By Hand is a serial produced by Andrea Hungerford three times per year that explores locations around the country that have developed their own unique "maker communities" where people who love to make, love to learn to make, and love to support makers have found a common sense of purpose.
Each of these geographic "clusters" has its own unique characteristics, and those characteristics influence the artists who live and work there.
Road Trip Through Northern California
By Hand Serial Lookbook #13 includes four different sewing projects: two apparel pieces that are both easy to fit and easy to wear, as well as attainable for even a beginning sewist, or try working with waxed canvas and create a lunch tote project bag or a makers apron, both of which will become essentials for all of your future making endeavors.
Knitting patterns include Tamalpais by Julie Weisenberger, a cleverly constructed sleeveless top: a clean, classic design that goes with just about anything and can be worn year-round. Navigate Socks by Marceline Smith are the perfect opportunity to play with Sincere Sheep's rainbow of naturally dyed colors. Noriko Ho has designed Golden Poppy, a stunning colorwork cardigan knit in a subtle speckle with a complementary warm clay tonal solid - colors created specially for this project by Chase Clark of local yarn store Black Squirrel Berkeley. Andrea Hungerford, inspired by the dreamy naturally dyed palette of A Verb For Keeping Warm's Floating yarn, created a lacy ruana that marries shawl and cardigan into the perfect over-your-shoulders garment to ward off a cool breeze or the chill of a summer evening.
Projects and patterns are rounded out by clever clay candle holders that are surprisingly simple to make, and a delicious citrusy olive oil cake, inspired by an afternoon spent among the olive groves at Black Rock Ranch.
