Introducing Whole Knit ‘n Caboodle

Hello Indie Untangled Fiber Gurus! I’m Terri from Whole Knit ‘n Caboodle Yarns from Albany, N.Y. (it’s about an hour north of Rhinebeck). I’m from a family of crafters: sewing, painting, woodworking — anything craft related I’ve done it.

After getting back into knitting about 15 years ago and learning so many new techniques from my sister — some may know her as Mary, owner of the LYS Perfect Blend Yarn and Tea in Saugerties, N.Y. — I started dyeing yarn a few years ago and the world hasn’t been the same for me since. My yarn is mostly available through yarn shops and I do a few shows throughout the area. As of right now I have about 10 bases of yarn that I dye, from alpaca to Merino with bamboo.

There is no question that fiber people are the best inspiration to other fiber artists. I have been having the best time collaborating with people from custom colors for Fades to online yarn boxes. The fiber world is filled with fascinating people with so much inspiration. I hope I can inspire some of you to create some wonderful projects too!

Won’t you be my neighbor?

We are so excited to announce the next three Bag of the Months are inspired by the Inspired! Did you ever think how lucky most of us were to grow up with such creative, inspirational leaders as Fred Rogers, LeVar Burton, and Bob Ross… just to name a few?!

I am so very excited to announce that the next three Bag of the Months will be inspired by these greats. I have partnered up with some of my favorite indie yarn dyers to complement each bag, and we have even brought back the “Make it a Club” listing for a very special surprise to be included for those that wish to participate.

Mr. Rogers bags and supplies will be paired up with Anzula luxury fibers!

I hope these bags and supplies will add some much needed positivity to your life, and that the quotes we pick will delight you and remind you of our ultimate purposes in this life: to learn how to love ourselves, love others, and create a beautiful legacy that will survive long past our mortal lives. Each one of us holds such a unique piece of this life puzzle, never forget that!
