Showing La Cave à Laine

You are sitting by the fire (or at the beach, depending on the hemisphere you live in), needles clicking away, ready to bind off your latest project, and pondering what to cast on next.

You could cast on anything, but why not cast on a beautiful shawl that will be sitting perfectly on your shoulders, or a quick hat, fun to knit and worth your knitting time?

Yes, exactly!

All my knitting patterns feature special attention to yarn usage, clear instructions and marvellous knitting time.

You will have fun while knitting one of my patterns, being assured to have in your hand a well written and clear set of instructions: each one is worth your knitting time!

I love to play with details, fit and versatility, and you can be confident you will knit a timeless piece of your wardrobe!

For the whole month of December 2022, enjoy 50% off all my patterns (no code needed)!
And you can also send one to someone you love, always 50% off!

This year I have created various Gift Guides to help you choose gift for all your friends, whether they are knitters or non-knitters!

Starting with the friends who are not knitters , but who like nice stuff, our selection of handcrafted bags is perfect to show them your love!

And then I imagined various situations you could find yourself in, with your knitter friends:
– Gifts for the friend you don’t know very well: a selections of gift under 20€
– Gifts for the friend who has all the latest gadgets, but maybe not some unusual one
– Gifts for the friend who has 10 (or more) projects going at one time
– Gifts for the friend who uses only plastic bags (ehm…)
– Last minutes gifts that do not require shipping

I have created a guide for every situation, with many ideas for all your gifts this holiday season!

Welcome to a new year of La Società delle Giardiniere, our secret club of surprise boxes that will delight you throughout 2023! This year’s theme is Tools, Notions & More!

Once upon a time, in a country, but not yet a nation, called Italy, there was a secret society composed only by women: La Società delle Giardiniere, The Club of Women Gardeners. La Società delle Giardiniere was the female branch of Carboneria, a network of secret revolutionary societies active in Italy at the beginning of the 19th century. Their main goal and aim was to free Italy from oppressors and reunite the peninsula in a unique nation, which happened in 1861.

The Republic of Italy, as we know it nowadays, was established in the aftermath of World War II, in 1946, after an historical referendum that saw, for the first time, women voting.

As always the history of women is neglected in most history books.

For many reasons women do not make it to the short or longer version of history. Women are almost invisible. Most of the time women were working behind the scenes, in secret, covered up in crinoline and tea parties, surrounded by children.

This year I invite you to discover with me the stories of four women, with four surprise boxes dedicated to them. Each box will have an array of gifts and collectables notions that will make you happy, fulfilled, and chic at your next knit event!

Become part of our secret society: subscribe today!

The images you see are the inspiration behind my choices for this club: throughout 2023 you will receive four surprise boxes with unique stitch markers, and other tools and notions that are out of the ordinary. Two random boxes throughout the year will have a handmade fabric surprise.

You can choose to trust me for an entire year (and you won’t be disappointed) or buy just one box!

Deliveries will be:
1st instalment – End of January 2023
2nd instalment – End of April 2023
3rd instalment – End of July 2023
4th and last instalment – End of October 2023

For the month of April, I set myself a challenge: publish one bag a day on both my Instagram profile and my shop.

20 of these bags were sewn during the month of March 2022. The remaining 10 never made it to Instagram. All these bags are UNIQUE and NUMBERED: if you fell in love with one and want to buy it, don’t hesitate: there is just one of each bag and once is sold, is gone forever!

The month is nearly over and almost all the bags are published (to end on the 30th with a BANG! Look at the last picture for a sneak peek!) and you can see all the bags in my shop and my Instagram feed!

All bags have a number and I won’t make them again in the future. There will be similar bags, maybe, but nothing identical. They also give a perspective on what you could expect in the upcoming months. I will play with colours, features, different closures, shapes, prints…

Dig in and let me transport you in my world, modelled around novel and special colours, unique prints, and practical shapes, to make your next project bag truly unique!

Creation is all about passion. And if you are in love with colours, then you probably love cooking as much as you love knitting!

And if there is one name that flies out if you mention cooking and colours together it is for sure Yotam Ottolenghi.

It is therefore quite naturally that we wanted to pay tribute to his cuisine, his flavours, his colours by creating a series of boxes inspired by his books.

Let us present you our special sock knitting boxes Le Tre Stagioni di Ottolenghi (The Three Seasons of Ottolenghi).

It is a Yarn&Bag club: a series of three surprise boxes rich in colours and flavours in homage to the wonderful Middle Eastern cuisine.

Each box will have:

– 1 skein of Foot Lane from Penny Lane Yarns dyed exclusively for this occasion by Deborah in Zürich, Switzerland, 75% merino / 25% polyamide, 100 g / 425m – 465 yd
– 1 sock pattern created by Sara (with code for download, available in English, French and Italian)
– 1 project bag exclusively created, dyed and/or printed by Sara from La Cave à Laine
– Surprises!

You can choose to buy one, two or the three boxes altogether and receive them throughout 2022:
– Box 1 March 2022
– Box 2 August 2022
– Box 3 October 2022

There is a limited number of boxes, so be quick!

The Black&White collection is the most minimalistic collection I have ever created. Black and white cotton adorned with hand-printed organic shapes in a multitude of different bag sizes.

Among all the usual features present in all my bags (internal pocket, 100% natural materials, handcrafted), the bags in this collections also presents other highlights:
– The Tote Bags have 2 external pockets: one in front, hand printed, and one in the back. They also have handles and a long crossbody (59″). They measure 13″ x 12.5″
– The Wristlet Bags have a long wristlet with a handy lobster clap to hang it everywhere. They measure 12.5″ x 8.5″
– The Super Gioia Bags also feature either a crossbody or long handles, a drawstring closure and some have external pockets. They measure 11″ x 9.5″
– The Gioia Bags are our small bags (2 to 3 skeins of yarn), and for this collection we added some zipper closures to two of them. They measure 11″ x 7″

Linen is an interesting material. Stiffer then cotton, it has the incredible quality to soften with use.

If you are following me in my colour discovery journey, you have seen me dye many colours, mainly on cotton. I have also experimented on linen.

The linen I use comes from Lithuania and I buy the unbleached and un-dyed linen mixed with cotton, which means that I dye over the natural colour: a mix of beige and light grey.

This of course has some influence on the final colour, giving it a more ethereal aura.

Hand-dyed, handprinted, patchwork, all the Linen collection has an ethereal aura that will transport you directly to an elven realm.
