Honeycomb progress keeper | by the Nome Knitter


    The most adorable, miniature honeycomb you will ever find.

    I am deeply in love with The Nome Knitter's adorable mini-food creations. She has an amazing gift for sculpting absolutely realistic, wee tiny treasures that look so real, you can smell the sweetness.

    This tiny piece of polymer clay honeycomb has a lobster claw clasp so that it can attach to your stitches and mark your progress. If you're like me, you may get impatient while knitting, and this marker helps you see exactly how much you've knit in a particular knitting session, to help cheer you on and overcome impatience.

    This wee honeycomb marker is approximately 1/2 inch tall and light as a feather.

  • The Hundred Acre Wood collection
    is a preorder collection. We expect that your order will ship in approximately 4 weeks, and sooner if we can. If your order contains ready-to-ship items from our regular inventory and preordered items, it will ship in one package when the preordered portion is ready.

    Please feel free to be in touch with us at any time if you have questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship. We're delighted to help!

  • I am delighted to introduce you to the wonderful makers who collaborated with me to create the Hundred Acre Wood kit.

    Designer Helen Stewart of the Curious Handmade podcast created the centerpiece of the collection, the Hundred Acre Wood shawl. She’s known for her feminine and beautifully-wearable accessory designs that are soothing and relaxing to knit.

    Hand-dyer Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers created and hand-dyed the scrumptious yarn palette in her studio in New Mexico. The gradient color set is a work of art, with underwashes of common colors and gently shifting hues from raisin-brown purple to forest green.

    Artist Chamisa Kellogg created the original illustrations that became the fabric in the kit’s project bag, and which pepper the entire kit. Chamisa’s style evokes the very best of childhood: the dreamy sense that something wonderful is always right around the corner.

    Also in the collection are treasures from some of my favorite makers:
    The Nome Knitter | Honeycomb progress keeper
    Tuft Woolens | Honeybee hand lotion & lip balm
    Handmades by Olivia | hand-embroidered zipper pouch
    Leslie Wind, jewelry artist | Kindred Spirits shawl pin
    Perfect Paperie | Love of Honey bookmarks
    Preserved maple leaves

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Hundred Acre Wood kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.

    We hope you love our creations!
