Michaila Kapaskeli for DoubleCrochets

Today we are super happy to introduce to you Michaila Kapaskeli, a graphic designer, a flautist, and the artist that draw some Double Crochets illustrations for us!!!

We thank her for this aha-mazing illustration, at last we have our own unique illustration of her, we are really proud! I've always admired her style and the aesthetic of her work. It seems like this girl has something of Northen Europe, if she was a song she would be definitely written by a band of Nordic countries or at least by Pj Harvey! The ambient of her work reminds me the Northen lights and the melancholy of the winter. She expresses herself through the small details, and always leaves you with the taste of hope, like autumn afternoons' sun.

There are more!, we also had a choise of outfits!

You can check more of her work here, and of course you can contact her, if you want to commission an illustration at: michailakapaskeli (@) hotmail (dot) com!  

big kiss

Packaging and more

Here is some of the packaging we have done in the last year:

Our logo is usually handwritten on our little bags, and we have made some special packaging as well, depending on the occasion (1,2,3). Below you can see the packaging of our Fringe Earrings series, that is -oh my!- reused Film canisters!!

our card!!

and a silly photo,
nooo we haven't printed our name on coffee caps yet! 

and a silly gif we made with Veronika, last April, but were too shy to show it:
animated Veronica

see you soon!

Photo Review: KiP in Athens 2012

we love picnics, we do!
For the second year in a row we organised a picnic to celebrate the Knitting/Crocheting in Public Day (KiP Day) in Athens. We did it last year, and we wouldn't miss this year's!

 The place was the same, the Park of Freedom (near the Music House in Athens), same time, too, but almost different people! We had some regulars and some guest stars!

 Eleni, a member of our crochet team from last years, Artemis, a fellow crocheter and knitter, Dimi, also a member of our crochet club, Fotini, Eleana and Vicky who don't crochet but we love them equally, Panagiotis and Orestis (our brother and his amazing friend who both learned how to knit at last year's Kip) and finally unexpectedly Tasos arrived to surprise me and complete our company at this Kip!

We mostly crocheted, except Panagiotis who started knitting a cowl, Orestis, Fotini and Vicky learned how to make a chain, (basic crochet stitch). Artemis started a crocheted blouse with the bestest sand colored yarn, I was making some bows for our shop, Dimi was crocheting a gift and Panagiota was interrupting her work by blowing bubbles in the wind!

and we had some really good time! Vicky brought me the most amazing gift ever,  some purple alpaca yarn from Switzerland!! I was smitten! look at this amazing shade....
Still in search of a magnificent project for this yarn!

with a small delay, these are finally the photos that document what happened on the 16th of June 2012, to celebrate the international Knitting and Crocheting in Public day, by the Double Crochets!

so bye bye and thanks to everybody that showed up!
big kiss
Marietta and Panagiota
