Hey everyone! I finally added some items to the Cabin Knits Shop just in time for you to get any Christmas orders in! There’s a little bit of everything, so take a little gander and see if there’s anything that suits your fancy (or a friend’s fancy). If you’re in Canada, make sure to place your orders by December 17 to make sure it’ll get to it’s destination in time for Christmas, or by December 12 (TOMORROW!) if you’re in the US.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season. Don’t forget to make times for the ones you love; it can be easy to get busy and overwhelmed in a season that should be about peace and stillness. Wherever you are, and whomever you’re with, may your days be merry and bright!
It’s that time again, when we head out on tour playing music for people in far away places, and I’ll be bringing my suitcase of knitted creations with me! Since we don’t have any more huge projects to type up for the Peak Performance Project, I plan to spend a great deal of driving time knitting bowties and cowls and other cozy accessories. Right now I’ve got lots of headbands, lots of bowties, a few cowls, and more.
Hopefully I’ll be adding a bunch of these projects to my Etsy shop, but in the meantime, come out to a show for some tunes, and maybe pick something up for the approaching winter, or get a head start on Christmas presents! I also love doing custom orders, so if there’s anything you fancy for yourself or someone you love, let me know and I’d love to try and make it for you!

The bow is a classic accessory, not just for pretty ladies, but also for handsome men. It has been adapted to take many forms, colours, and fabrics, and, thankfully, it has never gone out of style. I took a fresh take on this timeless classic with handknit hairclips and bowties and since I started making them and selling them at shows, they’ve definitely become one of my most popular creations!
I have these listed in the shop with a selection of colours to choose from, but they can be made to order in any colour you’d like. And if you have a wedding or special event coming up, why not order them for your bridal party or as a party favour?
Here’s Zoltan sporting the Handsome Man Bowtie and looking rather sharp, if I do say so myself!
And here’s a quick styling of the Pretty Lady Hairclip taken before our show in Edmonton the other night.
Head over to the Cabin Knits Shop to order one, or a few!
Today I added a new item to the shop and I’m really excited about it! This is my first time venturing into the world of jewelry, and I don’t think it’ll be my last. Lately I’ve been very inspired by handmade jewelry, and I love how there’s no limit to what you can do, and really no limit to what materials you can use.
Even though you can knit for every season, knitting is most often associated with winter. Cozy blankets, sweaters, socks and the like all make the cold winter months more bearable. I’ve been challenging myself to think of ways to incorporate knitting into projects that can be worn year round, and one of the first things I thought of was jewelry.
These tiny bow necklaces feature a very simple antiqued brass chain and a tiny knit bow that adds a splash of colour and a healthy dose of cute to your spring, summer, or really any outfit. It’s simple, but it makes a great statement.
These necklaces are made to order, so you can choose the colour of bow you’d like, and the length of chain. I personally like longer necklaces, but sometimes you need something shorter depending on how you like to wear it. Head over to my Etsy shop to order one for yourself or for a friend!
