Sample/Test Knitters Needed!

Wow have I been busy! Between all of the dying, designing socks and trying to build an e-commerce site I am out of time!
I am in need of samples for my shops and for trade shows.
What I am needing is for people to take my yarn and my pattern and knit it for a sample and return it to me. In return you will receive a gift certificate to my shop for anything you choose!
Projects will be sent out on a first come, first serve basis. Compensation will be based on the intensity and time of the project.
I am needing pairs of socks for somethings but if you prefer to only knit one, I need that too.
I am needing these as quickly as possible, so if you have a lot you may need to consider that before applying.
To apply please send an e-mail to with your name, mailing address, the type of project you would like, how quickly you could complete it, and when you could start.
I will send you your supplies (minus the needles) and will reimburse you for your shipping cost back to me. You will need to send the project, leftover yarn and the pattern with your notes back to me.
Please forward this e-mail to all your knitter friends!
Also, check out the etsy shop. tons of stuff going on. I am closing out a lot of old yarns as I am carrying new base yarns and will not be carrying them anymore. I am now carrying 100% Superwash Merino, a Bamboo/Merino/Nylon blend and a Merino/Tencel blend. There are also new BFL Rovings being listed and a sale on stitch markers!
Happy Knitting!

Top Ten Reasons to Buy Yarn...

Top ten reasons to buy yarn:
  1. Doesn’t have to be watered, fed, repotted or pruned.
  2. Doesn’t have a shelf date.
  3. Doesn’t need to be walked, groomed or fed. And it doesn’t shed. Usually.
  4. Doesn’t need a sitter when you go out. Or someone to watch it while you’re on vacation.
  5. Doesn’t need its litter box changed.
  6. Doesn’t raise your blood pressure. Or your bad cholesterol.
  7. Never talks back or asks to use the car and then returns it with the tank on empty or borrows your handpainted yarn socks and washes them in the machine on hot.
  8. Makes a great interior design color splash even if you never use it.
  9. Never changes the channel to a sports program.
  10. And number one: isn’t fattening.

What's in the works?

Several HUGE boxes of yarn just arrived ready to be dyed! I have already gotten started. I have 10 hanks in a new colorway called September. This yarn will be released Sept 1st through the 30th. It will be located in Greenberry House in Meadows of Dan, NC and my online shop (to open in 2 weeks) only 10 will be painted.

I also got a sample of a Merino, Silk and Silver Superwash yarn for socks. I am sure there will be more to be dyed and offered in my stores.

Also coming soon are handmade knitting needles and spindles! Stay tuned!

The splurge...

So I went to Knit Picky in W-S, NC (bad me) and this is what I returned with! ;-)

The new sock blockers from Fiber Trends...
