Shawl Club 2016 - Little Luxuries

Elizabeth and I have been working since last spring on putting together our very first Sweet Paprika Shawl Club, and we're super excited to finally get to share it with the rest of the world. Sign-ups are now open, but spots are limited!
What is a Shawl Club?
A shawl club can be many things, but usually it consists of either several shawl patterns, or patterns matched with yarn, that are released exclusively to members over a given period of time. There are some great ones out there, and we were inspired to put together a club of our own that includes not only exclusive patterns and the yarn to knit them with, but some other little treats to enjoy.
The Inspiration:
When we first started thinking about this club, we wanted to make each package something that members will be excited to open - and to include everything you need to sit down and enjoy casting on your shawl. Since tea is an essential component of a good knitting session around here that was one of the first things we thought of to include! We also wanted this to be a collaborative project, bringing on board some of our favourite designers and artisans.
The Yarn and Patterns:
When planning out this club, we were careful to keep in mind the time of year that members will receive their packages. In April we'll be sending out our Grazioso silk and linen blend with light and breezy shawlette pattern by Kira Dulaney, perfect for springtime. In June members will receive Arietta, our wool and silk laceweight blend and our favourite summer knitting yarn, with a delicate circular wrap pattern by Elizabeth Sullivan. The last club package in August will include our Messa di Voce fingering-weight superwash merino, with a cozy semi-circular shawl pattern by Jennifer Wood, just in time to start thinking about warmer knits for winter.
The Little Luxuries:
As I already noted, tea was a natural choice for us when deciding what to put in the Shawl Club packages, so we've teamed up with Puretea, a local small business specializing in high quality loose-leaf teas. We're also very happy to be collaborating with Fancy That - Creations by Francine to include a more knitting-specific goodie in each package too!
How to Join:
Becoming a member is easy! Just go to our sign-up page and choose which colour of yarn you would like to receive in each package. Shipping is included in the price, so make sure to choose the correct destination.

We only have 30 spots in this limited-edition club, available while supplies last! We'll also be including a little something extra in the April package for the first five members to sign up.

Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe
Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe

by Debbie Sullivan August 20, 2020 12 Comments

The story of this pattern starts back in 2008 when Elizabeth and I, along with our sister Margaret, decided that we wanted to make a blanket for our parents as a gift for their 25th wedding anniversary. Elizabeth suggested we base our blanket design on the traditional Attic Windows quilting pattern, and she came up with a simple technique to knit the squares.

We wanted to share the basic technique for the Attic Windows squares, because it's so adaptable, and so much fun to play with! So, we decided to create a free "recipe" version of the pattern, that shares the basic technique as well as a step-by-step guide on planning your Attic Windows project.

Recipe: Green Mint Iced Tea
Recipe: Green Mint Iced Tea

by Debbie Sullivan July 23, 2020 1 Comment

It's only the middle of July, and we've already had some significant heat waves here in Montreal this year, so I've been swapping out my normal afternoon pick-me-up of a hot  black tea for iced tea instead. I've recently discovered this simple method for making my iced tea using green tea instead of black and I've been making it so often that I thought I should share the recipe
