I first met Dianna Walla in 2013 at VK Live in Seattle. Dianna had just finished working on a design for Brooklyn Tweed and was working on a collection of her own. Dianna contacted me a little while later to see if I could help her find some locations for her upcoming photoshoot for her new designs. Driving around Carnation, I got to know her better and after seeing more of her beautiful designs I knew I wanted Dianna to design a pattern for Tolt.
Dianna has spent time in Norway and speaks the language so I thought a Nordic inspired design would be a perfect choice. I really wanted to use a US-sourced yarn just like how we used Imperial for the Tolt Hat and Mitts. I decided on Heirloom Romney. Romney are a "long wool" breed and their wool is strong and long-lasting making it ideal for outerwear. Heirloom Romney yarn is produced by Jeane DeCoster of California for Fancy Tiger Crafts, a craft shop in Denver, Colorado owned by Jaime and Amber.
I was thrilled with the way the Hearth Sippers turned out and couldn't wait to share the design with all of you. Dianna did an amazing job with this pattern and it works well for the entire family.
Jaime of Fancy Tiger Crafts contacted me last week and said that they were going to do a Hearth Slipper Knit-A-Long (KAL), and I asked if Tolt could join in the fun.
