Sweater Challenge and Dyeing Like Crazy

Image

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!

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.
