I had to stop my bike and take a photo of this! Weeeeee! Such awesome stripes!!!
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned the Seven Sisters on here, they are sweet noisy little birds in Sri Lanka who always hang around together (like noisy sisters!) I miss them very much!
I was incredibly happy to find Vancouver's version yesterday hanging out in Granville Island, not quite as noisy (but just as talkative) Not shy (also like the Seven Sisters) and all hanging out together, so here I introduce to you, Vancouver's Seven Sisters!
My name is Rebecca Ward and I’m an obsessive knitter and tea drinker.
In my younger years I learnt and felt in love with the Arts & Crafts movement, recently I have come to realise that my desire for useful and beautiful probably came from this. Everything I design and make I want it to be useful and everything I purchase to do a job I want to be beautiful.
I love food, eating, and talking about food! For me, food should be healthy and delicious. With the cost of living increasing, staying at home and eating good food with friends makes so much sense. My belief is we all should be eating real food, not food which is over processed, full of chemicals and sugar. Food made with real ingredients with am emphasis on low sugar and no white carbs.
Whilst holidaying in Australia in the Christmas of 2012 I was taken to the beautiful town of Sassafras, where I visited a most wonderful Tea Shop (over 300 types of Tea) and a beautiful yarn shop. Standing there, absorbing the surrounding area I realised that I would one day love to run my own Knitting and Tea shop. The idea of Knit 1 Tea 1 was born.
I am currently selling my hand knit accessories through my Etsy shop. I love using luxury natural fibers; silk, cashmere, mohair, cotton to name a few. These are all hand knitted by myself, timeless, useful+beautiful accessories.
I am lucky to be living on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, I work as a Lingerie Pattern Technologist, a job I love for the intricate attention to detail and accuracy required to create a perfect package for the production of fashion lingerie.
