The latest Indie Untangled project, the Eight Nights of Hanukkah Kit, is gratifying to me for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I get to celebrate my Jewish heritage and share that joyful feeling of opening a gift each night with my fellow yarn lovers.
The second reason I’m excited about it is that after taking a dyeing workshop with my friend Geraldine of the newly-launched yarn line The Wandering Flock, I’ve been inspired to add my own work to the kit. So, in addition to full skeins (or the mini set equivalent) from Blissful Knits, The Fiberists and Pandia’s Jewels, there will be a true IU exclusive in the package!
Preorders are limited and open only until next Friday, November 15.
Bunny Hugs are a clever invention from Michelle of Crafty Flutterby Creations. She created these animal-shaped “end minders” earlier this year to solve the problem of cast on-tails getting tangled. While some knitting friends suggested using bread tags, they didn’t always do the trick and weren’t exactly an attractive fiber accessory. So, after Michelle’s family got a 3D printer for Christmas last year, and she set about building her menagerie, starting with what she named the Suavest Sheep and then bunnies.
Laura of Slipped Stitch Studios is debuting a brand new travel size needle and hook organizer. It will be available in several different fabric options today at 9 a.m. Pacific.
Victoria of Eden Cottage Yarns recently debuted her new Brimham High Twist base. It has the same 85/15 blend of extrafine Superwash Merino and nylon as the Brimham 4ply, but with two strands twisted tightly together.
I was so excited to get to work with Catherine of Gauge Dye Works again on another special self-striping colorway. This is called Field and Pasture and is inspired by a fall colors on the horizon. It’s available on a Merino Worsted with generous yardage for those cozy winter scarves or baby sweaters.
