Smart-Ass Knitters: June 2013

The Yarn:

Filament o’ Squid, a new Merino/Seacell blend in Squalor Amongst the Ankles

DSC_0003

I was thinking about my childhood summer memories.  Playing hide and seek in sun-bleached fields of long grass.

Ron, on the other hand:

Some body parts are pretty. Some body parts are functional.
And then, there’s the Ankle.
The Ankle: The Zircon of the Gem World.
The Ankle: The French Fry of International Cuisine.
The Ankle: The Frisbee Golf of Sports.
Isn’t it about time the Ankle was given its due?
Squalor Amongst The Ankles. Feel the love!

The Designers:

This year the Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination 1 Skein Club is offering 2 patterns with every Club package.

I love all the details in these socks.  The leaves and vines climbing up the leg. The way the design flows down onto the foot. And this sole detail:

And these are charted for 4 sizes!

Lonicera by Sarah Wilson/The Sexy Knitter

Sarah took on the challenge of making this cowl adaptable to all seasons and climates and really stretched the possibilities of this yarn. There are 4 sizes in total, some using the yarn single stranded and some double stranded, so depending on your wardrobe needs, you can make this everything from a quick winter knit to a light summer shoulder wrap.

Both these patterns will be available for sale directly from the designers in December 2013.

Stained Fingers…and Possibly Toes

This week was the first session of our Stained Fingers Dye Camp. Four days of playing with colour and fibre. Exploring a wide range of dyeing techniques.

Day by day and hour by hour gaining more skill and confidence. Changing and challenging perception of “mistakes” and “wrong”. Turning “meh” to LOVE. This may be code. Or not. Occasional maniacal laughter… IMG_1502 Stained fingers and toes: And new fashion accessories… DSC_0015 So how much yarn and fibre can these women dye in 4 days? About this much: DSC_0038 Kind of makes you want to do this, doesn’t it?

4th Annual Highlands Fibre Fling!!!

Hi…

…and yea the wild green of the forests will open up, trees bending to our will, tulted aside by the sheer weight of fibre-y hubris and multitudinous hordes, rending atwixt the failing sods and voiding the very sky, the deepest Godz weeping in arcane tongues their megatudinal sorrow at being excluded from the surface orgy of ecstasticness, and the hills mummer’d in veiled attempts to roll a-down and join in the festive grandeur, so exquisite in their sublimity, and gravity herself being fragmented in a futile attempt to…but I digress. Um, where was I?

Oh yes,

On Saturday August 17, indigodragonfly Studios is holding its 4th annual Highlands Fibre Fling! An Open House & Yarn Sale, doors will be flung akimbo and you – yes you – are invited to partake in the days activities!

There will be yarn a-skeined, knitters a-knittin’, more yarn, dyeing demos, still more yarn, some hot baseball bat on piñata action, even more yarn, bbq, and if the rumours are true, there will be yarn!

Doors will open from 11 a.m. (we like our sleep, and it is a weekend day) until 4 p.m. We are at 1932 Kennisis Lake Road, just outside of West Guilford, approx. 10 minutes from Haliburton ON. For more detailed directions & event details, you can email Ron at: orders@indigodragonfly.ca

Here’s a shot of knitterly mayhem from the 2nd Annual Fling:

Please Note: the smoke is from a barbecue, not from some ritual sacrifice of Acrylic yarn…

Show up! Bring a chair, yer knitting, spinning wheels, an’ Enjoy!

See ya there….

The Yarn of Your People: Part 2

Last month our friends at Shall We Knit hosted a wedding shower/fundraiser for the indigodragonfly Studio  as part of their Worldwide Knit in Public festivities. As part of that event, we auctioned off naming and colour design rights and dyed their yarn at the event.  

Rocky Mountain High

Ronni’s yarn came next. Now, it’s important to note that not only were we dyeing yarn for a good friend, but um, she and her family came all the way from California to watch.

No pressure.

For Ronni Ron went for deep and dark greys with dusky purple and blue-violet casts to commemorate childhood memories of the Rocky Mountains.

