So Faded Kits

If you enjoyed the Find Your Fade Shawl as much as me, you were probably really excited to hear about Andrea Mowry’s new pattern, the So Faded sweater!

I am all about this, and since I’m working on my own So Faded right now, I can say what a great pattern it is. So many options, and as a top-down, seamless knit, it’s easy to try it on as you go and make it fit exactly the way you want. The simplicity of the style is perfect for featuring hand-dyed yarns, so I’m working on some killer fade kits.

Right now, the pictured kit is available for pre-order, expected to ship on or before May 16th. I also plan to work up a whole bunch of OOAK kits. I’m using two different base options, Funny Farm, a super soft Merino/Cashmere/nylon yarn, and Twisted, a plump, 2-ply sock yarn. Expect to see these start popping up in shop the week of May 12th.

Joji Locatelli Mystery Wrap Kits

Joji Locatelli is doing a Mystery Knit Along, available for sign-up on April 18th. It’s been four years since her last one, so I’m especially excited for this. The MKAL is going to be a five-color wrap. With her guidance, I’ve put together the two kits pictured above, which will be available to order between April 18th and April 25th.

I’m only dyeing a limited number of these kits, and they will be just perfect for what Joji’s got up her sleeve. You’ll receive them in the mail in time for the first clue on May 12th, and I’ll even wind them for you if you’d like. Each kit is comprised of five full skeins of my Madhouse fingering yarn, which is 100% Superwash Merino wool. I’ll be making one myself, and I can’t wait to see all our wraps taking shape!

Also new in shop are spring mini sets. Take a look, and embrace your crazy!

Grand Opening of Asylum Fibers

Has anyone ever told you you’re crazy? Not just in general, but when it comes to your “unhealthy” obsession with yarn? Well, we as crafters are far from ordinary, and I say, “Embrace your crazy!”

I’m thrilled to announce the grand opening of Asylum Fibers. At 10pm EST on Friday, February 24th, I hope you can join me to celebrate, either by shopping or through the sorcery known as Facebook Live.

Asylum Fibers offers small batch, hand dyed yarns, with an emphasis on what I call “Chaos Colorways.” These non-repeatable batches will be included in every store update. I will also be offering regular colorways, including Bad Bad Girl, Holy Exorcism, Hydrotherapy, Metrazol, Moody, Redrum, The Shower Scene, and Voices. You get the idea, right?

Everything in the shop will be at least 25% off for the first month because I’m just so dang jolly about this whole thing.
