#SustainablistDesignVote: What do you want to knit this winter?

#SustainablistDesignVote: What do you want to knit this winter?


This first voting is all about determining what type of garment or accessory you like best! This design will be available (at 50% off for everyone who participates in #SustainablistDesignVote, by the way!) this winter, so consider what you'd want to knit in a few months. We'll get to details such as top-down vs. bottom-up for sweaters, shawl shapes and all that jazz a little later, so for now we'll start with something easy and determine a type of design. This is the one decision I usually make first whenever I start working on a design, unless I'm sold on another detail such as a specific stitch pattern already. Is it gonna be a pullover, hat, shawl or cardigan? I'm so excited to see what you'll end up choosing!

Meet: Vanilla Heirloom!

Meet: Vanilla Heirloom!

Our latest design, Vanilla Heirloom, is now available, and I haven't been this excited for a new pattern release in quite some time. And you know why? With everything we do here at The Wool Club, we aim to contribute to a more sustainable, fair and eco-friendly way of living and making, and this new design feels like an important step in that. To us, an important aspect of sustainable making is providing knitters with patterns that you can use to make pieces that'll last you a long time and that will be loved and worn a lot.

Digging Deeper

Are you good at keeping secrets? I couldn't be more excited that something I've been keeping a secret will be revealed very soon – the Hometown Cardigan design I contributed to Taproot Mag's upcoming issue REST – and I wanted to share with you that they just brought back their Digging Depper series! It's a look behind the scenes of how some of the pieces from their magazine came to live, and I feel so honoured to get to share a bit more about my work in this first feature. Find it here if you like, I hope you'll enjoy it!

The Reason Why & Where We're Headed

The Reason Why & Where We're Headed

If you're following my journey on Instagram, you might have seen my bio change again and again over the past couple of weeks. With the end of the year approaching, I’ve been thinking a lot about this past first year of being self-employed and about where I want to take my business, and, as random as it may sound, the challenge of condesing all of that into 150 characters helped me learn more about the value I want to add with my work ...

A Winter Breath Wrap of My Own

A Winter Breath Wrap of My Own

Given how much time I spend with yarn, you might think half of my wardrobe consists of handknits, but that's actually not true at all. With sample knitting and occasional gift knits, there's so little time in the day to squeeze in a personal project, and my handknits can be counted on one (and maybe a half) hand. When I recently found a couple of lovely people who will be knitting a few things for me in the future, I was over the moon - by the way, I'd love to hear from you if you'd be interested, just drop me a line at hello@the-wool-club.com! In addition to a fee comparable to sample knitting I'll of course provide high quality yarns ...

TWC knits: Jen's Powder Snow Cosy

Hello and welcome to the first feature of TWC knits! Many of us might now the phenomenon of falling down the Ravelry rabbithole – I'm definitely guilty as charged. Browsing through new patterns and projects can keep me busy for hours, and as a designer, stumbling upon new The Wool Club projects really makes my heart sing. I'm deeply thankful to each and every one of you who decides to invest their precious time to knit one of my designs, and I'd love to share your beautiful makes, so I created this new series to shine a spotlight on members of our wonderful community and their favourite TWC knits ...
