A blog about my work in fiber arts with the occasional picture of cats.

I also reblog fiber craft tutorials and share links to other work that I enjoy.

Who Knit You? is a small business based in St. John's, Newfoundland that offers a variety of hand dyed, handspun yarns and modern knitwear and accessories.

 

The grey and yellow yarn I posted a while ago and a sparkly one I haven’t yet posted. 

Trying my hand at puni style rolags again. These came out really well. Can’t wait to spin these up.

Michaels had a sale on Lion Brand yarns so I picked some up to dye. Maybe I will have some millspun handdyed yarn for sale soon. We’ll see!

Who needs chocolates and flowers when you can have new dyes! Michael picked these up for me on his way home from work and I couldn’t be more delighted!

It’s been a busy summer!

Well, well, well. It happened again! Months with no posts, but that doesn’t mean that there were months without creating.

My last post was about my first experiment with solar dyeing and I have done a lot of experimenting with it since.

I also participated in the Tour De Fleece, went on my first trip to mainland Canada and visited Toronto, did a lot of knitting (and sold a lot of knitting), spent time with my family, drank a lot of beer, and overall had a great summer! I also cut and dyed my hair fuchsia, which is unusual for me - at least at this point in my life!

I’m just about to load up the que with lots of photos and perhaps I will be able to keep up to date with my blogging.

I’m considering taking a break from markets, but I haven’t decided yet. I would like to spend some time working on special projects, practising new techniques, and developing new products. Sometimes I find that production and the stress associated with it can stifle my creativity, so perhaps it will be good for me to focus on other things for a while. Should I decide to take a break from local markets I will be updating my Etsy shop with all my products, including my knitwear and other bits and bobs. That’s pretty exciting!

Thanks again for sticking with me over the summer! I have missed all my wooly friends :)
