A Thank You Gift From Us To You - For Supporting Us in 2023!
December 04, 20231 min read
Dear lovely Collective member,
it's almost time to wrap up the year! In just a few short weeks, I'll be taking a few days off to recharge, and I hope you do the same.
I want to say a very, very heartfelt thank you for supporting us in 2023. Every single contribution to the Collective helps keep the lights on here at Making Stories, and I deeply appreciate every single one of you. You make this work possible!
Also, I've so enjoyed meeting many of you during our Virtual Knit Nights! They've become one of my favorite things of the Collective – an hour every month to sit and knit and chat and see what you have on the needles.
The Knit Nights are open to everyone, regardless of level, and I'd love to see familiar faces and new ones alike again in our Google Meets room next year. As of 2024, we'll be meeting every first Tuesday of the month at 8pm CET (Berlin time), starting on February 6. Keep an eye on your emails for the link!
Lastly, I'd love to send over a little gift from us to. With the code CollectiveThankYou2023, you get 15% off in the webshop. Tuck it away for the next time you see something you love in the shop, or spend it now on something you can use for your next project – whatever you prefer! It doesn't have an expiration date :)
I hope you had a wonderful November so far! I've been leaning heavily into the coziness this fall – lots of evenings snuggled up under my favorite wool blanket on our couch with a candle lit, a soft WIP on my lap, finishing up final seasons of some of our favorite TV shows. (Which, for the most part were disappointing, sigh!)
As busy as this time of the year is, it also feels a little gentler this year than last. I'm not sure what it is - am I better prepared? (Now I probably jinxed it...) Is life with a four year old easier than with a three year old? (Yes, definitely, if you ask me.) Is it just luck? (I'll take it!)
as most of you are in the Northern hemisphere as well, I hope that you're enjoying the very October-esque weather that we've been having! It's a bit grey, with the occasional ray of sunshine or splash of rain, the leaves are definitely falling, and I've started to pull out the knitwear.
I decided that for this month's Collective blog post I would do a little roundup of 3 of my favorite fall things! I would also love to hear what you enjoy doing around this time of the year. There are so many great things to do - I sometimes wish I had a few extra days every week to squeeze them all in.
I've been sitting here for the past 10 minutes, gazing out the window at the slowly turning leaves, trying to figure out what I wanted to write about. Originally, I had planned a post about preparing a launch, but all of a sudden, I was sitting here and thought "oh, maybe that's a bit boring?" (Do let me know if you do not think it's boring and I'll write it up!)
As I let my gaze wander, I noticed a bowl full of fluffy yarn on my office shelf - Bérénice, our latest yarn addition, and I suddenly knew what I wanted to write about: I wanted to share with you how I decide which yarns to carry.
Finding a new yarn that fits into our webshop feels a little bit like magic and fate.
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.
