David, the owner and dyer behind Crafter Gamer Geek, has merged longtime passions for old school video gaming via Colecovision and Atari, anime and board games with a love of yarn. The Crafter Gamer Geek shop includes a variety of colorways on a mix of weights and wools, including Merino, BFL, and Polwarth. While David isn’t trying to turn all of us into gamers — in fact, the yarn and fiber above are one of his only non-gaming colorways, inspired by the spotted lanternfly — but he hopes to share his interests with all fellow fiber enthusiasts.
The Woolen Women are living their version of a storybook ending, and so can you with the Woolen Fairytale collection. Colorways come with matching charms and project bags.
Sharon of Garage Dyeworks has collaborated with designer Helaina of Chic and Regal Knits to bring you two shawl design kits. Pictured above is Blissed Out, which uses three skeins of Sharon’s Auto DK.
Jill of Jilly & Kiddles has created kits for the Fairy Correspondence Shawl, the project for the Softyarn Designs annual winter Mystery Knit-a-Long. They include special postcards Jill designed just for the MKAL and the opportunity to connect with other knitters via snail mail.
Paola Albergamo’s latest design, Silky Lavender, is a crescent-shaped shawl worked up in DK-weight yarn. It features a slipped cable pattern in three colors on the border that Paola promises is much easier to work than it looks. It’s 15% off with the code “silky15” until Sunday.
