"Just the Doctor"

"Who are you, if not human? Who's not human? He's not human. He's not human? But he's got a Northern accent! Lots of planets have a North."

You know it! Dr Who yarn and fiber! I was asked by a customer in Australia to come up with some yarn based on two of the characters in the new episodes of Dr. Who which got me thinking about creating an entire collection. I had never watched the new episodes so I checked the netflix instant que, found all the seasons, and then started watching. My husband and I LOVE Sci Fi TV shows and movies and we were having such a good time watching the show that I really almost forgot to get the collection together! I unveiled the new stuff a couple weeks ago but I updated the shop recently with more colorways added. I have even more ideas that I'm planning to dye up so there will be lots more to come!

Fall is here!

Fall is finally here and I have lots of fall and Halloween colorways that I have been dyeing up. As always if you see anything that I am sold out of but you want to order you can send me an email and I can make up a custom order. I am in the process of working on a new colorway line (teaser it's Sci Fi based big surprise!) that I hope to unveil in about 2 weeks. I am also looking into adding a new spinning fiber to the line up but I haven't made any decisions yet and if there is something you would like to see send me an email.

Now that it is cooling off I have been planning to spend more time sitting out on the patio with my wheel. I love to sit outside to spin but during the summer it's too hot to do that. I have a few projects that I am planning to get started on for fall and winter. I recently finished a tea cozy that I started knitting while laying out at the pool for that last time this season. The water at the pool that day was freezing so it was a perfect time to get some sun and knit. I can't tell you how many funny looks I got this summer because I like to take my knitting to the pool! I just started The Lacey Hug-Me-Tight pattern out of "Knit 2 Together" today using some black alpaca DK weight that I got from my supplier. I have noticed those circular cardigans more and more when I'm out shopping so I figured knitting one of those up was in order. The next project after the cardigan I finally want to get started on is a pair of the mermaid gloves based on the sock pattern Pomatomus by Cookie A. I was given a skein of Wollmeise in a swap (because I'm one of the luckiest girls in the world) about a year ago but I have been afraid to touch it. Since I'm finally ready to knit it up I was looking for the perfect pattern to show it off and remembered how I wanted to knit those gloves and I think the Wollmeise would be perfect! Life has been entertaining to say the least this summer but now that I will be able to be inside more I am hoping to remember to blog more and yes I will be doing a new podcast soon. I would have done one before but laziness prevailed. Happy Knitting and Happy Spinning!

Alice In Wonderland!

Everything is listed and ready to purchase! Alice In Wonderland was my inspiration for this fabulous collection. I am planning on adding more colorways after I get to see the movie but for now this is what my inspiration drove to produce. I am so excited about this collection and I have to say that my personal favorites are Mad Hatter Cheshire Cat and Alice in the Garden. I am planning on dying fiber based on the same colorways so if you are a spinner at heart there will be plenty of goods for you too! Happy Knitting!

New Collection Coming Out Today!

It is time for another new collection! This one I have been working on and thinking about for a few weeks. I am really excited that I was able to get it together this early and when you see what it is you will know what I mean by early. I was flying a bit blind with this one because so far I have only had internet photos for reference but I am planning on adding more colorways later (again when I reveal what the collection actually is in my next post you will understand) Don't forget to check back for more podcasts I am planning on doing interviews with lots of my favorite people!
