Dreaming of Paris

I am dreaming of the days that I can throw some clothes in a backpack and taking off for exploration and adventures. While life has kept us at home these days, that feeling of wanderlust has not left…just been put on hold. But while we wait, we can always dream! Paris keeps drifting through my dreams. Inspired by the soft dreamlike colors of this springtime in Paris image, our Dreaming of Paris Snack Pack will help pass the time, until we are able to add more stamps to our passports!!

Un Besito Fiber’s Snack Packs are a dozen 10 gram minis packaged in a clear top bakery box. They are the softest 75% Merino/25% Nylon Superwash Fingering Weight that we have found! And, since we did the work of rolling them into each little treat for you, they are ready to knit or crochet as soon as you get them!

Dreaming of Paris is a wonderful gift for any yarn lover! Perhaps you could team them up with those tickets to Paris, for a truly once in a lifetime gift!

Succulents, Glowing Aliens, and Knitting Cats

  • Mini succulent charms.

My surroundings always inspire my work and during the pandemic I found myself very drawn to plants. They make a space pretty, need love to thrive, and can transport you mentally to a far-off place. My recent love (obsession?) of plants has brought these wee succulent stitch markers to you. I think they are adorable and hope you do, too.

Now for some whimsy. We have glow-in-the-dark aliens and a tiny spaceship and a set of knitting cats. Just in case you find yourself missing in-person knit nights — these little ones will keep you company. Both the knitting cats and the aliens will come with a bonus surprise if you order through Sunday April 18th.

New yarn mini set “Rainbow Stars”

  • Black mini skeins with pops of rainbow color.

They are finally here! My first mini set, “Rainbow Stars,” is now finally available in my shop.

Each set includes seven 20g minis, one for each color of the rainbow.

As always I created these from the raw fleece: I washed, picked, carded, dyed and spun all of the minis myself. They are 100% wool (Romney).

The knit fabric reminds me of countless rainbow-colored stars in a dark night sky, hence the name.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, and as always: enjoy your crafts!

New Minis Have Landed!

  • A rainbow of mini skeins.

When I first began dying yarn and fiber it was the need to play with color that immediately drew me in. That desire to explore new palettes and color combinations continues to drive my design process from beyond the dye pans and onto the needles. That is why mini skeins hold a special place in my heart as they are the perfect way to add a splash of color and whimsey to just about any project.

There are currently a few options available. The Hope & A Future mini skein set was originally inspired by a collaboration with Isabella Tonski of Fiber & Fox and features a bold rainbow of bright jewel toned colors that she picked out herself to design her Hope & A Future crochet shawl (available now!). The Home is Where the Heart is mini skein set features bold speckles on soft muted backgrounds creating the perfect spring fade. This set also includes many of the fan favorites from the Roc Love color collection I started last year as an ode of sorts to my home city of Rochester, NY.
