Toy mini loom with painted flower decoration

So... I'm a little bit late with this week's post. I had grand plans to post last night after returning home from Fibre Fest in Picton. And of course after a long drive with two kids, all I wanted to do was eat dinner and go straight to bed. But I still want to share last week's accomplishments with you, so here they are!

Accomplishment #1

I brought home this toy loom (shown above) to play with and see if it's possible to use it to teach weaving to kids. I'm not sure how practical it is, but it's super-cute! I've been itching to get back into weaving this year, so I'm hoping that starting with something small like this will push me to jump back into it.

Accomplishment #2

As part of my long-term project to transition my family towards a more plastic-free, zero-waste lifestyle, I've been wanting to check out Épicerie LOCO for a while so this week we took a little field trip. I brought my own glass mason jars, filled two with dish soap and one with hand soap and I'm excited try my stainless steel soap dispensers that fit right on the mason jar from Life Without Plastic. I was also happy to find organic, Quebec milk in returnable glass bottles!

Accomplishment #3

Fibre Fest! I finished and blocked my Meandering Pathway Shawl in plenty of time for Fibre Fest and we had a wonderful time in Picton. We spent the day meeting friends old and new, eating delicious food, watching the sheep shearing demos, and even a little bit of shopping :)

Lanark gloves (today's featured pattern in our 100 Days of Patterns project) are one of my design contributions to our Cloudy Day Collection, published way back in 2012. They're knit in our Messa di Voce fingering-weight superwash merino, in the Chimney Smoke colourway.

As part of our 100 days of patterns retrospective, we'll be sharing some project galleries featuring some favourite projects made from our patterns. Cranberry Biscotti (a free sock pattern) is my design with the most projects on Ravelry. I'm sharing a few of my favourites here, but do check out the project pages on Ravelry to see many, many more beautiful projects.

100 Days of Patterns

par Debbie Sullivan April 15, 2020

Since we’re still on a shipping hiatus for the time being, we thought it would be a good time to do a retrospective of our Sweet Paprika patterns. We’ve been publishing our own designs and those of other talented designers for over 13 years now, and have 99 patterns available here on our website and on Ravelry! We decided to call this project 100 Days of Patterns though, since we’re pretty sure we’ll have at least one new pattern released by the time we get through them all...