When I was a child of single digit years we lived in Colorado and Wyoming. My parents liked the mountains and my mom had a mania for not staying home on the weekend and for going out and doing things but there’s not a lot to do there so we used to go up to them from the high plains part of the state where we lived nearly every weekend when the weather was good. I however, had terrible trouble with my eustachian tubes and my ears not popping easily so every weekend I would be sitting in the back seat in tears from the pain of the differential pressure until they popped. I had to keep my tears silent though because it wasn’t nice to ruin mom’s outing by fussing. So I chewed a lot of gum (which my mum otherwise refused to let me have because chewing gum was a “nasty” habit) and suffered. And it is certainly true that when they finally did pop once we were at whatever altitude we were stopping at for the day I enjoyed the mountains as much as the next person. Yet, now that I am a mommy I can’t imagine making my kid go through that. I’d have found a baby sitter and left her at home or something. But I am glad I did get to go in some ways because it was beautiful there.

Layers and layers….

IMG_1365 IMG_1366

To get another subtle colour way of my dreams:DSC_0041

Don’t worry mom, I know what I am doing, hydrogen is safe.

And finally, Russ and his…well, I’ll let him tell it…

I don’t know what colors one would associate with blowing up a basement. I was a freshman in high school and a geek before it was cool. for a science project, I made hydrogen, by soaking steel wool in vinegar. I tested it’s popping power by running a current through some other steel wool in a small cylinder of hydrogen. Getting bored with this, one day I made a small torch by burning hydrogen directly on the tube. The flame jumped through the tube into the gallon jug right by my head. After the explosion, My mom said her ears were ringing upstairs. Dust flew up from the floor and caught the sunlight in pretty little display. She didn’t say anything to me at the time, though. She just sat in her chair crocheting and chuckling.

…If you can make it work, throw in some yellow orange for the stars I saw as I flew through the air.

This one came with cackling…

IMG_1376

Possibly my favourite photo of the day:IMG_1380

And resulted in this:DSC_0033

(I hear rumours that someone in the crowd may have said, “I didn’t have a basement.” Seriously, I love you people!)

Magma Carta

Since we had pots and dye, Ron added an extra colour…as one does…

DSC_0039

All skeins have wandered off to new homes and raised a total of $3,110 for our Studio Fund.

Thanks again to M for her photography!

July 18 Yarn Update: Sad Lester, Humpspun & Sea Cell Silk!

Hiya,

We know that no-one out there is interested in Special Edition colourways – right??

That’s what we thought…

As with last week’s Yarn Update, since these are all Special Edition colourways (one-of-a-kind or test pots for future permanent colours), we are asking for a small donation per skein to go towards our Indigodragonfly Studio Build Fund. It can be as little as an extra $1 per skein, though we do suggest a minimum $5 per skein donation. All donations will be acknowledged on our website and in the Studio building itself.

Enjoy!!!

The Yarn of Your People: Part 1

Last month our friends at Shall We Knit hosted a wedding shower/fundraiser for the indigodragonfly Studio  as part of their Worldwide Knit in Public festivities. As part of that event, we auctioned off naming and colour design rights and dyed their yarn at the event.  Here’s what happened:

A Calm Quiet Life Together

The first colour idea came from Susan:

I would like to name a colour as a tribute to my husband and call it: “A Calm, Quiet Life Together.” Early in our relationship, he asked me if I thought that we could have such a life together. I foolishly said that I thought it was possible.

Since that time, we had 1 son, 2 late miscarriages, a difficult twin pregnancy (which allowed us to have 2 more wonderful sons), a life-threatening illness for one son and a life threatening illness for my husband, which is currently being managed successfully, but means we live with uncertainty. I am grateful for the life that we have, but it is anything but calm and quiet.

My husband is a painter and this is one of his paintings that I love:

And so we set to work:

IMG_1316

IMG_1321 IMG_1329

And the result:

DSC_0036

This became more than the inspiration for it…with colours fading in and out with each other. Such a warm combination.

