What to stash this week: Scary beautiful yarn

Sirena of The Backcountry Knitter was inspired by a photo of a Portuguese man o’ war taken at the Gulf Islands National Seashore, in the “coastal backcountry” of Mississippi, for her installment of the Knitting Our National Parks Series, which is going into its sixth year! There are two “sting-free” colorways — the specked Hydrozoa and the semisolid Beach Shadow — as part of this collection and they are dyed on two bases,…

Get in on the Indie Untangled summer swap!

Hands down, one of the best things about Ravelry is meeting some talented, smart and interesting people. I’ve learned that knitters are also extremely generous, whether they’re slipping some of their leftover yarn in the mail for free so you can finish that shawl or sweater, or sending delicious treats to their swap partners….

What to stash this week if you’re not at ‘Unwind’

If you’re a knitter and live in the UK, you’re probably not planning to do much online shopping this weekend. I would certainly love to be knitting by the Brighton Pier, taking a shawl class with Veera Välimäki and meeting all the lovely Indie Untangled artisans who will be selling their wares,…

Thanks to all of you who participated in the Lakes Yarn and Fiber giveaway. The random number generator has spoken, and the winner of cabinfour’s He’e Nalu pattern and two skeins of Single Fingering is Sue:

It’s so hard to pick just 3!…

Untangling: Lakes Yarn and Fiber

Just like the semisolid skeins she dyes in the kitchen of her 100-year-old cottage in the mountains of northern Idaho, Ami Volz of Lakes Yarn and Fiber has many interesting layers. Growing up in Coeur d’Alene, a small town on the north shore of Coeur d’Alene Lake,…

Astral Bath giveaway winners

No, that’s not a typo. I did mean to write winners with an S.

Cass is the first winner of the Astral Bath Yarns giveaway. She had a little trouble picking one movie:

I do love Indiana Jones and his whip 😉 but I’ll have to say Star Wars – Return of the Jedi
Love the ewoks,…

What to stash this week: Geeky goodness

Louise, AKA The Cryptozoologist has taken her yarn to a new “level.” Her shop has been updated to include 100% British BFL Aran-weight skeins, with some more fun video game-inspired colorways. Pictured is a colorway representing Team Inferno from Robot Unicorn Attack II. There’s also Carbuncle,…

Untangling: Astral Bath Yarns

As an artist, Ridgely Schantz has long brought colors to life on paper and canvas. A few years ago, she added wool to the list, unleashing such striking and complex colorways as Famous Blue Raincoat and Scheherazade on the knitting world. (Seriously. The names of her colors — inspired by mythology,…

What to stash this week: Summer knitting

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely in a Knit All the Sweaters mood this week (it may have something to do with the Waterlily currently sitting on my blocking board!!). I’m in the middle of compiling a list of summer sweater patterns for an upcoming blog post and Hanna Maciejewska’s Endearment will definitely be on that list….

Indie dyer love

I was already a fan of the A Playful Day podcast and blog when Kate launched the Love Our Indies campaign last month. The first post from Victoria of Eden Cottage Yarns — responding to a collaboration between a UK women’s group and an arts and crafts superstore chain that produced a special line of mostly acrylic yarns in the land of BFL,…

Inside the Astral Bath Yarns open house

I’ve been trying to find the best words to describe the open house that Ridgely, the artist behind Astral Bath Yarns, hosted this past Saturday in her Portland, Maine, studio. I think it could most accurately be described as one of her frenzied Etsy updates come to life,…

I’m pretty excited to introduce you to the newest Indie Untangled vendor, which is none other than… Indie Untangled!

If you were around when this site launched in April, then you might have participated in the first giveaway of the special bags that Vicki of That Clever Clementine sewed up with Indie Untangled yarn ball logo fabric….

What to stash this week: Bag some bags (and yarn, and fiber)

I am SO excited for Vicki of That Clever Clementine: this week, she reached her 500-sale milestone on Etsy! What’s even better is that she’s offering 15% off all orders of $20 or more through June 10 with the code IndieUntangledJune….

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a giveaway going on here on Indie Untangled. While you’re waiting to see if you’ll be one of four lucky winners, take a look at some of the other things on offer from our talented artisans. It might not be free,…

Berry Colorful Yarnings giveaway ‘tour’

I hope you all had a relaxing holiday weekend and have been able to get back into the daily grind easily (those of you not in the U.S. can feel lucky to have had a head start on work this week). While having a lovely time with family and friends outside of the city — and when I wasn’t eating ice cream or spinach dip — I made a ton of progress on my Waterlily….

What to stash: Yarn ‘your way’

I find it all too perfect that Burger King has decided to redo its iconic “Have it Your Way” logo and that Don and Peggy slow danced to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” on last Sunday’s Mad Men (how beautiful was that scene?!)….
