I thought today would be a good time to put up a “Works in Progress” post. 2016 seems to have given me a lot of opportunity (or possibly inspiration) to work on creative pursuits. So here it is, in a visual presentation, the current works in progress.
Carving, wood burning and painted accents. This piece when completed will be a ring dish.
Adding more Canadiana into the knit line at www.handmade-canada.com . These pieces are not on line yet but will be coming soon.
Natural dyeing of wool…..a lot of natural dyeing.
Carving spoons the perfect size for the sugar bowl. Large spoons are next on the list thanks to a brand new gouge.
Lots of “road knitting” while working on larger pieces. This will be a Cowichan inspired pillow cover.
Still working on the Roe Islet series of paintings both on panel and paper. The large squares measure 2 ft. by 2 ft., while the paper works are larger.
Handmade toggles with wood burned embellishments will be decorating new knit items in the near future.
A lot of items being worked on at the moment. Most of these images are from my Instagram accounts, it is where I post my most up to date works in progress. The accounts are @handmadeincanada and @debramhunter ; feel free to follow if you like to see quick visual posts.
What is up next? More natural dyeing, more toggles, knit cuffs, more spoons and finishing a painting in progress. Hopefully soon a few of these new pieces will be available on www.handmade-canada.com .

Ten new Coffee Press Sweaters have just been completed. This batch will be available at Woods On Pender (Pender Island, BC, Canada) very shortly.
Coffee Press Sweaters both protect the coffee press and keep your coffee warm while adding a little style to your table.
Each Coffee Press Sweater is made of 100% Canadian wool, milled in Alberta. The wool is dyed by hand in natural dyes and the sweaters are knit by hand. This collection features dyes of chamomile, pomegranate, turmeric, madder and indigo.
This selection features the resort’s logo and colors, however we can accommodate other colors and patterns if you have something special in mind as each piece is made completely by hand.
If you are interested in a Coffee Press Sweater, feel free to email Debra at email@example.com .
