Happy weekend, I hope you're having the vest time. Apparently this is something you can make from two rectangles of fabric woven on a rigid heddle loom ☝️
Hola Alpacas!! I made a thing (and a pattern!!!) based on a thing @sambarskyknitter made, and now you can make it too! The pattern is in the gorgeous new issue of @knitwitknitwit issue 6 and also features an interview with the knitter himself by the incomparable @jess_schreibstein !!! I'm star struck. Also I'm @knitwitknitwit 's new project editor (😱)! What patterns would you like to see in the pages of Knit Wit? Get at me! I love making dreams come true. ✨especially if alpaca are involved.
I may have accidentally made a crazy quilt but I can really never tell until it's quilted because I find unquilted quilt tops to be the most depressing thing ever. I think I might replace the center square of cream pocho with blue... 🤷🏼♀️
Draw me like one of your French girls
Speckles for my freckles
🎶 this could be us but you knitting 🎶
Finally, one corner that doesn't look like a disaster! Remind me never to move the studio, finalize Fall production AND design the new Spring collection at the same time. When you do 3 things at once, everything moves at a snails pace.
Dark playground, party of one! PS: a great thing about compulsively buying fabric everywhere you travel is the reminders of those trips when you finally get around to sewing with it! Oh hey Mumbai. What's up Arequipa.
Fabric is done, time to make a vest 🌸 what else is there to make from hand woven besides things made from rectangles? I don't know that I know enough to break the rules, at this point!

Hola Pom poms!
I had the pleasure of speaking with @sophrscott and @lydia_shmidia of @pompommag for the Pom cast! We discussed our relationships to color, how I got started in textiles, and the inspiration behind @poppyandpima among other fabulous topics ... you can listen to the full podcast on itunez! Fair warning: I'm from LA. I say "like" a lot. But, see I'm self aware about it so that makes it ok 🙃
THANK YOU THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes. I spent the day getting a massage, undo-ing the massage warping the loom, and then @a__lake took me to a fabulous dinner. Feeling lucky 💕
Thanks, Alex, for the new whip! Best birthday gift ever. 💕
Work in progress vibes 🌿
I left for 10 days and spring went and sprung itself. The city is in bloom!

More Arpillera fun! 🌸☘️🌺🌸🌹🌷🌻🌺🌼💐I got this one for my mom, who is the reason I am obsessed with these! 🌸🌷🌹🌺🌼🌻I'd keep it for myself but at about 1 meter square, there's no room for it in my apartment. It's gigantic!
