— The Dutch artist and her knitted boyfriend, funny and adorable
— French guys learns macramé to fund his South American wanderings, winds up with jewelry designs on a Paris runway
— I’m enticed by the process shots in the Tiger pillow installment of Design Sponge’s Embroidery 101 series (see also embroidered sunglasses at HonestlyWTF)
— In awe of handmade shoes
— Really great interview with Pam Allen, of Quince and Co, on the challenges of producing a natural, American yarn (lots of good stuff at A Verb for Keeping Warm’s blog lately — poke around while you’re there)
In other news, a little birdie tells me Juniper Ridge is discontinuing the truly amazing jumbo cedar sachets. Which is tragic. Fortunately, I ordered lots, because I love them, so there are a still a few dozen available over at Fringe Supply Co. But be aware they may be the last of their kind.
These are all great! My reading for tonight’s couch session is all set. Thanks! (I love that knitted boyfriend. Maybe I should try that…)
