Meet the lady behind Gourmet Crafter Yarns!

I had a chance to catch up with Alexa Ludeman who is the dyer behind Gourmet Crafter Yarns at Knit City in Vancouver in October.  She also collaborates with her friend Emily Wessel to create beautiful designs and has two books out now – 9 Months of Knitting and Pacific Knits.  In this interview we talk about how she got started into dying and what her inspiration is!  The Antler Cardigan we discuss in the interview is pictured below!


Some Fibre Fun

I am back in Tofino after a fun weekend at Knit City in Vancouver.  It was a fun weekend of yarn, classes and fun people.  I had a chance to catch up with my teacher Kate Atherley from Toronto who taught me how to knit socks!  It was great to see her again.  Also chatted with Alexa Ludeman from Gourmet Crafter and came home with LOTS of her yarn which will be available on the online store soon.

Since I was already in the Vancouver area I also made a stop over to SweetGeorgia’s studio!  It was so amazing to see where all the magic happens.  Had a chance to talk to her about what inspires her.  Stay tuned for that video blog.  Will be coming in the next couple of weeks!  For now the pictures will have to do!  To see more photos of my weekend in Vancouver check out Knits by the Sea’s Facebook page!
