New Yarn and Sale!

  • Skeins of bright blue, green and purple yarn.

I am releasing a new yarn just in time for fall – Silky Single! 70% SW Merino/30% Mulberry silk, 415 yards. This yarn is fingering weight, single ply, and super luscious. Dyed in all of my painting-inspired colorways, this yarn has a wonderful sheen and drape, and is great for shawls and accessories. The yardage makes it great for one-skein projects, or pick up a couple and mix things up a bit!

To celebrate my new yarn, I am offering 20% off all Silky Single yarn through October 1st. No code needed.

Clearance Sale!

  • Pink, blue and orange variegated yarn

After a trunk show last weekend, I am working on making room for new bases and colors, but I need to clear a few things out first. Lots of sock yarn and colors I am retiring have been added to the clearance section of my shop, and I have restocked everything else in the normal yarn section. Lots of wonderful variegated colored for everyone, so get it before it’s gone!

Sock yarn on clearance is 25% nylon/75% Superwash merino 2ply. It is a nice base, but I am switching (back) to my 4ply base. The other colors I am retiring are the red — “Early Snow Flowers” — and the green/brown — “Green Rain Tears.”

New Kits and Yarn

  • Four skeins of yarn in purple, blue, pink and orange variegated colorways.

The Knitting Artist has been busy creating new colors and designs. The biggest update is the addition of the semi-speckled “paintwater” and the tonals that, paired with the original handpaints, create wonderful fades and striping projects. Buy all three (or four) and find the perfect color changing project. Or maybe pick up a kit for our newest designs, Dripping Paint Hat and Cowl, which utilize 50 grams of each type of yarn to create wonderful fading accessories. Each kit comes with your choice of yarn in 3 to 50-gram skeins and a copy of the pattern.

Major Shop Update

I spent most of the last few months developing some new colors that I am finally ready to share. These colors are inspired by my already existing yarns, but are dyed in different ways.

“Paintwater” is my term for the speckled effect yarns. These yarns are created by squirting the dye randomly onto the yarn to create a swirled, watered down effect. “Tonal” is a mostly solid color that is not 100% solid, but instead varies in tone of that one color.

And of course my “Original” colors are still available! Pair all three for a faded or striped project and let your inner artist show!

Summer Shop Update

It’s been a while since I have had much to add to my shop, as I have been traveling for various fiber festivals in my area. But now that I am back from the last one of the summer, I have many great things left to share with you all! Looking for unique, colorful yarn? I’ve got it! Looking for fiber-y art to decorate your craft room? I’ve got that too! With yarn inspired by my art and art inspired by my love of knitting, you’re bound to find something you love.

New Year, New Colors

2017 was a great year for me and my indie endeavors. I began dying and selling yarn, having multiple trunk and festival showings in a very short time. And now it’s 2018 and I’m amping things up to make this an even better year.

So why not start the year with two new colorways? “Early Snow Flowers” is a red and brown mix that is sure to be a warm addition to any stash, while “Green Rain Tears” is a nice earthy blend that is perfect for those foresty patterns and designs. Both colors are currently on my Sock and Worsted bases, with more bases coming soon. And as always, you receive a free card with the image of the original painting.

Shop Update and Small Business Saturday

I recently attended my first ever fiber festival — The East Texas Fiber Festival. And while it was a small event, I received fantastic feedback on my yarn and art, enough in fact to keep me motivated to keep it up. I’ve returned from the event with a new vigor for dyeing and creating and am ready to share all of my products with the world!

My shop has been updated with all of my remaining yarns — including a new SW Merino Worsted and a new colorway, Howling Black Bark, all dyed to match my original oil paintings of the same names. I have also added with art prints, notebooks, stitch markers, and my exclusive “knitted shoes.” More items will be added this week, just in time for my Small Business Saturday Sale! Starting Saturday, November 25 and running through midnight Central time on Tuesday, November 27, you can receive 20% off with code SBSSALE AND you will receive a FREE watercolor greeting card of my choice in your package. It’s my way of saying thank you to everyone who has made my business a success up to this point.

Post Trunk Show Updates

While many were exploring Rhinebeck, I had the honor of selling yarn at a local event here in Texas: The Hill Country Yarn Crawl. I’m happy to say that I sold quite a bit, but you’re in luck, because I had some left! I have updated my shop with my remaining inventory of yarn, including a new base! With only two remaining skeins, my sock base is 75% SW Merino, 25% nylon. I will be dying more of these up, but with handpaint it will never be exactly the same.

I also added my remaining 100% SW Merinos, in both the 50g tonals and 100g handpaints.

All of my colorways are dyed to match original oil paintings created by me, and each skein purchased comes with a greeting card with the painting image on the front. At about 450 yds, all of my fingering skeins are perfect for socks, shawls, scarves and more!

So many indie dyers. One email.
