some special yarn as soon as we got back to work in January, and our Gnome Sets are now ready to head on out into the world!
