Dear Reader,

I can't believe it's Tuesday again! Somehow, the weeks just fly by in a blur right now. Trying to soak up the glorious fall days here in Berlin, recovering from colds / trying to keep them at bay, staying on top of things now that Claire has left and preparing all the goodness we are launching this cold season - no wonder time feels at lightspeed right now.

I am good, though. Genuinely good. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out about Claire's departure - I am as sad (well, I think, maybe a bit sadder, even) as you are about it. But I know that it's good for her and for us, and I'm excited to dive back into content creation!

Speaking of diving: Yesterday saw me diving head first into product photography for our latest two yarn additions: Hudson + West Co is coming to Making Stories!!

We're launching tomorrow, October 12, at 9am CEST:

I am SO incredibly excited and honored to be carrying their two beautiful, 100% US-made bases Forge (worsted weight) and Weld (fingering). We're their first European stockist, and so I'm preparing a lot of content to introduce you to these yarns and the fabulous company behind them. I want you to know them and love them as much as I do!

First up is our latest Get To Know video - it's up on Youtube now, go take a look!

And then don't forget to come back to the webshop tomorrow at 9am CEST for some seriously squishy goodness (and Hudson + West Co's brand-new Autumn / Winter 2022 collection!)!

In other news: Two Knitflix recommendations!

I know, I'm probably the last person on earth, and if you have already watched both of these, just ignore this, buuut...

... I am genuinely excited to snuggle up under my favorite blue wool blanket every night, take out my latest WIP (sneak peek on IG!) and dive into these worlds.

Hawkins: Both David and I loved every Stranger Things season so far, and Season 4 is no exception. Yes, I know, we're half a year late, but there's something about watching a seriously creepy series this time of the year that can't be beat. Plus, it's exciting to see the storyline develop in multiple locations!

Middle Earth: Ohhh. I did not want to watch Rings of Power for fear of being disappointed, but then I caved and I'm SO glad I did. The costumes. The light. The acting. EVERYTHING. I still haven't watched Friday's episode, so that's what I'm looking forward to tonight!


Last Call: 1 October Sock Box & 1 A Year of Socks Subscription left!

I am SO thrilled you loved them as much as I do! We're down to one last October Sock Box and one last A Year of Socks Subscription!


Last, but not least...
