Today as I work from home and notice that our weather is similar here in Jersey City as Vancouver, I thought a stay at home round up was in order. I'm admittedly not used to the rain anymore since Montreal and New York/Jersey City don't get nearly as much as Vancouver. So, you don't have to tell me I'm a wuss for staying inside. I know I am. So, these are the items I'm currently dreaming about having on my person simultaneously.
All local links.
-A full pint of Ale in a Willowcraft pint mug. Again, no judgement please ;) It's 2pm here! Also, if Robyn had her whiskey cups posted that would be my drink of choice. Instead I'm drinking Earl Grey tea like a normal person, but a girl can dream that mid-day drinking could be sustainable, right?!
-This silk, natural dyed lap quilt by Hope Chest Quilts. Isn't it gorgeous?! And that's the back!
-Andrea Rangel's lovely prototype of her Tokul design.
-A Pair of Love Jules Leather Show Co's sexy custom kicks. That's right, I'd wear these in the house. At least until I got up the courage to expose them to Vancouver rain. Sigh, so sexy.
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to me at
janna (at) vancouveryarn.com and specify that you'd like to see it on our blog.
