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.
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!
All yarn and prints are 20% off and free shipping, no code needed, through November 26th. There are color options for everyone, all inspired by my lovely knitted landscape paintings! And if you love the paintings, pick up a print or two to decorate your studio walls. Help me clear out inventory so I can start revealing new things in the coming month and get some holiday shopping done in the process.
Yarns available in three bases – 100% SW Merino fingering, 100% SW Merino worsted and 75/25 SW Merino/Nylon fingering.
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. Take a peek and see for yourself.
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.
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.
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!
After a long absence from the Indie Untangled Marketplace, I am happy to be returning with some amazing news! The Knitting Artist is back and as active as ever, now featuring gorgeous hand-dyed yarn in colorways that match the original paintings that I have created. Each skein is hand-painted with washfast and lightfast dyed in a manner that best represents the original work of art that inspires it. And while each skein was dyed at the same time, in a sense they are all One of a Kind. This lot will never match the next so get these while you can!
The yarn used, 100% wool, is light and airy, with a soft plied twist. While listed as fingering, it is closer to a light fingering weight. But don’t let that fool you! This yarn has a wonderful drape and blocks out amazingly into wonderful shawls and accessories.
Currently I am offering three different colorways in my 100g skeins of hand-painted. I also have three different tonals in 50g skeins to match each of the hand-painted. Limited quantities in each, but working on establishing a more set inventory as time goes on. Use code COLORSET to save $5 when you buy a hand-paint and a tonal together. Included with each purchase of a hand-painted is a greeting card with a printed image of the inspired painting on the front.
October is here. With it comes fall colors, pumpkins, Halloween, and my birthday!
In honor of all of it, I am running a sale at my shop on my fabulous custom shoes. From now until the end of the month I am offering $5 off, with no coupon code needed.
Pick a color and size and I’ll hand dye and hand draw a pair just for you! It’s that simple.
Start your fall off right with a new pair of shoes. 🙂
As an artist, I am obsessed with color and finding new methods to create beautiful things. Therefore, it only seems fitting that my new stitch markers represent the rainbow of colors that I have come to love, recreated with beautiful, handmade polymer beads.
Each set comes with six markers, each of which is unique in its own way thanks to the swirling method I use to create the beads. The clay beads are accented by the use of my tradition beads as accents, allowing for an elegant finish. Perfect for size 8 needles and lower, these are snag free dangling marker that will show off anyone’s knitting!
