Who could resist a trip to the Mother Ship #irregularchoice while in London?! I tried on the new limited edition heels but came away with a more simple pair (show ya later)
I found the flats version of Summer of Love which was one of my most popular colours from this year’s #irregularchoiceyarn line... Reckon I should do a OOAK stocking of this once a year or so?
Thank you for your orders. Your orders keep us in business! We appreciate our whole sale accounts and our retail buyers. Business is so tricky as it works through years of highs and years of lows. We rely on our customer base and clients to keep creating. Thankyou 🧡
500 followers 😱 two months ago I’d never have believed how well my little business would be doing in such a short space of time! If I get to 1000 I’ll do a giveaway - thanks so much for all the love, it really means a lot to me 💕
The yarn I dyed to match my logo just happens to contain the hardest colour to photograph accurately 🤦 but they're my favourite colours and will be in the shop tomorrow night. There are five skeins on five different bases 💙💜
Good morning!! The third installment of the Winnie The Pooh inspired subscription service has shipped. I’d like to thank my three month subscribers for signing up! I hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve received thus far! Six and nine month subscribers, I look forward to the characters that are coming down the pipeline and I hope you do to!! I’m finishing up everything in my queue this week and then I’ll be shutting the studio down for a bit. We’ve encountered some HVAC and structural issues stemming from the amount of moisture I’ve been kicking out while dyeing and need to address these problems immediately. Repairs have to be made and new equipment needs to be purchased if I’m going to continue dyeing and keep my home in good shape.
I promise I’m working as hard as I can! My mom didn’t raise a quitter. ❤️ If you’d like to help me, I’ve set up a gofundme page to try and raise the funds to get everything in order as quickly as possible. I’ll post the link below.
I’d like to thank everyone who has donated so far, shared my link and offered words of encouragement! Your support has been a bright spot in all of the madness.

There are lots of new things in store for #cameoyarns this Autumn and the coming year - thus a new planner was warranted! From new festivals, to new yarn clubs, and even, gasp, a podcast. We’re in a ‘go big or go home’ mood! (But being thoughtful of potential burnout.) We’re currently taking suggestions for names for the podcast. If your suggestion is chosen there may just be a surprise in it for you! 😉 Also, shoutout to @anniedotcreative for my awesome pin! 💕
The most amazing thing happened Saturday! A customer came in with one of my samples all worked up in my yarn! #twinning
The pattern is the Cabernet Infinity Scarf and I tell everyone it is my knitting JEWELRY. This is on Treat Yo Self, a DK weight 50% merino, 50% silk and just digs in colorway Rose Gold.
I may have geeked out, just a little.
I'm working on plans for my upcoming designs. It surprises most, but I'm not a big stasher. I buy with plans in mind and actually have anxiety when my stash gets bigger than I think I can knit. All of this yarn babies have design plans in the near future. .
How do you stash?
These two are such an unexpected match! I mean, sure, all natural dyes carry the same undertone and go well together, but sometimes two skeins just look like they belong together, ya know? Or am I weird for playing match-maker with my yarns? 😂
🏷 Pictured is “Grim” and “Fairy Cake” on Cloudland DK. Both are currently available in the shop!
Step right up! Step right up! Some exclusive hand dyed and hand printed indigo bags are available online from @unionfibre ☄️💥🔥 #Repost @unionfibre
There are only a few of these stunning indigo dyed @hellorosemarlow bags left in the online shop. I love these bags. Such a beautiful way to store a project in between rows 💙
I saw a pattern for the perfect knitted wrap. Then I went on a search for the perfect yarn to go with the perfect pattern and here they are. A little splurge for myself. I bought these back in September, dyed to order, but well worth the wait. This colorway is titled Mr. Tambourine Man. I don’t know what her inspiration was for the name but it sure fits in my mind. The creative name and the yellows and grays just sucked me in. I’m not a proficient knitter, but I have the will to be so these will be thrown (lovingly) on my needles. I splurged for myself to have a #slowknit#winterknitting project. #wishmeluck I’ll need it with the pattern that I chose (but well worth the trial and concentration.) #winterknitting @sixandsevenfiber #mrtambourineman#playasongforme I hope to cast a knitting spell for me #luxuryyarn#cashmere#dyedtoorder#indiedyed and the tea bag didn’t hurt either #beautifulyarn packaged lovingly
@tinsmithswife made this beautiful Garnet Eyelet shawl with The Sky Is Falling (a Henny Penny episode reference!). This project took a little over one skein of our DK Tweed base, which knits up quickly and makes for a super soft fabric! Susan even added a tasteful beaded castoff. Beautiful work!! Check out the shop for this color and more! Pattern is on Ravelry by @knitwitmee.
So I have been working through the "Magic of Tidying Up" by @mariekondo . If you are unfamiliar with this tidying method, then here's the gist. First, you pile up all the things you have from one category (clothes, or books, or papers, etc). Then, you pick up one item at a time from the pile, until you have touched everything in the pile. Each time you hold an item, you ask, "Does this spark joy?" 😃 If it doesn't, then you get rid of it. 🗑 If it does, you keep it. 👍 Let me say, this worked like GANGBUSTERS when I went through all the clothes in my house. We got rid of 75% of the clothing in our house in about 4 days. My clothes. Husband's clothes. Kids' clothes. Hardly anything sparked joy. I sent carloads of clothing to Goodwill. Yay, me! 🎉 Then, I got ambitious and decided I would do the same thing with my yarn stash. It took me about 10 minutes to realize the #konmari method was NOT going to work for my yarn. When I picked up a skein and I asked myself, "Does this spark joy?" the answer was always, "YES, YES, IT DOES!" ⚡️❤️ Luckily, I cleaned out so much of my closet, that there was lots of room for yarn. Tidying success! 🙌 .
That gorgeous yarn you are looking at...That's @noxyarnco in "Madame Puddifoot" (left) & "Reverie" (right). In case you were wondering...It does bring me joy. 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
How do you tidy? Not your yarn, of course, I assume that we all hoard yarn, but other stuff.
Oh Attic Treasures how I've missed you 🧡
This was one of the very first colorways that ever made it to the shop and I still love her and her antique vibes.
This was the first time dying her up in my new studio so I have a couple very minor tweaks to make before I list it under the colorways tab, but there's still a couple of this batch left from last night's update 😉
