Easy As 1-2-3

Hi Everyone,
As you may have noticed, we’ve recently dedicated much of our blog post time to those topics (e.g. Size Matters, Color Matters, et al.) we hope will help our fiber community match patterns and yarn in a thoughtful or even courageous manner. Since 70% of yarnies buy the color ways and pattern combinations they see in photos or in shop samples, we wanted to share some of our favorite bundles on Ravelry.

Got stash? We certainly do. Like to bust that stash wide open? As do we! Below are Ravelry bundles with suggested patterns for 1-, 2-, 3- or other multi-skein projects, which will enable you to free up fiber storage space even as you create a project you love. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

One-Skein Wonder projects can be found here.
Dynamic Duo projects can be found here.
Triple Treat projects can be found here.
Knits in Kits projects can be found here.

Did you know local yarn shops and studios like The Fibre Studio receive a small wholesale income from the Ravelry patterns we sell? And at NO ADDITIONAL COST to the customer as well!? #shoplocal #shopsmall  During the purchase process, we provide our pattern customers both with a hard copy and an update to their Ravelry library. Many patterns shown in our Ravelry bundles are sold on our online shop here, and some of the online pattern pages display photos of our shop samples or customer projects completed in our yarn. Simplify your life and buy your yarn and patterns together.

Curiouser and curiouser. Let us know if there is a topic or a question you’d like answered on our blogs or emails. As a tight crafty community, you might just find that others have that same question or are curious about the same topic as you!

Happy stitching, y’all!

All the Shades of Truth

Hi Everyone,

Recently inspired by the beautifully updated photography for the pattern All the Shades of Truth, by designer Laura Aylor, we were encouraged to identify ways in which we could make this lovely wrap our own AND take it to the next level. Hence, The Fibre Studio has created All the Shades of Truth kits in our Walkabout – Fingering, the details of which are listed below.

All the Shades of Truth is a lovely garter stitch wrap inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is knit in one piece modularly by picking up stitches to knit in different directions. The name is derived from a Game of Thrones passage, “…Black and white and grey, all the shades of truth…”

Using a fingering weight yarn, the finished wrap is 18.5 inches x 78 inches with a gauge of 22 stitches and 44 rows equaling 4 inches in garter stitch.

Yarn requirements & kit descriptions are as follows:
NOTES: This pattern also comes with a scarf pattern called Oak Park, which is a smaller color-blocked version of All the Shades of Truth. With the purchase of this kit on our eShop hereThe Fibre Studio will purchase the All the Shades of Truth pattern for you and update you via Ravelry so please remember to include your Ravelry ID in the notes/instructions section at checkout.

If you haven’t already done so, Save the Date for our quickly-approaching June 10 World Wide Knit in Public Day Celebration.

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.

Visit the new shop here.

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!
