Knitting, naturally.

As November draws to a close and the snow starts to fall, cozy, fire-side activities become more and more attractive, and as always are accompanied by copious amounts of hot coffee.

I couldn't bring myself to put away the beautiful scraps from my last shawl, made with T...

My idea was to learn how to knit socks in Sock-tober, that quintessential of knitting skills during that quintessentially cozy month for knitting, as the days shorten and the chilly mists set in.

However, my summer knitting project, Barbara Bensen's lovely Earthbound Mi...

At last the sun and warmth are here after such a long wait! It's a perfect time to finish a depths-of-the-winter project, the Bundled in Brioche Scarf by designer Stephen West. 

I made it with about 10 different colours from Malabrigo Worsted, all from my stash. I start...

What could possibly be more fun than one MKAL (Mystery Knit-a-Long)? Of course, mmmmmore MKALS!

Almost as much fun as a shark attack! ... I've had my first taste of shawl knitting and I'm sure that I've found my favourite knit art-form.

ABOUT

Annette Fehr ~ Lyon, France

I come from a very artsy and craftsy family from the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Following a degree in Urban Planning & Design, I first moved to Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to the Beaujolais wine region of France where I'm constantly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding me. I took up knitting several years ago as a way to relax, reduce stress and as a child-compatible activity. I've experimented with all kinds of arts & crafts throughout my life including drawing, painting, calligraphy, architectural drawing, sculpting, jewellery-making, photography, quilting, embroidery, and crochet, and I was instantly fascinated by the infinite design possibilities, vibrant colour combinations and touchableness offered by hand-knitting. I dream of one day combining my passion for knitting with yarn possibilities appropriate for the hot climates which I love so much.
