Odd Number Knits

Local, Laboured, Loved

14/11/17   

Okay okay, it's been a year or so. No, I'm not good at marketing myself or pushing my knits. Luckily, I have repeat fans that email/text/call for orders! But I'm always knitting. This year I finish my 9th sweater, and decided I'd keep it for myself. My frenchie grandma was super impressed and I gloated about it (obviously). The yarn was bought at Urban Yarns  at a stellar price (it's Italian Fine Merino). It's been a gem.

Another highlight is the adorable xmas ornaments I'm making. Toques, sweaters and mitts, puke-cute! All made with US grown cotton that is processed in Canada. Loving these!

Hey folks, it's been awhile! How are you guys? It's getting cold out and the rain is quickly setting in. I have some new and awesome goods, as well as some good old tried and true pieces looking for new homes. My prices have lowered as I need more room for new knits! Have a look at the product pages - you might see something you like. 

Don't forget - I do a lot of custom orders. Christmas is nearing(ish), so if you'd like something, please contact me. The sooner I get started, the sooner you get your custom item.

17/11/15                                                      Square Cards & Custom Stamps En Route!

I've recently ordered some awesome eco-friendly square cards for the Make It! craft fair. They are made of 100% recycled post consumer waste, they are 100% recyclable and biodegradable, ECF (elemental chlorine free) and manufactured using wind power. Perfect! I also ordered a custom stamp for my price tags! So exciting! If you're buying an item as a gift, throw a card in - that lucky person can find me online and see the intention, time and care that goes into every piece. See something you like, but want a different colour? Grab a card! Send me an email! Maybe I'll get me some stickers too....

The camera is on and I'm snapping away! Big thanks to Easy Edie for posing all afternoon. These shawls are a solid favourite, stop by the new Warm Shoulders section and have a gander.

The labels are in and I couldn't be happier! Each label has been hand sewn on every item - it's the most sewing I've ever done in my life! I've gotten excellent feedback, people are loving the addition. I'm so pleased!!

14/09/15                                                                      New Lovely Labels!

New labels are in the works! I am elated to have found Grain DEEP, a great company based in Toronto, Canada. The samples look awesome and I can't wait to sew these beauties onto my knits. The tags are made of soft, pliable synthetic leather (vegan friendly) and are laser engraved. Keep it Canadian!

24/08/15                                                                    Display Furniture is Painted!  

I've spent the last couple of days priming and painting all my display furniture for Make It! Vancouver. It's been a labour of love and well worth it - they look amazing! The colour theme is monochromatic black, grey and white to make those colourful yarns pop. My booth will include a toque tree, floating mannequin heads, twinkling lights, music and a marquee. More to come...

I am officially a Make It! 2015 vendor! The fair is at the PNE Forum and takes place December 3-6. I'm knitting as much as my little hands can handle, trying to stock up. I'll be selling toques, headbands, cowls, shawls, mittens and fingerless gloves. Make sure you come by - there are loads of fantastic vendors selling awesome art, ceramics, jewelry, clothing, accessories, food and more. Support local artists!
