Do you have a skein of variegated yarn that you love? Perhaps you are unsure how to use it. One & Done is a pattern designed specifically for variegated yarn, using garter, rib and dropped stitches and can even be made with two skeins. You will love watching the strands formed between stitches as you drop them before knitting the border. One & Done is simple, portable, and made to celebrate your coveted yarn!

Here at Pandia’s Jewels the black flame candle has been lit!

And now the Sanderson Sisters are running amok in my dye lab. They keep trying to use my dye pots to make some kind of potion.

There is a very limited number of yarns, self-striping colors, and kit available that have been inspired by the movie Hocus Pocus. Are you brave enough to grab some yarn while you can before it all runs out?

Fright Night

IU

Introductory priced at $3.99 on Ravelry until October 1, no coupon code needed. Happy Haunting, I mean Knitting 🙂

What do you do when your next door neighbor is a Vampire? Well in the case of a knitting pattern designer, you design socks with a Vampire theme and hope for the best! These socks were inspired by one of my all time favorite Halloween movies, Fright Night and my love for Vampire horror movies in general.

The Fright Night socks are knitted from the cuff down and available in two sizes, adult medium and large (8 1/2” – 9 1/2” in foot circumference). Stranded colorwork bats encircle the leg and a striped heel flap adds a bit of pop. Knitted up in Undead Yarn’s Vamphyri in the Graveyard colorway with Black and Red accents.

They will really knock the socks off the Vampire lover in your life!

There has been a serious shop update at Cedar Hill Farm Company! New colorways have been added to nearly every available base, especially to Rocket Sock and Traveler, because sock knitting is in full swing and Socktober is on the horizon. You’ll love our selection of self-striping and multi-colored yarns that not only work up like a dream in your hands, but are also completely colorfast and machine washable.

We have also begun carrying kits for two patterns: All About That Curve (ankle socks with a Sweet Tomato Heel) and Inverse Mitts (fingerless stranded color work mitts). Each kit contains notions necessary for pattern completion. Choose your colorways or let us do it for you. Both kits create perfect accessories for the much-anticipated cooler weather of Autumn.

In addition to all of the new yarns, we also have plenty of new project bags to choose from. Our ever-popular two-grommet bags are perfect for small take-along projects and fit easily inside a purse, tote, or backpack. Our set-in zipper design allows you to keep your project tucked safely inside the bag without the worry of catching your yarn in the the zipper. Our sweater-size bags feature and nylon webbing wristlet and are just the right size for taking your sweater project on an outing. Both types of project bags are completely machine washable/dryable and are fully lined with no visible seams.

Finally, a new shop section has been added: Needles & Such. Beginning in September, Chiaogoo Red Lace needles and other needle favorites will be available, as well as a variety of other knit-knacks like fun project keepers and stitch marker sets, including the full collection of Dr. Who project keepers.

Stop by the shop today to see what’s new and replenish your stash or pick up a few holiday gifts (because you’re already getting a jump on your gift list). Knitting season is definitely upon us!

  • stella-2

Let’s make yarn! I’ll provide all the materials and equipment for the beginning handspinner as we explore the transformation of fleece into yarn. We’ll start with a washing a raw fleece and learn the technical details of fiber preparation. At the wheel, we see how twist and ply affect a finished yarn, and we’ll experiment with a variety of fibers, from breed-specific roving, to camelids and silks. No experience necessary. Class size limited to 6.

After the class, the studio will be open to the public from 3-5 p.m. I’ll be demonstrating Eco-print natural dyeing with botanicals on silk scarves in the studio, and my pet Shetland sheep will be thrilled to show off their tricks (eating grass and, well, eating grass).

If you’re not able to make it this weekend, learn more about and register for these upcoming fall and winter classes at the Middle Brook Fiberworks website:

Thursday, November 10 – Dyeing for Yarn
Sunday, November 13 – Begin to Spin
Thursday, January 26 – Spinning for Texture
