Science is Real (Fingering Weight Mini Skein Set) from Three Fates Yarns

Science is Real is one of many new curated color sets from Three Fates Yarns. Six color sets contain 100 yards of each color and four color sets contain 40 yards of each color. I recently used them for a Toolbox Cowl and a Cuba Hat. They are particularly effective when paired with a contrasting color, making them great for shawls like Saturate, Find Your Fade or Solaris.

Three Fates Yarns is a one-person operated dye business based out of my home in Oregon. I travel to four shows a year in the Pacific Northwest and can otherwise be found on Etsy or through Instagram.

Spirit Trail shop update!

The Spirit Trail Fiberworks shop has been updated with loads of new yarns and colors. This update is primarily DK and worsted, but there are more fingering weight kits, too, as well as kits with super fun vegan pompoms! There are loads of speckled yarns, and tonal solids. I’m happy to help put together color kits for customers, too; just email me to let me know what you’re looking for.

Brand new yarns and kits are shown on the Shop Update page, but there is stock in other bases, too. Just click on the individual yarn pages to see more. I have lots of Brigantia (DK weight Polwarth/silk) and Zalti (100% U.S. grown and processed Targhee), as well a Birte and Verdande (both Superwash Merino, Cashmere, silk). It seems silly to be thinking about sweaters when it’s summer, but I know autumn is just around the corner and I’m already starting to mull over my Rhinebeck sweater. These things take time, right?!

Two new additions to my shop this update are sock/knit blanks, and a market featuring some of my favorite tools and accessories. I had a ton of fun dyeing these blanks, and there are some really fun, wild colors. And, if you’re not a huge lover of knit blanks but love one of these colors, just leave me a comment on your order form and I’ll happily unwind it, soak and wind it into a center pull ball for you.

The market section includes an adorable set of signature stitch markers from Katrinkles Knitting Jewelry, plus notions bags, mugs, project bags, and more.

Check it all out now in the shop!

POP Thru The Parks!

❦ Limited Edition Wristlet Project Bag: Pre-Orders open June 16 ❦

I designed this zipper wristlet pouch to tie in to Indie Untangled’s Knitting Our National Parks project, which will offer four special yarns in 2017, each by a different indie dyer. I will offer an exclusive yarny accessory, available for purchase separately, to coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). Each offering in this collection will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 items is sold out, whichever comes first.

All items in the collection will feature this wonderful fabric, part of Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation collection, on the exterior. The June zipper bags have cheerful Soda Pop Top “Sunshine” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

For openers, here is one of my most popular bag styles, offered to coincide with Backyard Fiberworks eye-poppingly beautiful colorway North Cascades Night. If you’re going to pop for one new project bag this month, I think you’ll love this one!

This is a great one-skein project bag, but it’s also sized just right as a “grab-and-go” wristlet purse! It will hold some cash, your phone, keys, lipgloss, tissues, and a bit more. Pull it out of your tote bag, put on your shades, put the top down on the convertible, and let’s blow this pop stand! At just $22 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag, it’s perfect for summer excursions thru the parks, and everywhere.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 bags, available for pre-order starting June 16, 2017.
• Order period closes no later than midnight EST June 30, 2017
• Orders will ship on or before July 31.
