For almost two years, we’ve been sending out a weekly newsletter, Featured Finds, where we share little tidbits from around the world that we find interesting. The topics range far and wide, and are guaranteed to be interesting, educational, or thought provoking. Once a month, we’ll be sharing the top ten highlights (on no particular order) from the weeks prior. February highlights are below. Enjoy!
1 / Kay and Anne from Mason Dixon Knitting are “Banging out a Carbeth“. Are you?
2 / As business owners who have young children, we have given a lot of thought to making our office welcoming to pumping. Most, though, aren’t so lucky.
3 / In honor of her son James, our dear friend – and spectacular ray of sunshine – Margaux Hufnagel started a campaign, The Rare Stitch. Read about it here.
4 / Knitting is my job, but sewing is my hobby. Enjoy your hobbies – not everything has to be a side hustle!
5 / This 90 year old Czech artist is basically the person I hope one day to become.
6 / I created a tutorial on working increases within charts. A perfect new skill for working the Delia hat from The Andorra Collection or Bennett Creek from the Luma Collection!
7 / Cashmere. We all love it. And we’re concerned about the care and health of the people and animals involved in the processing. But just how ethical is ethical cashmere?
9 / There were some pretty spectacular moments of the Olympics. But we couldn’t help but notice all of the participants knitting – like this ski coach from Finland.
10 / Ada Blackjack: seamstress, survivor, inspiration.
