Winding yarn for pgh knit and crochet in the dining room.
sorry for the silence. color theory class (i’ll post about that soon) and indie knit and spin boutique were AWESOME and then i had sort of a down week, due to being so busy the week before.
but this last friday i had the opportunity, honor and fun of dyeing two exclusive colorways for knit the bridge.
i-phone pics by a friend as we were doing it. better pics soon! all 80 skeins have been washed and are currently drying in my basement.
you can read more about them here, also about ways other than knitting and crocheting that you can support knit the bridge and maybe get your hands on some of these. i’ll keep you posted.
in the near future you can expect a knit the bridge day at the studio where you can come and see the colorways in person!
happy woolie new year – you can read my january newsletter here.
i’m planning to bring new colors of falkland in for open studio tonight. and i have been neglecting updating the spinning fiber in the shop so it will be the first to go up this round.
i have so much more than what’s in the shop! whoops ;)
lots! of new colors in the shop. i’ve been doing some designing with this yarn lately, and hope to do some more. next up is hopefully a shawl. this is just about my perfect shawl weight.
update in the shop!
finished knit! and i blocked the shawls, but haven’t gotten photos yet.
of course, i couldn’t resist putting it on my babe who is no longer a year old (the size it is), and it looked like a cute little tunic. and he didn’t want to take it off which warms a mom’s heart. some day i will write up the pattern!
new colors can be found here!
contrary to what this blog has espoused this summer, i have been knitting! i knit these two shawls… and am finishing up my pi shawl. ahem. yes, that one has sat around for a long long time.
both are made with snapdragon fingering and are unblocked. i need to clean my home studio in order to have space to block. alas. soon hopefully!
and there has also been re-skeining going on… because i need to fill these shelves in the new studio space! woot!
p.s. if you’re in the pittsburgh area, i recommend visiting the studio blog. i’ll talk about classes, get togethers, and other stuff that has to do with the physical space.
