Knit Collection

blog knit items_9716 a

Today’s image is of a small collection of the knit items I create. The items include Coffee Sweaters, Coffee Mug Sweaters, Coffee Press Sweaters, Coffee Carpets, Wine Wraps, and fingerless mitts.

All items are hand knit and made of 100% Canadian produced wool that is milled in Alberta. The wool is hand dyed in natural dyes that I craft by hand; some of the dyes, such as marigold, I grow in my garden.

I photographed this image for use in a collective I am in the process of forming. I will share the details of the project here once all the details are finalized.

Items are available from me directly through the website, at Sunworks (Red Deer, Alberta) and at the Whyte Gallery Shop (Banff, Alberta, Canada).

Fingerless Mitts – New Hand Knit Items – Handcrafted in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada)

blog fingerless mitts_9320A brand new pair of fingerless mitts has just been completed. The mitts are made of 100% Canadian produced wool that has been hand dyed in natural dyes (marigold and madder).

The past week has been great for knitting and crochet. I am working on some new home items plus building up a supply of Coffee Sweaters for either the next order or perhaps to finally get a shop up on-line, one of the goals for 2015.

More New Knitting – Knit Gift Items Made in Alberta, Canada

naturally dyed knittingI completed another order of naturally dyed and hand knit items this evening. Coffee Sweaters, Coffee Mug Sweaters, and Coffee Press Sweaters will be off on a journey to the Whyte Museum Shop in Banff, Alberta. These items are perfect for the upcoming gift giving season. This latest grouping contains a few pieces I absolutely love, and now someone enjoying the Rockies can enjoy them too.
