Purple Oatmeal

I’ve been in a sweater knitting mood lately and when I went on a quest to find the perfect quick knit sweater for fall, I was not disappointed when I came across Jane Richmond’s Oatmeal Pullover on Ravelry. Scrambling through my stash, I found the perfect yarn for the pattern and conveniently already had knitted…

‘Newt’ 3 ply handspun

Stephanie from Loop Fiber Studios is a color and fiber genius! Recently, I purchased one of her bullseye bumps in colorway ‘Newt’ and I am always blown away at her color combinations and gradient transitions.

When I was recently looking through my hand-spun yarn stash, I picked out some fiber dyed by Three Waters Farms that I spun into a lovely 2 ply. I believe I have close to 800 or so yards between 6 skeins. The fiber is a mixture of Polwarth wool and silk and let me tell…

Pittsburgh Indie Knit & Spin November 15, 2014

When Cosy posted that she was looking for vendors for this year’s Indie Knit & Spin, I jumped at the chance- and so glad that I did! I began prepping for the show in September and pretty much it came down to the wire! I was up until 2 am the night before and boy,…

Fiber Goodies from Turquoise Owl Fibers

While I did not actually formally participate in TDF (Tour de fleece) 2014, it didn’t stop me from purchasing some new fiber goodies from Holly at Turquoise Owl Fibers on Etsy. Her puni fiber prep is one of the best I’ve come acros and I’m in love with the colors that she blends. Two of…
