Ready-to-ship kits are sold out, but I'd love to make one for you. You can preorder a kit through the end of December (please note: preorders will ship after Christmas).
Find that quiet, handmade place in your heart with Walden
As a girl, I loved to imagine life in a cabin in the woods, where I would make everything by hand and explore the natural world every day. I was fascinated with stories of nature and treehouses and especially tales of young people who went to live in the woods.
Walden began as a way to honor this quiet, handmade place in my heart. That imaginary cabin in the woods where life is both simple and rich.
The Walden shawl brings to life this feeling of both simplicity and ability. It's a crescent-shaped shawl but constructed in a slightly unconventional way. It has three wedges, two of which are simple stockinette, and the third is a trellised leaf cable.
To me, Walden has become a touchstone. It's shawl, an illustration, and a bit of a handmade meditation that can remind me to go slow and enjoy the simple joy of making.
I collaborated with two fellow artists to bring you the Walden kit. Katy Carrolldesigned the shawl, Ashley Nelson Jackson created the central illustration which has become both an art print and fabric for project bags, and I poured my heart into the yarn palette.
Together, the three of us are quiet makers who see and honor the maker in you. It is our hope that Walden will bring you joy, comfort and wrap you in the beauty of this wintry making season.
I'll be making Walden kits throughout December and January. A select few (~20) are available as ready-to-ship, and if you can wait for me to make your kit, I'm ever so grateful for your preorder.
