Deep Winter Wonderland
If Snow Days are your best days, you'll love cozying up to Special Release No. 2: In the Cabin. Travel through snowy woods, across frozen ponds and discover the secret pleasures of this slow season while dreaming of a cabin getaway mid-winter. Away from the complexities and complications of everyday life, find the time to sleep in, snuggle up to read a book and begin a new project. Relish long weekends with a beautiful new project, or explore the quiet of a world freshly dipped in snow while sledding, skating, or snowshoeing in cozy winter accessories and sweaters.
By Hand Special Release No 2 includes many inspiring projects for you to make at home. Through this Special Release, discover a variety of perfect projects for fireside crafting. Discover a new love for flannel in the form of a sewn capelet or puff quilt. Try your hand at counted cross stitch with a sweet cabin scene from Pigeon Coop Studios, or cast on a new knitting project from Anne Hanson, Andrea Hungerford or Hannah Thiessen. Photographer Jenn Bakos shares an inside look at how maple syrup is made, and takes us on a journey of projects and recipes for all things campfire: aromatic firestarters, flame-cooked meals and cast iron make major appearances.
