Celebrate Mom and Much More!

Aside

Hi Everyone! The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For has much to celebrate, and we want you to be a part of the celebration!

Enjoy a 20% Off Mother’s Day Discount on us! Use LUVMOM17 at checkout! This offer is good on our regularly-priced hand-dyed yarns and kits and expires at end of day May 15, 2017.

We’ve “rebooted” our online shop to display even more products and color ways. We think the new eShop is bright and fresh and will enable us to grow along with our fiber community’s needs.

We have identified our next KAL project–Sunshine Coast. This lovely pullover, by designer Heidi Kirrmaier, is quite simple in appearance, but comes with a few little design details that make it special. The A-line body shape is flattering on many body types. It is intended to fit with ½ to 3 inches of ease at the bust.

Knit entirely seamlessly from the top down, it is also quite easy to execute. The side details are formed through basic increases and decreases.

The gauge as written is suitable for a heavy DK or light worsted yarn, however, The Fibre Studio is turning this sweater into a four-season garment by knitting it loosely in a fingering-weight yarn. It is a great project for Merino Bamboo – Fingering, Cotton Bamboo – Fingering, or for those who are sticklers for following patterns, Cotton Bamboo – Worsted. Order your yarn today–take advantage of the sale–and it will be ready to pick up or mail by June 10–our World Wide Knit in Public Day Event where we kick off the KAL.

If you are part of the Joji Locatelli ewe crew, there’s still time to order your Starting Point Wrap MKAL Kit. This MKAL is HUGE, and makers worldwide are participating. Kits are available for pre-order now with options and details listed here.

So many options–so little time. However, it is the PERFECT time to stock up on a few special KAL projects with the 20% off sale. Leave the dust and prevent the rust…on your needles!

Happy stitching, y’all!

Starting Point Wrap MKAL by Joji Locatelli

The Fibre Studio has put together Starting Point Wrap MKAL Kits for Joji Locatelli’s new Starting Point Wrap MKAL. Each kit contains five full-size skeins of Walkabout – Fingering, a 3-ply light fingering yarn with lovely stitch definition. Each skein weighs 4.0 oz | 113 g with approximately 490 yards of 100% SW Merino goodness. Our color kits (as pictured in grouped image) are: Cherokee (top left), Black to the Fuchsia (top center), Meteor (top right), Azure (bottom left), Mountaineer (bottom center), and Darkside of the Rainbow (bottom right).

The kit does not contain the pattern, which must currently be purchased via the designer’s Ravelry page.

Welcome to another rare mystery knit-along adventure with Joji. In the quest to knit this beautiful wrap (stole), we will have fun unveiling each clue while playing with color and texture. I wouldn’t want to make any knitter disappointed with the finished outcome, but the point of a Mystery Knit Along is not knowing what you’ll be making, there’s always that risk. Therefore, here are some facts about the wrap that will help you decide if you will like to embark on this project:

  • The shape is a true rectangle. This wrap can be worn as a wrap, blanket scarf or even as a blanket.
  • Approx. measurements are 26½ x 72” (66 x 180 cm) blocked.
  • It has a graphic look, but it is still classic.
  • You will need yarn in 5 colors and you will use up a lot of your yarn, so you need full skeins.
  • The total approx. yardage is 1700 yards (1555 m). It is a BIG wrap. Please be aware of this.
  • There will be 5 different clues, spread out over 5 weeks.
  • It is good for all levels. There will be TV knitting and more engaged knitting. You will sure have fun.
  • There is no brioche involved. There are no short rows either.
  • There is a little bit of simple lace, about 10% of the total project.
  • There is a lot of garter stitch.
