New Fun-ctional Notion: Suavest Sheep

  • A mini white sheep wrapped in teal yarn.

After months of development, testing and trying to keep these cuties under wraps, it’s finally time for the big reveal:

Meet the Suavest Sheep!

These happy little notions will tidy your cast-on end, hold yarn joined in the middle of your project, act as a handy color swatch to carry with you, or make for an adorable display of your favorite yarns.

These cuties are 3D printed in my home using polylactic acid, which is made from plant-based renewable resources.

What do you think? Will you be adding a few to your flock?

These sheep will be making their event debut in my booth at Maryland Sheep and Wool! Find Crafty Flutterby Creations in barn 3. Hope to see you there!

The Indie Project with Hue Loco

  • A collection of colorful mushrooms.

This year I am doing one of the most exciting yarn clubs out there!

One of my favorite parts of dyeing yarn is we all do it differently and we each have our own style. It’s often talked about that even if two dyers had the same set of dyes, their skeins of yarn would still look different because we are all unique.

To show there is a place for us all, each month I am collaborating with a different indie dyer to create one of kind sets based on a common inspiration. The cool part, we aren’t discussing anything else about our colorways once the inspiration is chosen, we just go and do our thing. What comes from this is two unique, yet coordinating yarn to use for two-color shawls, as part of a fade or even colorwork possibilities.

So far this year I have had the pleasure to work with Machete Shoppe, The Flying Kettle and Woolberry Fiber Co.

Some months will have special items included like stitch markers (last month was Blue Dog Workshop), other goodies, or even patterns designed specially for that month!

The month of April is a very exciting month indeed! I have paired up with Nicole from HueLoco to create a beautiful set that will feature a summer top designed by Olga from Handmade Closet. Preorders will go live in my shop on April 1 for only one week. You won’t want to miss out on this month, trust me!

I’m looking at this as a little bit of an experiment and I also hope for the club to be in the true spirit of what this community is: connections, sharing and love.

Stealthy Sloth is Stealthy

A bag with a blue sloth pattern.

If you attended Knitters’ Day Out last fall, you saw our limited collaboration with Fiberarrium that included an awesome sloth bag and coordinating dyed sock yarn. We loved those sloths! While we weren’t able to acquire any more of that fabric (apparently it’s crazy popular!) we WERE able to get this awesome print! I love how calm and almost floral this fabric looks, then all of a sudden you realize there is a sloth peeking out from one of the trees!

This Stealthy Sloth bag is the perfect combination of “grown-up” and fun, with the classic grey/pink/teal/white combination, and teeny little sloths scattered throughout. I don’t expect these guys to hang around for long though, so grab one today!

Knitters’ Mini Sketchbooks

  • A set of knitting notebooks in front of gray yarn.

Introducing knitters’ mini sketchbooks from adKnits! When you’ve got your project with you on the go, a little sketchbook is an absolute must! Great for jotting down notes or sketching out a quick idea, these pint-size booklets are perfect to tuck into your project bag, purse or pack.

They’re small, but they pack a punch! The inside cover of each sketchbook includes a knitting reference chart and (my favorite part) a five-inch ruler. Made from recycled paper with a sturdy kraft cover, these little sketchbooks are an essential for any knitter!

So many indie dyers. One email.
