By Hand Lookbook No. 13: Northern California.

The latest volume of By Hand is here!

By Hand is a series of lookbooks where each issue focuses on a city or region. The subject matter is the makers of that community, the designers, hand-dyers, and fiber artists that both shape and draw inspiration from the place they call home.

This issue is all about Northern California, a beautiful part of the country that has been on our minds and in our hearts as wildfire season continues.

This region is home to a few familiar faces, including Julie Weisenberger of cocoknits, and natural dyer Brooke Sinnes of Sincere Sheep. We’re lucky to have some of her Cormo Fingering, Equity Fingering, Equity Sport, and Luminous DK in stock here at the shop – get in touch if you’re interested in what’s available!

Along with maker profiles and knitting patterns, By Hand also features recipes and other crafty projects. So many of us partake in a variety of handiwork, though we may call one or another a favorite; it’s nice to see a diversity of interests on display in this publication. That said, the knitting patterns in this issue are what caught our eye!
