Hello friends! This is a super short post just to let you know that the migration of our blog to our shiny new website is taking a little longer than we hoped. While we work hard to get all our existing posts onto their new home, we will be continuing to post as usual with new content. We're so sorry for the delay!
In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about our previous blog posts, we invite you to check out our bi-monthly Podcast! We always chat about what's on the blog along with all the goings-on here at making Stories, and of course, what's on our needles! You can also come and visit us on Instagram where we post daily.
Love Hanna Lisa & Claire x

One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!
I'm thrilled to be back in this space, and with something really, really exciting at that! For the past year, I've been on the hunt for a sustainably-produced fluffy yarn - we used to carry Knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair which is delightful, but also... everyone has it now? So I was looking for something that was a little out of the ordinary, but also responsibly sourced, and as it goes with anything that involves mohair and silk, that was really hard.
Cue De Rerum Natura, who secretly have been working behind the scenes at exactly that yarn I'd been looking for: An "as sustainably as it can get" fluff yarn that works perfectly for a broad range of projects, from whispers of lace shawls to holding it together with more substantial yarns.
Hi lovelies! A very, very warm welcome to our official pattern preview of Issue 10 – Heirloom. Our Fall & Winter 2023 issue is dedicated to pieces that we love to knit and wear for years, and years to come, and that then become true heirlooms. Passing them on to a beloved friend or family member or tucking them away for the next generation, or the right recipient to come along - these designs will truly stand the test of time.
We're a delightfully tiny team dedicated to all things sustainability in knitting. With our online shop filled with responsibly produced yarns, notions and patterns we're here to help you create a wardrobe filled with knits you'll love and wear for years to come.
