What to stash this week: Incredible Ibis

December’s Knitting Our National Parks colorway celebrates our feathered friends. Andrea of WoolenWomenFibers was inspired by a photo of a white-faced ibis with incredible purple, crimson, teal and gold feathers, captured by photographer Leslie Scopes Anderson at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Utah.

How to pack clothing and yarn for a cross-country road trip

This summer, my husband and I packed up our trusty 10-year-old Honda Civic and set out on a nearly 10,000-mile journey from New York to the Pacific Northwest and back. A cross-country road trip had been a long-awaited dream of mine, and so I had a lot of time to plan….

The knitter’s bookshelf: A gift list from Indie Untangled

As much as I’ve embraced the digital world, there is definitely still part of me that needs physical books in my life. I know it’s cliché, but flipping through the pages, taking in printed photographs and taking pride in a colorful stack of spines on your bookshelf or nightstand……

Join the Indie Untangled Super Special KAL!

I’ve been taking immense comfort in my knitting these last few weeks, treating myself to afternoons and evenings on the sofa, accompanied by special snacks. It’s the perfect time to share that knitting, so I decided to launch a super special KAL on April 1. It also happens to coincide with the sixth birthday of Indie Untangled (where does the time go?)!…

2019 Year In Review: Indie Untangled KAL

The 2019 Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show seems like it was ages ago, and also like it was just yesterday. For the second time, we organized a massive KAL with eight separate categories, which brought in more than 200 entries! I thought it was appropriate to share the randomly-selected winners as part of a Year In Review post….

2019 Year In Review: IU exclusives

When it comes time to decide on my next project, I sometimes tend to want to save the special yarn, such as the Indie Untangled exclusive colorways that I’ve had dyers create for the Rhinebeck Trunk Show, the Knitting Our National Parks project or the Where We Knit yarn club….

A note from Indie Untangled

On behalf of the team organizing Indie Untangled, I want to address my actions related to compensation of special guests at my events. ⁣
