Friday's Finds: Cabin Fever

We've just booked a quaint little cabin in a remote area of BC for a summer, weeklong getaway. As I sit here, in the middle of a snowstorm, at the end of April, no less, I can't help but think about how relaxing this time will be. No electricity, no TV, not much to do but bring a few books, perhaps some knitting, and enjoy the surrounding nature. This little cabin is my inspiration to today's finds.

To see more awesome finds with this theme, check out our treasury east, Cabin Fever.

Knittles Studio Update

With the lull in sales that we've been expecting as the weather warms up, we're busy satisfying some fibre cravings by indulging in some spinning. Inspired by the beautiful thick and thin spun yarn from fiberstory, I  dusted off my old drop spindle and gave her a whirl.

When the roving stash ran out, I couldn't stop spinning, so I dove into my gigantic stash and dug out some yarn that was less than inspiring. Plying for the first time, the spinning was not only super quick, but also meditative. Watch out stash...I'm coming for you!

Friday's Finds: Funny Bunnies

This week's etsy finds are inspired by the funny little bunnies, one of K's favorite videos, a classic disney animated short that is part of the silly symphonies series. I remember watching episodes of the silly symphonies on VHS growing up, and was thrilled to find some of my favorite ones on youtube. They were the best, and we'd watch the same tape over, and over and over.
