snapdragon sport update!

snapdragon sport update

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.

snapdragon light fingering

update in the shop!


finished knit! and i blocked the shawls, but haven’t gotten photos yet.


this one will be at the Grand Opening of the studio this sunday, if you care to stop by and check it out.  it’s main color is rainbow chard light. raveled here.

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!

and more yarn…

and i have been knitting! i’ll try to update you on that some time soon ;)

shawl summer!

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!

the beginning

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.

now is the time…

for dyeing. see that big brown box under these newly dyed skeins of snapdragon fingering? it’s full of yarn. and there’s a sister box too.

big boxes of yarn

and that brings me to the point. i am dyeing all the yarn i need for the next several months… and so if you have any particular yarn you’ve been wanting to try in any particularish colorway, with no obligation to buy you can right now send a little note my way or comment on this blog post and your wish will be my command.  unless, of course, i already dyed that colorway.  i don’t do exact colors, as you probably know, but if you want a dark bluish purple – i could totally try to get that for you.

i have some of each of my yarns to dye still, so let your voice be heard!
