The folks at Quince & Co confess to a strong bias toward natural fibers, be they soft and sensuous or rustic and sturdy. They also think businesses can be good citizens—should be good citizens—without making too much of a fuss about it. The wool at Quince & Co is sourced from American sheep and other fibers come from earth friendly suppliers.

…There is a baby surprise jacket and a two needle baby sweater in my cedar chest for when my daughter has a wee one someday. I am curious, what is your personal favorite Elizabeth pattern? I know it would be so hard to pick, but what comes to mind first?
These are the designs that popped into my mind as the ones I have knitted most often:
- Saddle Shoulder EPS
- Tomten Jacket
- Ganomy Hat
- Two Needle Baby Sweater

Letter from Elizabeth Zimmermann to me. April 1982
I read a postcard sent to me by Elizabeth Zimmermann on Nov 21, 1980. It also has an original pen and ink drawing by Arnold Zimmermann, actually a self-portait, on his B.M.W with his goggles on and beard bristling in the wind.
