Sweater Challenge and Dyeing Like Crazy


Hey, just wanted to pop in and let you know that Johnny Vasquez invited me to be on the Daily Show for New Stitch a Day’s 30-Day Sweater Challenge, talking about how to make yourself a gradient sweater. Check it out, and see the step-by-step how-to in the last blog post. Let me just say that I was not aware that the ironing board figured so prominently in the background.😉

Thanks so much to Johnny! I had such a good time recording the segment. And, as part of the 30-Day Sweater Challenge, you can win a Knitcircus Gradient this week! It’s the popular colorway Vampire Boyfriend in Pixie Dust wool/silk fingering weight.

In the Lair, it’s all about getting lots of yarn ready for Vogue Knitting Live Chicago in a couple of weeks. Belle and I will have Sweaters’ Worths of yarn in gradient colors, shawl and sock kits, special Fall/Winter curated collections of kettle dyes, and of course, Matching Socks and Gradients, as many as I can dye up between now and then!


A peek at some of the Fall Curated Colors…


….And some of the Gradients!

Hope you all had a great week , and are enjoying the autumn weather. We made crock pot beef stew yesterday, so it felt satisfyingly like Fall.
