• Wool And The Gang’s Zion Lion Hat

    November 7, 2014 Kate

    It’s here! Wool and the Gang is on Canadian soil… it’s HERE! I’ve followed UK based WATG for some time now and on multiple occasions come this close to ordering online, but the ridiculous shipping fees have stopped me. So, I can’t tell you how over the moon I was to see a whole wall…

  • Updated Textured Circle Scarf

    November 4, 2014 Kate

    Alright kids, here we go again. One of my first posts and tutorials, Textured Circle Scarf, was in desperate need of a re-knit. I know I haven’t blogged much, but I’m already at that stage where I look back at old posts, particularly “tutorials”, and wince. Since this scarf is easily the most worn thing…

    October 30, 2014 Kate

    Spring Break Up. Stonecut & Stencil on Kizuki Kozo Natural. Printed by Cee Pootoogook I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I heard about the Cape Dorset print collection, but I can tell you this definitely wasn’t it.

  • Brooklyn Tweed’s Spruce Forest Lace Shawl

    October 28, 2014 Kate

    Well well, it’s been a week or 8 hasn’t it? I’d love to say I’ve been wildly productive in my blogging absence but no, just your general ‘life happens’ stuff. I did however finally finish this Brooklyn Tweed Spruce Forest Estonian lace shawl that I started at the beginning of the summer. I actually completed…

  • Smalley Ladies In Hats

    September 7, 2014 Kate

    In the spirit of all those Sunday’s I had to put a comb through my hair and hat on my head for church, I give you a look at two sophisticated Smalley’s and their hats. I may not have understood it as a child, but the last few years I’ve found myself increasingly draw to…

  • Ultimate Home DIY Inspiration

    August 30, 2014 Kate

    I may have said it before but I’ll say it again, this is the do-it-yourself I was raised in. Think big, make it happen. My parents wanted something to provide privacy between themselves and the neighbours, something a bit more unique than your standard fence or hedge. Being in the kitchen business for quite some…

  • A Drafters Workspace

    August 26, 2014 Kate

    Aren’t other peoples workspaces fascinating? I’m not talking about the “we’ll arrive noon Tuesday with the box lighting and vintage props please prepare yourself accordingly” kind, I mean the real thing. Nary a sticky note rearranged. I must apologize to my Mumma for exposing this ‘mess’ to the interwebs, but frankly this mess is gold.…

  • A Woven Wall Hanging, Unfinished

    August 24, 2014 Kate

    Well. I don’t love it. In keeping with my intention to blog honestly, I’ve got to admit this is not turning out as I’d hoped. I had this concept built up in my head and I expected it to feel so good when I finished, but here I am cross-legged on the floor staring at…

  • Etsy Finds August 2014

    August 20, 2014 Kate

    Etsy is a wonderful place. But man, it’s overwhelming. I honestly can’t stand scrolling through it, but then there are those really great finds that make the pages of tea cozies worth it. Items that aren’t homemade-and-look-it, you know? Those are the finds I’d like to start sharing. Clare Celeste makes some incredible collages. I…

  • Toronto Street Art

    August 17, 2014 Kate

    It’s so easy to find yourself surrounded by one aesthetic. Think about your Instagram feed, the blogs you read, the places you shop… That’s what hit me walking through Kensington Market one day, looking up at these walls that were impossible ignore. It’s so not me, but I loved it. I think we’ve got to…
