Yarn Dyeing in the Sun

By |November 21st, 2015

Oh Lord, how I love dyeing.

Yarn, that is.

I don’t do as much of it as I would like, as my duties have mostly shifted to answering emails, listing new colors on the site, blogging, social media stuff, ya know. Etc. Love all those things too. I’m endlessly in awe of our dyers who take my crazy formulas and produce stunning results week after week. (Side note… if you decide to start a business, MOST of your time won’t be making the thing you love to make… just sayin’.)

But sinking your hands into dye, watching crazy colors appear on the […]

Adeline Crochet Shawl Pattern

By |October 22nd, 2015

Holy mother of pearl.

I never know how anything I create is going to be received.

A few products or patterns will turn out to be flops. Some will be home runs. Most will be somewhere in the middle.

Let’s just say this Adeline Shawl was a HUGGGGE and stunning home run.

20,000 people visited our site the first day to see it.

It was downloaded 5,000 times in the first 24 hours.

For the first time ever with one of my patterns, it was showing in the “Hot Right Now” patterns on Ravelry. Woot!

It was quite insane and fascinating. I had actually assumed since […]

How to Dye Yarn With Kool-Aid

By |October 21st, 2015

Dyeing yarn with Kool-Aid is a BLAST.

Have you ever wanted to try it? Well, here’s your chance.

I’ll walk you through all the steps, show you everything you need and then you can get started.

-It’s a wonderful craft to do with kids but they will need adult supervision.

-You’ll see what each color turns out to look like when applied to the yarn. Some of them are quite surprising.

-It smells AMAZZZZING.

-There really aren’t any rules. Glory be. But a few things to keep in mind: 1. Wool works best if you can get your hands on that. 2. You’ll need to […]

It’s Scary. Do it Anyway.

By |October 7th, 2015

“I would rather DIE than be doing this,” I thought to myself.

Overdramatic, extremist and hyperbolic as usual.

I was driving to talk to an accountant for my budding yarn business and was petrified.

This was a few years back when I was just getting started.

I needed an accountant. To continue on with my dream of growing my lil’ baby biz, I NEEDED an accountant.

But for whatever insane reason, my mind had created the idea that accountants were mean, old men plopped behind their massive desks, glaring at me through beady, suspicious eyes. Think, Jabba the Hutt.

I was sure I’d be interrogated, […]

Chandi’s Hat – Crochet Pattern

By |September 18th, 2015

Is this hat pattern not ADORABLE?

My friend Tara, of Mamachee Patterns designed it using my Superwash Pearlescent Merino/Silk Worsted Weight Yarn.

It comes in 3 sizes: Child, toddler and adult.

I just love the combination of stitches she used. It has a wee bit of a slouch too!

You can grab the pattern here.

The yarn colorway she used was Malachite, available here, but any skein from this category would work, if that colorway isn’t available.
