Knit Happens: A Knit-centeric Project Bag Collection from artist Cynthia Frenette

  • An aqua drawstring bag with pink yarn balls and the words Knit Happens.

This weekend we are starting off November with a collaboration of three designs from artist Cynthia Frenette! You may remember her from our Cute & Sweary, Pretty Sweary, and Not so Sweary Collections earlier this year! Well, she’s back- and there are no swears! Just good old knitters’ snark!

The Three Designs are:
*Knit Happens
**I knit so I don’t kill people
***I knit therefore I swear

As usual her designs are crisp and bright and the sentiment is on point! Join us for our four-day preorder window, where you can get things the way you want them! Many items offered in our preorders are not made regularly — so this is a great chance to get a limited-edition fabric without a custom order fee!

Orders open Friday, November 1 at 9 a.m. PST and close Monday, November 4 at midnight! Don’t miss out!

Holiday Gift set preorders are open!

  • 8 Nights of Hanukkah Gift Set

One of my favorite things about the fiber industry is the openness to collaboration that I see everywhere. While I love my bags and products, I also want to make sure I help promote my fellow makers and creators as I grow. Welcome to the Holiday gift sets! While each set is guaranteed one of my snag-free bags, it also contains gifts from other makers such as:

Fairy Tale Yarn Co
TurtleMade
One Sock Wonder bags
Me Time Botanicals

and more! We have a 12 Days of Christmas set (to help you either count down to Christmas, or celebrate starting Christmas Day) and a Hanukkah Gift set, with eight gifts to help celebrate the festival of light.

Preorders are up now, and packages will ship in late November/early December. There are only 25 gift sets though, so get your order in soon!

Indie Untangled FOMO? Get your Sweater Bags and DPN Cases!

  • A drawstring bag with women scientist fabric.

KnitSpinQuilt has been quiet recently — I was in England in the winter/spring for graduate school, and then had a very busy summer. But not too busy to bring you something new for sweater-knitting season!

A new bag size — sweater-sized bags — made their debut at the Indie Untangled Trunk Show last weekend.

Did you miss the show? You don’t have to miss these bags!

There are both drawstring bags and box bags in a size designed to hold a worsted weight sweater quantity of yarn. (If you’re knitting a bulky sweater, you’re probably good: if you’re knitting a bulky floor-length sweater-coat, these won’t be big enough.)

Not a sweater knitter? There are new things for shawl, accessory, and sock knitters too! I’ve posted images of the comparative box sizes, and I have notes in my Etsy listings of how much yarn each bag will hold!

Check out the new fabrics KnitSpinQuilt brought to the trunk show — from female rocket scientists to moths and butterflies to origami cats, there’s something for (nearly) everyone. (No foxes yet, but I’m looking, person who asked at the trunk show!)

Please do remember that I donate 15% of the ticket price — not 15% of profits — to RAICES Texas for their ongoing work on immigration justice and reform.
