What to stash this week: Now entering fall

Blueberries can be fall themed, at least in the hands of designer Bristol Ivy and Debbie of Murky Depths Dyeworks. For last year’s Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, the two collaborated on a colorway and two designs inspired by a field of lowbush blueberries that had turned a shade of crimson after the summer. Debbie made a carbon copy of the photo that Bristol took with her colorway called The Barrens.

Bristol took two skeins of Debbie’s yarn and transformed them into a hat and mitts set with gorgeous dip stitches dotting a textured background. She named them Sal, In Autumn, as seen on Ravelry, after the Caldecott Medal-winning children’s book Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey.

This was one of my favorite Where We Knit collaborations and I’m excited to make this yarn available in a very limited preorder on Indie Untangled through Friday, September 30.

Three skeins of orange, green and blue multicolored yarn.

Carolyn and Michelle of Olive & Two Ewe Studios are also in a pumpkin spice frame of mind with their Pumpkin Harvest colorway, which features shades of brown, orange, green, and blue.

Janis of Queen City Yarn is skipping ahead to December with her Advent box inspired by cheesy Hallmark Channel movies we know and love. The box contains 20 sock weight mini skeins, one full-sized bulky skein, four mystery gifts from makers and patterns from Ambah O’Brien for the minis and Janis and Christen for the bulky yarn.

What to stash this week: Yarn-centric

The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival takes place a month from now (back in person after two years!), and there’s a new indie pop-up/pre-game show on the scene: Yarncentrick is taking place on Friday, May 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Mt. Airy, Maryland. More than 20 indie dyers, bag makers and creatives, including several Indie Untangled online marketplace and show vendors that you may already be familiar with, will come together outdoors under covered pavilions.

Amy and the crew at Fort Worth, Texas, yarn shop West 7th Wool have their own hand-dyed yarn line and they’re mad for mohair! Their newest yarn base, 7th Street Singles + Mohair, is comprised of 56% extrafine (19.5 micron) Merino and 44% mohair. They’re offering a free keyhole scarf pattern that can be completed with one skein.

Giulia and Stefania of Lanivendole recently dyed up more of their Twisty Chic base, a twistier version of their chic blend of 20% Mohair, 20% Alpaca and 60% Brogna wool. It’s perfect for lighter patterns to wear in the upcoming warm weather in the Northern Hemisphere.
