The website is back up! I am in the process of listing new yarn (swipe for a sample). New yarn postings will go live tomorrow (Friday) at noon eastern time. (The final photo is a gratuitous crocus photo, because we could all use more crocuses in our lives).

As promised in my last post, DK weight #gotlandyarn spun from the very happy sheep of @shepherdscraftfarm!  I love the way it swatches in stockinette stitch, next up: cables. Yarn will be posted for sale on my website soon-ish. .

Trying out my new paper yarn. I haven’t tried knitting with it yet and not even sure what I’m going to use if for! Thinking basket, bag, hat.... Verdict so far...super strong but difficult to work #paper #paperyarn #papercraft #papercrafts #knittedandco #crochet #crochetcircle #crochetersofinstagram #strongyarn
Two new colors of #strawsfarmislandsheep #fingeringweightyarn posted to the shop (link in bio). Swipe to see the second gray (Woodsmoke) and a few of my favorite color combinations. .

Okay Naming Elves, I’m working on a shop update - what should I call this color? Cress? Thyme? New Leaf? Thank you.

Fresh off the drying rack - a whole dye lot of DK weight BFL (spun from the fleece of the lovely flock on Two Sisters farm, Maine) in the colorway Coe’s Naptime. With a few skeins of the Silver Birch colorway I think it would make a great #arborealsweater (second photo).

A bit of swatching with my #arborealsweater yoke kit colors in #uptonyarns #DKweight #bfl. Bottom is the Early Autumn kit with Glacier Bay, top is Late Autumn with Summer Sky. (Swipe left to see the Blues #yokekit with Cream - I still meed tuck the ends. Sigh). Yoke kits are available on my website (☝️) .

A new #arborealsweater yoke kit - Moonrise contains full skeins of Bella Says Goodnight and Slate, and mini skeins of Silver Birch and Lichen. Swipe left for a couple potential main color pairings - Hackmatack and Snapdragon. (All yarn is #uptonyarns #DKweight #bluefacedleicester). .

Inspired by all the Shetland Wool Week photos to finish my #boustabeanie. I think Mary Berry would call my first attempt at a pom pom "informal" but I think it lends a certain whimsy. I still have a few #boustabeaniekit s in stock (website link in bio).

I may have started knitting a #boustabeanie this week. I really love this pattern, and more importantly, the way this yarn is knitting up in this pattern. A kit may be forthcoming.  #uptonyarns #maineyarn #naturalindigo #indiedyer #indigo #strongyarn #smallfarmyarn #singlesourseyarn #knittersofinstagram #shetlandwoolweek #naturaldyer #fibertrekmademedoit
#uptonyarns #engineersarmwarmers were the perfect layering piece for a morning stroll through a Southern Hemisphere early spring day on Thursday morning in Punta Arenas, Chile. Thank you @salty_pants for a great morning (and more great photography). Four flights later I am home packing up for the #woolscoutretreat. @fibertrek I am on my way.

For all you knotters out there we have a brand new yarn for you...it's pure linen and comes in 2mm or 3mm and in 100g, 250g or 500g cones so loads of meterage for your projects. It's mega strong, smooth and will give great knot definition, also fab for weaving. See the new bit of our website for details or just ask. #macrame #macrameyarn #macramecord #weaving #weavingyarn #linenyarn #strongyarn

Second day of crossing the Drake Passage.  I've been tucked away learning how to mend nets (@thenetloft - net mending is so much harder than it looks! Don't judge). Second photo was taken from a porthole in the mess, one level below the porthole in my cabin which has been serving to frame my photos. .

@fibertrek asked me #widn this weekend, and the answer was "hiding from the world". I spent yesterday playing with my #indigo vat to dye up another lot of #uptonyarns #dkweightbfl. I spent this morning giving it a rinse, and now it is drying on the porch. Very happy to be home. So back to you @fibertrek, #widn ?

Lost my game of #yarnchicken (at least with the blue yarn). I really only wanted to knit a couple more rows on my endless swatch of motifs from @mjmucklestone 'a #150scandinavianmotifs .  Luckily I will be home early next week- I think I have a couple more skeins of blue from this dyelot. #stowebag doing support duty. #awayonthelion #knittersofinstagram #naturaldyes #naturalindigo #indigo #indiedyer #localyarn #maineyarn #strongyarn #knityouradventure
The swatch grows! Also, this yarn, #uptonyarns Straw's Farm Island Sheep fingering weight, is now available for sale at uptonyarns.com. (I also dyed up a very dark blue). #maineyarn #naturallydyedyarn #naturalindigo #strongyarn #knittersofinstagram #indiedyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #naturaldyer #islandwool #islandsheep
I've been #swatching with another new #uptonyarns yarn (soon to be posted for sale). Motifs are from @mjmucklestone 's #150scandinavianmotifs.  The dog could be a portrait of Nell (even the color isn't too much of a stretch when I've been in a heavy indigo dyed yarn production phase). I am very pleased with this yarn. #maineyarn #strongyarn #islandyarn #naturalindigo #naturaldyer
Writing out tags for a dyelot of #customdyed #coopworth #ganseyyarn.  I try so hard to keep my writing legible but my natural left handed scrawl always asserts itself.

Saturday's are for #swatching, in this case with a bit of #scottishblackface fingering weight yarn. I keep buying Scottish blackface fleeces and having them spun up as experiments. This yarn is kempy and tough and probably not every one's cup of tea, but I'm in love. It would make an amazing vest... #strongyarn #maineyarn #soulfulstash #uptonyarns #localyarn #farmyarn #naturaldyes
The old bobbins with thread are not only beautiful to see. The strong yarn is perfect to use for tensioning silk fabric on an embroidery frame. #yarn #oldmaterials #strongyarn #vintagematerials #bobbins #garen #naaigaren  #strongquality #kwaliteitsgaren
FITNICE® yarns are made of polyester with completely circular section covered with PVC. Some advantages of this type of spinning are high resistance to abrasion and high dimensional stability of the final product. #architecture #design #sustainablebuildings #strongyarn #polyesteryarn #vinylflooring #wovenvinylflooring
Packaging #uptonyarns #dkweight #bfl for shipment - one of my favorite things to do.  I'm heading back to the boat, so all yarn purchased after feb 1 will have to wait until Mid March for delivery. #naturaldyes #localfleece #localyarn #strongyarn #soulfulstash #maineyarn #naturallydyedyarn #knittersofinstagram #yarnlove

Getting ready to vend at the #slatermillknittingweekend January 21 and 22 - this is just a small part of the mountain of yarn that has taken over my life. Working with #bluefacedliecester from Maine and #naturaldyes from @botanicalcolors #soulfullstash #localyarn #uptonyarns #strongyarn

Messing around with my drop spindle and this lovely little roving samples from @onelupinewool in between scouring and dyeing yarn.  Planning a shawl perhaps? @fibertrek any thoughts?  The white yarn is local #bluefacedleicester left over from the spinning process at the mill during the production of #uptonyarns DK weight BFL and the four rovings from #onelupinefiberarts are Columbia, Karakul, Manx Loaghtan, and Finn.  #strongyarn #breedspecificyarn
