Our incredibly talented, Alexa, has combined her love of photography and colour with a love of yarn and knitting to create her own line of yarn called Gourmet Crafter Yarns. These handpainted and kettle dyed yarns are a sight to behold. Not only are the colours exquisite, but the names and inspiration behind each yarn is described on her labels. Here are just a few samples of her creations, drop in to drool over the rest.
Granville Island Cherries was inspired by Alexa’s love of Granville Island and cherries. A reminder of hot summer days.
This yarn is called Moraine Lake, after the famous lake near Banff, and featured on our $20.00 bill. So very Canadian.
And, my personal favourite, Robins Egg, as I always marvel at the colour and delicacy of a robin’s egg.
Congratulations, Alexa, on your wonderful new creations and can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
