Another version of the prairie river shawl, this time in fingerling weight, ready for its photoshoot with the rest of the collection for the 2017 Manitoba Fibre Festival!! @prairiedyestudio much appreciation and love sent your way for the wonderful hand dyed skiens you sent me!

Spent this gorgeous first day of summer helping out with sheep shearing at #chassagnefarm. These are the rams being herded into the shearing shed. What a fun day we had! #shetlandsheep #canadianwool #localwool

I can't wait to wear this bright red #diodehat! Well, after a nice long summer of course.

A beautiful design-in-progress, with steeking for a buttonband! Repost from @samanthamaylamb: "a moment from yesterday's steeking adventure.😁 a little scary to attempt a first steek on a sweater, but thanks to @thegentleknitter's guidance, i'm happy to report there were no casualties. (and wow, this technique is awesome!) #knitspiration #knittersofig #briggsandlittle #alwaysknitting #knittersoftheworld #iloveknitting"

At the lake, sitting on the dock watching the kids swim while I dip my feet and wind my new wool! It's so soft, I can hardly wait to start my new project. #canadianwool #agrestalyarn #atthelake #august #bedrockandbrambles

I was hell-bent on getting a pair of socks out of this one skein...but I am now thinking I will have yardage to spare with these shrimp feet of mine. 💃🏻👣

I love seeing what others are making with my yarn!
Repost from @taraknitsnow - I love my Achetype Hat in @longwayhomestead Wool. The design is perfect (thank you @ffrench ) and the sheepy soft Shetland is just dreamy. I'm going to live in this hat ❤️ #longwayhomestead #shetlandwool #archetypehat #canadianwool #canadianwoollove

La laine de DouxDoux!! 😍Your first sneak peak at some of the offerings we will have soon! After years of selling hay and straw, this is something totally different! Can't wait to package it all up pretty! It's plain old natural white wool, but my head and heart is exploding with the possibilities! Oh the possibilities! 💗

We are loving this sneak peek of a new design from @owlcatdesigns! Repost from @owlcatdesigns: "I just adore my new coat/cardigan! The neckline with that seed stitch 😍😍 I may want to make another one in a different color!
It's a new design for fall, a open front cardigan that is a bit longer and falls below just below the butt for style and added warmth and comfort. Pattern coming in the fall, but it will be ready for test knitting momentarily!

Fall is whispering at the edges of the day and we're collectively starting to recall our Canadian love affair with wrapping ourselves up in soft shawls and delightful sweaters.

The buttonband on a cardigan is always the home stretch... so close to a finished knit! Repost from @knittingsile: "the air is cool but heavy today and since I'm supposed to stay off my foot, maybe I can get some rows on these button bands done! #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knittersofig #knitter #mysweater #ballyshannoncardigan #RamonaGaynor #WIP #sweater #buttonbands #twistedrib #briggsandlittletuffy #briggsandlittle #knitdancerepeat #béaláthaseanaidh #339stsinarow"

Love this colourwork in progress! Repost from @laurabrehaut: "Barley twist in Briggs & Little, 100% Canadian wool. The aqua is a provisional cast on: after 66cm of colourwork, the tube is twisted and grafted. Pattern is from @hilarygrantknitwear's excellent #KnittingFromTheNorth #newedisthandknits #knittersofinstagram" .

Isn't knitting while socializing with friends the best? Hooray for knittin gin public! Repost from @girlto: "This thing where you realize if you quickly get a section done, you can take your project out for coffee and mindless knitting with a friend 🙃☕️🍰 #cablecaston #veronikacardi #briggsandlittle #cloudysummerday"

We are pleased to present three vivid new made-in-Montreal Valentina Colour Works colourways plus a summer floral favourite best-seller. All the skeins in the photographs  shown here were meticulously hand-dyed in small-pot dye lots by Svetlana in VCW Classic Merino Fingering (113g 438m 23-28 stitches 100% merino superwash $23.95 each).
Joining the VCW collection of rich reds is our latest gemstone-inspired colour, 'Royal Garnet'. Adding to our growing gallery of dynamic oranges is VCW 'Marmalade', a scrumptious, subtly variegated concoction that reminds most viewers of their favourite citrus spread made from Seville Oranges! Rounding out our shade selection of dark-hued blues is  our latest ocean-inspired colourway, 'Marianas', with much more tonal variation than our best-selling Caspian and Saguenay VCW colourways. ...and from our summer-garden florals, here is the wildly popular 'Celosia', a skilled, eye-catching blend of red, fuchsia and purple undertones.

Nous sommes enchantés de vous présenter trois nouveaux coloris saisissants de Valentina Colour Works, faits à Montréal, ainsi qu’un coup de cœur inspiré des fleurs estivales. Tous les écheveaux que vous voyez dans les photos ont été soigneusement teints à la main, en petits lots de teinture, par Svetlana, en VCW Classic Merino Fingering (113 g, 438 m, 23-28 mailles, 100 % mérinos lavable à la machine à 23.95 $ chacun). « Royal Garnet », nouvel ajout à la collection de rouges riches de VCW est notre plus récente couleur inspirée des pierres précieuses. « Marmalade » de VCW s’ajoute à notre galerie grandissante de dynamiques couleurs orangées. Il s’agit d’un somptueux mélange subtilement bigarré qui vous rappellera votre confiture aux agrumes préférée, faite d’oranges de Séville. « Marianas », notre plus récent coloris vient compléter notre sélection de nuances de bleus foncés. Inspiré de l’océan, il possède plus de variations de tons que nos populaires Caspian et Saguenay de VCW.
Enfin « Celosia », inspirée des jardins de fleurs estivaux. Ce coloris très apprécié est un habile et attrayant mélange de tons nuancés de rouge, de fuchsia et de violet.

The car is loaded with fiber! This is our second order of the week we've picked up. Getting ready for fall, not sure where it's all going to go this will make about 200 pounds of fibre this week 😁 And in the background you can see how smokey Kelowna is right now it's pretty eery looking out there due to all the BC forest fires 😢 #wool #handcrafted #canadianwool #dryerballs #wooldryerballs #needlefelting #fibreartist

First time visit to a LYS that's only open during the week. Happy to find they sell MacAusland's workhorse yarn from PEI! Great for socks and felted slippers! #goodfibrations #macauslandswool #lys #canadianwool #canadianknitter #workhorseyarn #peiwool

Oooo pretty yarn from @smithandewe and the name is Yum Yum Cherries and Plum! Beautiful #canadianwool #canadianknitters

SO I FINALLY ATTEMPTED TO SEW IN THE ZIPPER AND I THINK ITS OKAY? I did it by hand so maybe it'll just be temporary until I can learn how to do it properly. I mean at least it's straight. And on the first attempt too?! Either way I can finally say it's DONE! 🙌🏼✨
