Knit to Win!

Mairlynd Any Shawl KAL 01

Yes, my friends. You read that correctly. You can win prizes just by knitting (and sharing your work).

During our upcoming June 18 World Wide Knit in Public and Anniversary Event, we are going to have prizes drawn on the half hour between 1-6pm. You CAN stack the deck to increase your chances of winning fabulous prizes like a cake of 50 Shades of Gradient yarn, grab bags, a 40% off voucher for any regular price item currently available in the studio, or a Melanie Berg (@Mairlynd) pattern of your choosing.

“How do I increase my chances of winning?” you ask. Well, folks, you can do the following:

1. For every week you show us your Melanie Berg (@Mairlynd) Knit Any Shawl KAL Work in Progress on The Fibre Studio’s Ravelry KAL discussion board, your name goes into the kitty. Note: Names will only be entered once per week per person.
2. If you wear or bring your Melanie Berg shawl to the event, your name goes into the kitty.
3. If you buy yarn during the event, your name goes into the kitty for each sku you purchase.
4. If you wear a shawl, sweater, scarf, or other item made from The Fibre Studio yarn, your name goes into the kitty…once so don’t bring your entire wardrobe…well, unless you want to do so. Ha!
5. If you are tagged by one of The Fibre Studio employees as a Sample Gallery Model (i.e. we want a picture of YOUR project for our website), your name goes into the kitty. Each attending employee will select only one model.
6. If you win, you must be in attendance at the time of the drawing. Drawing times are: 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm, 4:30pm, and 5:30pm.

Upload those WIPs to our Ravelry page; the payoff is big, Huge, GINORMOUS. Of course, we hope to see you at our event. Did I mention there would be cake–both yarn AND the frosted kind!?

Happy stitching, y’all!

Mairlynd is ending their KAL on June 12, however, we are extending our KAL until Saturday, June 18 in order to make it part of our World Wide Knit in Public and First Birthday event in our new dyeing studio location.

We hope you will join us for our KAL as well as our June 18 event to celebrate with us and to show off your Mairlynd projects? Which Melanie Berg patterns have you purchased? What’s on your needles?

Happy stitching, y’all!

P.S. The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For has a new phone number (980-475-4705) so please update your contacts lists accordingly.


Oh Mairlynd!


We love to give shout-outs to those vendors who provide us some of our greatest pleasures. This month, we are supporting one of our favorite designers, Melanie Berg (aka @Mairlynd).

For several years, The Fibre Studio and our customers have ooh’d and aah’d over Melanie’s patterns.  We’ve saved, loved, and purchased her patterns and forwarded her social media posts, usually with the comment,”Have you seen THIS one?!”

We’ve knitted alone and A-Long, all within our small community.  But, hey world…we are branching out!

In support of the annual Mairlynd Any Shawl KAL, to begin next Monday, May 9, we encourage our readership to put the revelry back in Ravelry and join us in person (at our dyeing studio on Wednesdays, from 10am to 2pm) or online at The Fibre Studio Ravelry KAL or alternately join Mairlynd’s Ravelry KAL.

So what’s in YOUR queue from Melanie Berg? It can be a new project or a work in progress!

Have you Rheinlusted over shawls such as On the Spice Market?  Used your 50 Shades of Gradient to move a Spark of Grey into the light of Sunwalker or Solaris? Are you WIP’d by an Ashburn?  Or Perhaps, Perhaps you finished your one-on-one with The Miller’s Daughter and moved on to A Joker and a Thief?

Heno Joker and Thief

We hope you have and hope you will again. There’s no judgment here. What happens at The Fibre Studio stays in the studio…except when it’s on a KAL!

Please visit our Ravelry or Facebook pages to share your project pictures and happy stitching, y’all!
