Looking for Testers

Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /customers/4/f/a/templeofknit.com/httpd.www/wp-content/plugins/wp-spamshield/wp-spamshield.php on line 1858

THE TEST HAS BEEN FILLED! Like I’ve mentioned a few times I’ve been in the process of finalising a couple of patterns for a while and now it is time to send one into the world! First up is a test knit of my yet to be named Summer top. So if you need a holiday project or […]

Khaite and some thoughts on simplicity

The brand new ready to wear line Khaite has got me sighing so hard. More specifically that boiled Cashmere oversized cardigan in the above pic *insert moan*.  From what I can demise it is produced locally in the US, with at least some of the sweaters knit by hand (!) in New York City, which is a […]

Knitting for Summer II

Last year I wrote a bit about my infatuation with Summer knitwear and more generally Summer knitting. I still think it is the bees knees so I thought I’d revisit the theme and share some of my new infatuations. Up until that time I hadn’t really considered wearing knits as a viable option for warm weather, thinking it […]

All of a sudden it’s May next year

Oh has it been a while!

First I just gotta say that this is such a weird post to write. The whole quintessential “sorry for the quiet” post. It is the Mac and Cheese of blog posts. Classic but sooo basic.
I’ve definitely read many and most likely written a few myself and now it seems I can’t shape a sentence without it being the absolute biggest kliché. So I’ll keep it simple and let you know what’s been going on so we can get…

A Conversation with Jess Schreibstein

You’ve probably come across Jess Schreibstein many times. She’s written about natural dyeing in Oaxaca for Fringe Association and my fave Knit Wit magazine, she rocks both Instagram and Ravelry and also opened the very first Woolful podcast (..!). That’s already a pretty admirable rap sheet and there is a lot more.

Maybe you’ve connected the dots, maybe not. I have to admit that I didn’t realise that it was the same awesome chick doing all that, until one fatefull Instagram post(more on that later) when I started paying more attention. Yes, I am that bad with names (and sometimes with paying attention. Sorry, not sorry). I have since made up for my mistake and…

Slow Fashion October: Introductions

It is Sunday and I finally found some time to sit down, think and write. I am busy these days, work is exiting and full of firsts, we are still house/mushroom/moon hunting and more generally trying to build a life here in Karlskrona. It is also Slow fashion October and I think that is exactly what I need. Quiet contemplation, intention and planning. I want to feel this season with all it’s transitions. Preparing for the colder and darker months ahead…

White Mittens

It is Autumn and I am spending as much time as possible walking through the woods scouting for mushrooms. We celebrated the recent Equinox doing just that. Out a little bit too late with a thick fog, an orange moon and not a lot of fungi (it was nearly dark out so go figure). Even though it was beautiful it was also the first time I’ve had to pile on clothes to keep warm. So now I am craving warm cushy fall gear and one thing my heart is set on is a pair of thick, rustic mittens. I really love the idea of a white or whiteish pair to stand out against my navy blue coat, and now that I think about it…

So many Simple House Slippers

Its been a while since I’ve written something here, it’s really not for lacking of trying but I was suddenly struck by a little bit of writers block and so decided to take a vacation from the blog to work on other semi secret projects and enjoy the last weeks of summer. Apparently I can be a […]
