Pumpkin Spice Inspired Sock Kit

C.C. Almon of Java Purl Designs and I have once again combined our powers to bring you another wonderful kit. This kit is inspired by C.C.’s I Love You More Than Pumpkin Spice sock pattern. There is nothing better than combining two things you love — Pumpkin Spice and wool. The colors included in this sock kit are an updated version of my Pumpkin Spice colorway from last year and a mini skein of Dark Roast (which has a dark brown purple hue to it). I have two kits available, one with the pattern and without. All kits will include a Snug sock kit and Pumpkin Spice-inspired goodies.

Please keep in mind when ordering this product that this is a stock photo and there are no dye lots. This means that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from skein to skein, from kit to kit, and from what is depicted in the photos. Preorders for these kit are available starting today and will close on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. EDT. I can only make a select amount of kits based on the supplies I have on hand. All kits will ship in late October or early November 2018.

Shimmer & Whimsey KAL/CAL

Asylum Fibers is hosting a KAL/CAL in collaboration with Kristy Glass of Kristy Glass Knits and Michele Costa of Stitch and Hustle.

Kristy is best known for her “Tell me about your Rhinebeck Sweater” video, so it’s especially fitting that this knit and crochet along will culminate in a fun group photo at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. If you can’t make it but would like to be included in Kristy’s video, you can send her a photo.

Michele designed two shawl patterns for this KAL/CAL. Unicorn Kounty is a knit pattern that’s simple enough for beginners, but allows a lot of room for interpretation for adventurous knitters. Unicorn County is the crocheted version and looks very similar. It’s extra special that both knitters and crocheters can participate in this together, and I’ve already seen quite a few double dippers! Both patterns are available on Ravelry.

The original kit for what I’ve been calling the “Unicorn Along” has colors curated by Kristy and adorable unicorn themed stitch markers as well as a limited edition project bag. There are just a few of these kits left from Stitch and Hustle.

For those looking to break the mold, I’ve put together some other color combos, using the same sparkle DK base as the original kit, and they will be available at 7 p.m. EST, Friday, August 24th.

If you can join us, share your progress using #kgkunicornalong!

P.S.: I can’t wait to see you at the Indie Untangled Trunk Show! Look forward to a very special pattern and kit collaboration with Lavendar Lune Yarn Co. and Mina Philipp, aka Knitting Expat on Youtube. There will be mohair involved!

Explore over 100 indie yarn and fiber shops

With the changes in the marketplace, plenty of new indie shops have been opening on FiberCrafty. This means lots of gorgeous new listings and product options! Scroll through and just browse or use our filters to search for breed specific yarn or fiber, a yarn weight for that project you have been eyeing or if you just want something in purple.

Posted pictures correspond to the shops listed below!

Pen & Hook is one of our newer shops and has a really unique product line of hand dyed sari silk. It’s available in 12 colors and varying lengths. Just imagine all the unique ways this could be used from adding textured stripes, to a gorgeous statement cowl to wrapping gifts or creating jewelry. Lisa also has beautifully hand-dyed silk yarn listings.

The Spun Bunny shop has a variety of yarn in different fibers (yak, silk, Cashmere and more!) and weights (from lace to worsted), as well as different types of spinning fiber that range in preparations like braids, rolags, and silk brick. Marissa’s love of color really shows!

One of my favorite things about the APLCrafts Handmade shop is that many of the yarns can be used beautifully together. Alicia also offers great suggestions for coordinating yarns in each listing. She doesn’t always repeat her colorways so if you see something you like, don’t wait around.

Sharon mostly has yarn but also offers some fiber in her CabinWool shop as well. She uses a range of yarn bases including corriedale and has some really beautiful variegated options. Check out her beautiful “Kissin Cousins” sets – two coordinating skeins that can be purchased individually as well.

LizaDeeOriginals is another newer shop and each time I see one of her listings for yarn or fiber, it takes my breath away! Bobbie’s dye technique is unique and she also has some true, gradual color gradients.

Jacqui of Lowlander Yarn Studio has just started adding listings to her shop and she offers a luxurious yarn base that is perfect for shawls! It is a blend of BFL, silk and cashmere available in multiple tonal colors, inspired by nature.

This is just a sampling of the shops and products on FiberCrafty! Do you follow us on Instagram? We help you stay in the loop with our newest listings. If you want to hear about sales and coupon codes, let us know!

Semiramis Shawl Kits with Yarn Over New York and Gannet Designs

KnitSpinQuilt is exited to announce the first of several collaborations with yarn dyers!

This very first kit is a collaboration with Yarn Over New York and Gannet Designs. Customize it and make it exactly what you want: you get a medium drawstring project bag, one or two skeins of fingering-weight yarn, a lace shawl pattern, and a stitch marker.

The project bag — a medium drawstring project bag sewn by Alisa of KnitSpinQuilt — is made from a fabric whose pattern was designed by Naomi of Gannet Designs. The lovely, lovely yarn is dyed by Jessie of Yarn Over New York.

You get to customize the kit in several ways. We’re offering it in three different colors (green, blue, and purple) and two different yarns: Times Square Sock (Merino/nylon) or Astoria (alpaca/Merino). Choose your color, choose your yarn base. Finally, choose whether you want one skein of yarn, or two skeins of yarn.

The kit comes with a pattern for a brand new shawl: the Semiramis Semicircular Shawl, designed by Alisa of KnitSpinQuilt using Gannet Designs lace patterns. You can make a shawlette with one skein of yarn, or a large shawl with two skeins. You’ll also get a custom matching stitch marker as a little bonus.

You can pre-order the kit at Yarn Over New York’s new website. Orders are capped at 30 kits, so hurry over!

You’ll receive a Ravelry download code for the pattern as part of your purchase. Don’t have Ravelry? We’ll print it and mail a physical copy of the pattern to you with the yarn — just make a note in your order.

So many indie dyers. One email.
