Our May bag of the month is another super-fun-tastic offering from Cynthia Frenette! We have had Cute & Sweary, and Pretty Sweary, and NOW to cap it all off: for those of you who watched in disdain knowing you could not or would not want to walk around with curse words all over your project bag, but you still have a sense of humor and kind of felt left out, well… it’s your turn!!!

Not So Sweary!
That’s right! All the mother forking goodness and wholesome sons of benches are welcome to join us for this super fun, super tongue-in-cheek collection finale!

Hand-printed tote Bags

  • A cream tote bag with the words Knit Knit Knit in red.

Since last year I have fallen into the wonderful world of linocut! A variant of woodcut, linocut was used for the first time at the beginning of the 20th century, by the German expressionist group Die Brücke. Not to be confounded by general block printing (which normally uses some kind of rubber) linocut uses linoleum, a natural material made from linseed oil, rosin, wood flour, cork, limestone, pigments and jute. So all natural and recyclable: when I am finished with a block I put it in the compost in my garden!

Carving a block of lino is one of the most satisfying activity I have ever tried! The next logical step was to apply all this happiness and joy to my work!

And then the Linocut Tote where born!

These totes are big enough to help you carry around your yarn or your groceries. They are foldable, and you can always keep them in your purse, to hold your last shopping spree!

They are made of 100% cotton and hand printed by me with my original drawing, hand carved in linoleum. Every tote is part of a very small batch of numbered pieces and they won’t be replicated in the future in these

All prints have some kind of connection to my life:
– #Tricot: I live in France, and tricot means knitting in french. If you share something about knitting #tricot is the go to hashtag!
– Stripes and pipes is a variant of my original drawing that I created last year for a limited edition of zip pouches.
– Gortyna, inspired by the many dry wild carrots flowers we have seen near Gortyna, Crete, Greece, during our 2018 summer vacation.
– Knit Knit Knit is what we all want to do in our spare time 🙂
There are only few items available for each design: hurry up!

Spring Adventures in Wonderland

  • A bag in floral fabric with skeins of pink and green yarn.

Hooray for spring! It’s like sweater weather part two around here — you can finally ditch the heavy overcoat, but still wear your knits before it gets too hot. Plus, we have two exciting spring collaborations to let you know about…

First, Amanda of Little Bitty Delights has created a stunning progress keeper for our April Club, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We still have a handful of spots available, but once they’re gone they are gone! You can choose whether you’d prefer heavier or lighter yarn and if you’d like a single or double dose. The colorway is a surprise, but you can expect spring speckles inspired by Alice’s amazing adventures.

Second, we’ve joined forces with GingerRoots Bags to create a gorgeous spring set: a full-sized skein of sock yarn, a 90-yard mini skein for a pop of color and a coordinating project bag all created to celebrate the excitement of the shift from gloom to BLOOM! We have a very limited number of sets available, so be sure to grab yours quickly.

Time to say goodbye to Game Of Thrones

A skein of navy, teal and white yarn with a bag in a Game of Thrones fabric.

Winter is here.

We have waited for years for this, and have dreaded it at the same time. Why must great things come to an end?

To celebrate the last season of Game of Thrones, and commemorate the stunning series finale, we have reopened purchases of the first installment of our Throne’s-themed club.

The first installment was a skein of Game of Thrones-inspired yarn called Origins of Snow and a marvelous dumpling bag using licensed GoT fabric designed just for this club. After securing additional fabric we have opened this up for purchase of round one alone for those that are not fans of mysteries.

We have very limited openings, so don’t wait!

The Spring collection is here! Discover the new fabrics!

  • A bag with aqua fish fabric.

Spring is in the air and also in the fabrics!

The first batch of the new collection is ready and it is filled with colours, flowers, koi carps (!!!), pois, subtle leaves, drama llamas and flowers from the ’70s! Discover the new yarn basket: the perfect couch companion for your knitting: standing by your side, holding the small notions in its handy pocket and filling your life with colour! It is made with sturdy soft cotton, and it is completely reversible!

The new Origami bags are also entirely reversibles, giving you so much choice of colours! From lamas to koi carps, to flowers and pois, let your knitting be held in style and high in colour! Match your WIP with its own project bag!

If you are asking yourself, “Why koi carps???” the answer lies in my place of residence: I live in the east of France, in the south of Alsace, almost on the border with Switzerland. This part of Alsace is called Sundgau and the culinary speciality of the region is fried carp fish, served à volonté (at will) with French fries and salad! I wouldn’t eat it everyday, but once a year, why not! So, as an homage to this part of the world I have found the perfect fabric!

As usual, all my products are handmade by me in my atelier in France with 100% cotton fabrics carefully chosen from European suppliers. They are sturdy, they can be washed (preferably by hand) and they are the perfect companion for the stylish knitter.
