Stephanie Ruff of California sells hand dyed fiber and yarn, also handknit baby items.
She sent me a photo of a booth where she was selling hand knits from our yarn. Her knitting is so well done, I asked for a photo of a single sweater to show you.
You can contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the baby items she knits and her hand dyed yarn.
|I am so excited over the handmade items we have for gifts
this year. This is one of the Handmade Wood Shawl
Pins, a great gift idea for knitters, crocheters, weavers or anyone
who wears shawls or scarves. Our friend who made the shawl pins also made
fantastic soap dishes for our handmade felted soaps.
Leslee Perez of Texas shared this photo of the box she knit then felted
with our yarn.
The photo arrived at a perfect time as a customer was asking about using our yarn for a knit the felt purse. I always explain it takes our yarn much longer to felt in the washing machine because of the fine grade of wool; but Leslee's picture said it much better
They call her Bell... and she would be the Belle of the Ball wearing
her new bolero shrug.
Looks like Bell is rather pleased at the knitting her grandmother Karen Sanchez did just for her. It is knit in Marr Haven Lilac Heather from a pattern in the One Skein Wonder book.
See another shrug knit by Karen's co-knitters, Maria.
Christine Kern of hippy pippy
shares her new colorway "king kandy".
It is dyed on our Light Grey. She has this colorway and more available now on her website.
Amy Foret of Cajun Fiber Company used her colorway on 3 of our yarns
to show how the different colors take the dye.
On the left is Natural, middle is Light Grey and right is Light Heather.
You can see more of Amy's hand dyed yarns, knits and hand spun yarn on her website.
Kristi Pyatt of Tree Frog
Knits hand dyed 3 of our colors at the same time to see how the same
dye would show on the different colors.
. Shown on the left is our Medium Grey, Light Heather (middle skein) and Light Grey.
MaryAnn Inman of Michigan has made Locker Hooking
her favorite pastime lately. She did a beautiful rug for a gift, it is
a solid black with two hearts and a cross in the center. A perfect example
of how striking a single color can be.
I was so impressed by the evenness of her stitches that I had to put the close-up picture here. You can see the full rug and design on Marr-haven blog
MaryAnn will do custom locker hooking. If you are interested, email me and I will give MaryAnn your email to contact you.
Emily Johnston of Michigan designed and knit this great hoodie in Burgundy
Heather for her niece. I love the cable detail which is on the sleeves
and shoulders as well as the front.
Emily said: "This was the first time I combined patterns to get what I wanted and I'm very happy with the results. Ann Budd's sweater pattern book came to the rescue to give me a starting foundation."
Thank you Emily for the inspiration to branch out with our knitting ideas.
