Autumn's Arrival

Summer is just about over, with the first signs of Autumn fast approaching. The evening air is cooler, leaves are turning, and my mind is racing with the many projects, gifts, and new ideas that I want to tackle. 

This Fall, aside from stocking our shops on Etsy and HyenaCart, we will also be participating in local craft shows. The weekend of September 10th -11th we will be attending the 17th Annual Sheep & Fiber Festival in Ringoes, NJ. I'm excited to take my first spinning workshop and check out local fiber artisans and vendors. I'll be sure to post pictures and information about the Festival once we return.

During the summer months we were busy building inventory and working on custom orders for our awesome clients. We also developed several new hat designs, perfect for newborn photography sessions. I'm eagerly awaiting photographs of our new hat designs by Carrie Steffe of EMA Photography. As soon as we get them back I'll post them to the blog. 

In the meantime, here is a small sample of some of the projects that we completed during the past few months.

Autumn Longies
I love the way these turned out.
This medium-sized gender neutral pair of longies are perfect for the Fall. They are knit with Peruvian wool, and appliqued with crocheted oak leaves on the legs, bum, and hips. The i-cord features two crocheted acorns.

The Little Newboy Set
A crocheted set featuring a 24 x 24 inch lovie by Sarah at Star Crossed Stitches, the Little Newsboy Hat, and an Owl Stuffie. This would make an awesome shower gift.

Gillyweeds & Knoodle Knits Collaboration
This was a semi-custom knit for a sweet mama expecting her 5th baby. The yarn was dyed by Shannon from Gillyweeds, on Peruvian wool, in the 80s Rainbow colorway.

Neverland "Peter" Sweater
I LOVE how this custom sweater turned out.
The pattern is by Tina at Green Strings. This was knit as a gift, as we do not have licensing for this pattern (yet). The yarn was kettle dyed by Knoodle Knits in the Forest Frirends colorway, on Aran Canadian BFL. Custom Tessa Ann Designs buttons complete the set.

Sloane's Shrug
This shrug has been knit in pumpkin colored Peruvian wool and finished with a matching leaf button by Tessa Ann Designs.

Newborn Little Newsboy Cap
Brown and Beige acrylic yarn with a square accent button.

Kettle Dyed Longies
A medium sized pair of longies knit on MMR. The colorway, Blue Truffles, and matching brown trim were kettle dyed by Knoodle Knits.

Floral Longies
Another pair of medium sized longies knit with Peruvian wool in lavender-grey, magenta, and lime green. Crocheted flowers and a vine are appliqued onto the left hip and across the bum. Magenta stripes adorn the legs, and a green stitch detail accents the cuffs.

Autumn Springtime in Hollis
Another Autumn inspired garment, knit with a pattern and licensing from Comfort Wool. This STIH was knit with bamboo and soy yarn in deep colors of purple, orange, and russet. Custom raven and cornstalk buttons by Tessa Ann Designs complete the piece.

The Steinar Sweater
This unisex sweater is an original Knoodle Knits design. Lace details on the yoke and a crocheted placket make this a great heirloom quality cardigan. Coordinating Tessa Ann Designs buttons in the Snowbird style finish the garment.
