Guys, I’m so jazzed to introduce you to October’s sponsors! Some of these are new friends, and some I’ve had the pleasure of meeting before, but it’s so fun to share what I love best about their work here. I hope you will check them all out, they are all carefully selected because I genuinely believe they are awesome. The items I’m showing below are some of my favourites that they have on offer, and were chosen by me.
Name: Tanis Fiber Arts
What She is All About: Tanis has an extraordinary selection of stunning hand dyed yarns, kits, and patterns. If you’ve been reading Knitted BLiss for a while, you know that Tanis and I go way back!
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: You’ve probably seen the Vector scarf pattern in Wool People, but Tanis has kits in different colourways, all ready to go. Tartan is one of her newer colourways, and is so perfect for fall. And I love the timeless appeal of this modern cabled cardigan, I Heart Cardigans.
Name: Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe
What She is All About: Alicia hand crafts deliciously scented lotion bars and lip balms with all natural ingredients, including lanolin!
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: The scent range is amazing, but at this time of year I love her Apple Butter Lotion Bar, Chocolate Cupcake Lip Balm, and Cinnamon Chai Lotion Bar. I love how lotion bars moisturize without your hands getting slippery. If you haven’t tried them before, they are so amazing for dry hands.
Name: Never Not Knitting
What She is All About: Alana designs beautiful knitting patterns that often have a very natural vibe- especially when you think of her collections, such as Coastal Knits, Botanical Knits, and Botanical Knits 2. Also, you’ve probably noticed that she sometimes uses a very familiar looking model… as evidenced in the sidebar!
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: Seedling, a simple but beautiful hat with a trio of leaves; Twigs and Willows Cardigan which has a lovely leafy branch detail, and Verdure, fingerless mitts with a sprouting plant motif.
What She is All About: Lise focuses on scrumptious hand dyed yarns, roving, and rolags. And she has her own alpacas!
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: a beautiful thrummed slipper sock kit, a lovely self striping superwash merino sock yarn with generous yardage, and mauve to blond to gold hand dyed roving.
What She is All About: Andrea focuses on timeless garment designs for women and babies and kids (seriously, the size range for her baby/kid sweaters is awesome!)
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: Tide Pools pullover (shown in the adult size), Midwinter cardigan (love those cables!), and Mustill (size range from 6 months to 12 years).
Name: Erica Knits
What She is All About: Erica focuses on classic, chic designs with great little details.
A Few of my Favourite Things, from left to right: Diode, a hat I loved so much I’ve actually knit it myself; the Anstruther hat and mitts are going to be released later this week (so check back in her shop on Friday or Saturday!) but I couldn’t help but post a photo of them- so perfect for winter and I love colourwork; and Broadcast, a classically simple seed stitch sweater with cable details.
