Maker Feature: Klowa Handknits

"Each Klowa item is carefully handknit by Meghan Fandrich, who lives in the little village of Lytton, BC, Canada.  Klowa Handknits are created in and inspired by the landscape of this incredible place, where two rivers and three mountain ranges come together; where the Nlaka'pamux people have lived for tens of thousands of years; where snowy peaks tower above the pine and sage of the desert." www.klowa.ca

Q & A: Knitting for Warmth

Q & A: Knitting for Warmth

Family snowshoeing day. I was so warm, I had to take my hat off. ; ) I recently received this question from  @atomicagecrochet, "...I'd love to know what you do or recommend for warmth in winter..." Good question! Since I live in Canada (albeit a fairly mild part of it, New Westminster, BC in the Pacific Northwest) however we do live in a small old house built in 1929, and we're conscious of heating costs (read, we're cheap because we save our money for important things, like chocolate), so we tend to run the heat a bit on the low...
