*NEW* celtic tree cowl pattern!

Celtic Tree Cowl – digital knitting pattern *buy it now* 5.50 USD.

Step into the magic circle of Celtic trees where fairies are known to dwell.
This never-ending cowl contains list of Celtic trees that also make up the Ogham. The Ogham (Oh-um) is an ancient Irish alphabet from around the 4th century based on trees, with each symbol or letter of the alphabet representing a certain native tree of the Celtic Nations. B = Birch etc. Writings in this ancient language can still be seen on standing stones throughout Ireland and in other parts of the British Isles. These trees were considered sacred and there were were harsh consequences for harming them. I hope you will enjoy staying warm within this healing circle of trees so well loved and protected by many of our ancestors!

The 25 trees are: Birch, Rowan, Alder, Willow, Ash, Thorn, Oak, Holly, Hazel, Apple, Vine, Ivy, Broom, Briar (Blackthorn), Elder, Fir, Hedge (Furze), Heather, Poplar, Yew, Aspen, Spindle, Beech & Woodbine (Honeysuckle), Gooseberry.  OOPS!  You may wonder why Gooseberry is missing?  Ask the faeries about a certain midnight snack they may pretend to know nothing about!  Note: Some of the letters are highly debated by scholars.  I took a bit of liberty with a few of my own interpretations. You can go deeper with this alphabet with a little research, as each of the trees also have specific meaning and can be used for meditation and reflection. I hope you will enjoy dreaming in the circle of trees.
Love, Stephanie xoxo

i like autumn

IMG_3264 hoot i think i might hear the first sighs of the leaves!  they are going to get sleepy soon.  wooooo i love fall!   i mean autumn… i try to remember to say autumn because not everyone says fall.  one time when i was living in london i was swinging on the swings in a small park… the air was getting crisp and the leaves were just starting to amber up and tumble… suddenly a little girl ran up and jumped on the swing next to me and started to swing….. i turned to her and said “don’t you just LOVE FALL!!!?” “um… no” she said.  “i dont like falling at all.  it hurts.  i fell off my bike on the way over here.” … 😛

so i just wanted to let you all know that ill be back next friday with a NEW PATTERN! hoooT! soo excited.  yes ive discovered that designing with a baby is.. um… HARD!  im finally getting some things done that ive been working on for a couple years.  hey the turtle finishes the race eventually right? speaking of the toddler here is a little update and a few pics from little woodson my little chunkcheek wonder boy.  hugs and lots of love and see you next friday! :*

*new pattern!* ~fern shawl~ and a KIT giveaway!

Have you ever wondered why faeries can be so hard to find? Why, it’s because of their wonderful woodland camouflage! They wrap leaves around themselves to stay hidden
and work wild magic. I think we should have some faerie camo too! Don’t you?
*see more details here*
*buy now here*


Ps. Here is the back view! Well, actually mine didnt look quite that good! This sample was knitted by Pauline Spinks and she is a pretty perfect knitter.  I had some loops and holes in mine, so I just went in afterwards and tightened them up and tucked in the rabid loops. Do you get rabid loops sometimes when you do colorwork? I do. Hey, Rabid Loops sounds like a cereal name. 🙂 Maybe not one I’d like to try though?… 🙂

 Leave a comment below to be entered to WIN the fern shawl KIT from Kitterly!
I’ll pick the winners on Monday so you have all weekend to play.

Extra special thanks to my photographer Lizzie Carter!
