Revelations of a Delusional Knitter

| Sunday, October 19, 2014
 
 
Hello Readers!!  I am so happy to be sharing with you a new dyer,

I'm pleased to introduce you to Angela.
 
 
 
"I’ve been knitting and spinning for years, in 2011 after taking a class on dyeing, I started dyeing yarn and opened an Etsy shop. My operation is VERY small and I usually dye up 2-4 skeins at a time and have no real schedule (life often gets in the way).
 
Typically I dye just for fun, a lot of my colorways are OOAK (one of a kind) because I am just playing with dye and not concerned about keeping track or recording recipes. I also dye fiber and sometimes have small quantities of other yarn bases in the shop. Essentially if you like what you see, you should grab it while you can :o)
 
Self-striping colorways are reproducible and typically seasonal. I love to dye up 3 stripe colorways that reflect the current season or holiday. I just finished dyeing up Halloween colorways and will be working on Christmas / Winter soon!
 
I am a 911 dispatcher full time, live with my hubby and three cats and have a small room in my house dedicated to my obsession with fiber and yarn. And I have started designing knitting patterns, I’m currently working on an infinity cowl. I also host a video knitting podcast."
 
Now that you have a good idea about out fantastic host of this weeks review, lets get to the yarn goodness.
 
 

Illusion

Fingering / 4 ply
400 yards/100 grams
 US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm
75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon.
 
The BOO colorway.
 
 



 
Who does not love a great self striping sock yarn.  So many options now for patterns or for just a good old Vanilla Sock.  This is a total work horse yarn that can be worn and thrown in the wash.  These are some of my favorite kinds of yarns for that very reason, no special care needed. 
 
Her color choices seem so fitting for the colorway name.  The pairing of the lavender, lime and dark grey is just perfect.
 
Angela also has several other bases and yarn weights that she carries in her Etsy Shop, you should really take a look and see what you can find.

Everything NEW @ Knitters Pride

| Sunday, October 5, 2014
 
Hello Readers!!! 
This week is really an exciting one.  I have the opportunity to share with you some of the very newest items you can get from Knitters Pride.  Be ready to make a list for Santa after you see all the amazing items I have to show you today.
 
 

Bags & Handles

Some of the most unique non-leather bags are here to stash all your knitting goods in.  These bags will fit more than just knitting; a water bottle, cellphone, iPad...you name it, it has a pocket for it.  The collections come in three color pallets and have a range of bag types and needle/notion cases to coordinate.
 
 
 
 
 

Knit Blockers

This is one of those items that I wish I could say, "I thought of that."  Unfortunately...I did not.  What a great concept for blocking.  It is a comb like object that has a series of pins all aligned in a row for blocking straight edges.  They all come packaged in a small compact box, perfect for any knitter who will be doing any kind of blocking.
 
 
 
 

Trendz

Every one loves an interchangeable needle set!  How about a set of acrylic needle tips that are all uniquely colored according to size.  What a fun way to introduce a friend to knitting.  Same great joins in the cables/needles that we have come to know and love from Knitters Pride Needles. 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Karbonz

I would say that most of 'My Readers' are well aware of Karbonz needles by now.  However did you know that they just launched a new interchangeable set that is specific to 16' needles??!!  The kit comes with two 16' cables and caps and a ranging size of Karbonz needles.  These needles are unique in that the tips are only 4' long.  This makes the perfect 16' needle for hat knitting or sleeves, what ever you fancy. 
 
 
 
So many new and exciting things to put on your wish list this holiday season.  I hope that you found something new to you today that you want to take a second look at. 
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I would like to thank Knitters Pride for always having great customer service and the latest advancements in the world of fiber arts.
