open house – SALE!!

hi fibery friends,
i am writing to let any of you in the pittsburgh area know that i am closing out my yarn lines. i am not planning to stop dyeing, but i think there will be little to none for the next 3 years. my husband is entering a full time doctorate program as well as continuing to work and i believe it will take all of my energy to feed and take care of the littles, along with work on Indie Knit and Spin and designing.

note: this is a pretty pic, not a pic of the yarn i have left

and so with that in mind, i am selling the yarn that i have left at $10 a skein (usually $16) and am offering it up to pgh folks first. if you are interested in coming shopping or want to know if i have any yarn of a particular weight/color, send me an email at cosymakes(!at)gmail(dot!)com. i have a pretty flexible schedule for folks who want to come look.


p.s. if you are not in pgh and really really want some yarn, i’ll listen to your pleas at that email too ;)

Knit the Bridge!

If you haven’t checked out this awesome Pittsburgh community-wide yarn bombing – please do!  I believe it will be perhaps the largest yarn bombing… ever?  Click here to check it out.
It has been a pretty awesome community fiber arts project to be involved with. So even though I didn’t knit any panels, I did do some designing and dyeing for them.  The designs and the yarn are now available in this indiegogo campaign. Also, cool t-shirts and other fun stuff.

p.s. here’s a summer newsletter!

april @ the studio

it is the last month at the studio!  check out what is happening here.  there’s lots going on.  you can also expect to see a (baby) sweater design workshop towards the end of the month (probably the 27th). clearly we are going out with a BANG!

one very special event is the re-skeining of the exclusive Knit the Bridge colorways that i (and a few friends) dyed… happening on the 14th.  good stuff.  i hope if you haven’t made it to the studio yet, you can come to one of these events.  plenty of them are just of the knitting/chatting/spinning sort.
