Setting up the Sweet Paprika studio
As some of you know, Debbie and I had to move studios rather unexpectedly last August. Although it was very stressful at the time, Debbie managed to find us another studio within a week, and the new space is wonderful! But because we moved in in such a rush, we didn't have a lot of time to set everything up the way we wanted last fall. In an effort to start out the new year with a more organized and efficient work space, part of January was spent shopping for new shelving and storage bins. There are still a few things to be done, but it's really coming together. Here's a little photographic tour for you:
This is what the studio looked like when we moved all our stuff in
We still need a few more storage bins here, but it's getting there!

If you're in Montreal and want to come say hello and see the studio in person, please contact us! We're happy to have visitors, but we're not there every day so do make sure to make an appointment before dropping by.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Saltwater Mittens when we started carrying it last spring, and was delighted to find out earlier this year that there was a sequel in the works. Saltwater Classics is now here!
Saltwater Classics continues in the style of Saltwater Mittens, and includes several more mitten patterns, but it also includes many patterns for hats, caps and vamps. What are vamps? From what I can gather after reading The Great Vamp Debate, vamps are usually thick short socks that are worn as an extra layer inside boots or as a slipper indoors – with many regional variations of course. All I know for sure is that I definitely need a pair or two!
