Fiber Festival of New England 2018

Another FFNE is in the books. Thanks to everyone that stopped by to say, “hi!”

I had awesome neighbors – Fishbelly Fiber Works, Three Bags Full Studio, Country Yarns, Molly Girl Yarn, A Hundred Ravens, Going Gnome, and Saori Worcester.

And saw my friends at Katrinkles and Dirty Water Dyeworks.

I saw some gorgeous Cormo gradient kits for mitts, hats, and small projects at the Subito Farm booth. They also had finished mittens for sale!

Lanart had beautiful alpaca socks. I managed to escape without buying a pair, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for them at other festivals. My cold-footed husband and son would love them.

My next show isn’t until 2019 at Slater Mill‘s annual Knitting Weekend. Hope too see you all there!

Inktober 2018

I’ve been feeling a little bored with myself and my yarn work lately. I thought doing something different would help, so I’m participating in this year’s Inktober on Instagram.

There are a few different prompt lists to choose from, but I’m working from the one Jake Parker put together.

I’m enjoying it so far! It’s fun figuring out a yarn-y take on the prompts. My favorites so far :

“Chicken” – Autodesk Sketchbook

“flowing” – Adobe Draw

“whale” – pen and ink

“guarded” – Adobe Sketch

“clock” – pen and ink

#yarnlovechallenge wrap up

The #yarnlovechallenge was a photo-a-day project hosted by Mary Heather Browne and Christina B of Ravelry.


I loved seeing everyone’s choices for the prompts! I can’t keep up with these type of “challenges” every month, but it’s nice to have prompts every once in awhile to help me post more regularly.

The Annual Big Summer Sale is coming!

I’m gearing up to list some new things including a small selection of 150g Maki, test colorways, and select Maki from the Come as You Are Tripping Yarn Balls club. These special items won’t be included in the 20% off sale, BUT they will be listed at a special price (some more than 20% off!)

Keep an eye out for sneak peeks of the Season 11 Yarn of Letters colorways. They will go live in September!

Finally! A Gradient Rainbow

P1110430You guys asked for it and I’ve been working on it. Because of my multi-layered dye process, it’s taken a while, but it’s here: a true gradient rainbow yarn.

P1110445I have decided to discontinue the striping Maki, but Loud and Proud will always be available in a mini skein set and on fiber. I will be replacing the striping Rainbow in the Dark with this:

P1110447The new yarns and dyed-to-order spots will go live on Monday, April 4 at Noon. To celebrate, in stock rainbow yarns will be on sale for a limited time! I will also be introducing my newest base, Terran Sport Sock a squishy and strong SW Targhee/nylon blend perfect for fast knitting socks.
