Raindrop Set at Coterie

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Hurrah! The Raindrop Berets and Mitts that I made for Jane’s store Coterie are now available.

Coterie is a webstore that offers handmade goods – including wooden objects, ceramics and textiles – created by makers in Canada, Ireland and elsewhere. I’m a big fan of Jane’s store and have bought enough of her muddlers to keep my entire family in mojitos for a very long time! So needless to say I’m extremely excited to be collaborating with her on a range of knit goods.

I designed the Raindrop Berets and Mitts to have a classic style with a subtle texture, and knit them in a 50% alpaca, 50% wool yarn. We chose three colourways for this Fall/Winter: mustard, soft grey and blue.

I’m planning to make the patterns available as a collection as well. I’ve been having a lot of fun this summer writing patterns and experimenting with prototypes with Jane so once they’re all finalized I’ll compile them. More fun!

Bousta Beret

Bousta Beret

This is Gudrun Johnston’s Bousta Beret – a birthday present for Jane. I love the Horseshoe lace pattern, and the fact that the name – Bousta – means farm in Old Norse. It seemed like the right beret for Jane!