Flying Squid: A Specialty

Then it was my turn to dye Chris’s yarn:

The story – My cousin Deb and her husband Bob have been incredibly generous over the years to me, my husband and I as well as numerous other people. I would like to be able in some small way not to repay them but to thank them. Bob did ask for a hat knit with merino and declared it the warmest thing he owned so definitely knit worthy and yarn naming worthy.
A few years ago they were on a cruise and Deb spotted flying squid. Bob got the photo. A friend of his in the scientific community blogged about it and that was picked up by Scientific American. However SA did not credit Bob for the photo which at that time was the first photographic evidence of flying squid. Boo hiss but don’t get mad get creative.
Bob’s business card reads in part “Photographer, Flying Squid a Specialty”

One thing I love about these kinds of colour ways, the ones that don’t have to be consistent or repeatable, is that it’s painting in the dye pot.

And that’s exactly what I did.

IMG_1335 IMG_1337

IMG_1353

To get this:

DSC_0027

My favourite yarn colours are the ones that shift and change under your fingers as you knit. A touch of green…a little grey…a million subtle shades of blue.

Thank you to M for taking the camera out of my hands and documenting the process.

And yes…there were more.  Come back on Friday for the next round.

Want to make your own contribution to our Studio Fund? Tomorrow’s yarn update (July 18 at 3 pm Eastern) is all about that.

And of course there’s also our indiegogo campaign right here.

Pass Me The Hammer; or, So That’s What A Plumb Bob Is For!

So, have you ever cooked food in a kitchen?

We have. A long, long time ago, in a story that goes something like this (a one an’ a two an’ a…):

2009: Sure it’s a hobby, but yeah I can totally dye a skein of yarn for you. Okay, I’ll do that on Friday.

2013: It’s Friday? Hmm. Okay…now what month did you say it was???

Yes, business has been…well, busy. And not just yer regular 9 to 5, I hate my boss and wish upon a fallen unicorn their overblown hairstyle would finally collapse under the weight of their vile übermousse and crush their puny skull into the black hole of nothingness that it is and please for the love of possum also take that unfortunate pantsuit with it kind of busy but hey I digress so…um, what was the point?

Oh yes, we’re busy.

Stupid busy.

And it’s time to take the Stupid to School.

Since we purchased the house and property we were renting nearly a year ago, we’ve started the discussion of building a yarn studio. Business was good, orders were coming in at a fairly regular rate, wholesale clients were coming on board. From 2011 to 2012, business doubled. Now we’re at that point where every successful business gets, which is to look at the current business plan and decide whether or not to expand. And it’s now time to let out the seams!

We’ve got the sales: Check. We’ve put in place a build design: Check. And this is where you – the Inquisitive Chipmunk-Herding Minions of Immoderation™ – come in!

We’ve got in place start-up funding, and now we’re looking to squirrel-poke this bad boy over the top (but not in a cheesy old Sylvester Stallone movie kind of way). And so to slam home the Forearm Of Victory (okay, so there will be a little bit of arm wrestling, but mostly between cuddly wildlife critters), we’ve set up our very own Indiegogo Campaign!!!

Here’s how it works: Go to our Campaign Page.

Pick Yer Stuff!!!

It’s that simple.

Share our campaign page through Facebook, Twitter, Ravelry posts…basically with everyone you know!

Why?? More pretty pretty yarn, faster turnaround times, the ability to take on more wholesale clients,  employment opportunities for a job-poor community, and perks. Perks, I tells ya!

Thank You.

And oh yes, please pass the Campaign Page link on!

We’re looking forward to cooking in our kitchen again.

Yarn Anyone???

Oh yes, we do have some new Yarn Goodness!!!

In addition to the usual sweetness, we’ve dyed up a whole mess o’ super-sweet, non-repeatable, totally-braggable Special Editions, so LOOK! SCOOP!! FLAUNT!!! NEFARIOUS LAUGHTER!!!! This is also one of the biggest posts we’ve put out there, so remember – seat belts on, juice boxes handy, notepads to the ready – Safety First!

***Now, one thing: For the Special Edition colour ways, We originally created them with in mind of being an auctioned-off fundraiser for our Studio Build, but that’s really time-consuming and time is something in rather short supply these days. So to make life a bit simpler…

If you would like to purchase one (or more) of the Special Edition colourways – they’re all posted with a highly visible (Special Edition) header – we’re asking that you add a small donation per each Special Edition skein to the Studio Fund. It can be as little as $1 per skein, with a recommended $5 per skein, with the ultimate goal being Getting The Studio Built, which means More Yarn Faster Turnaround Speedier Service Happy Minions More Chipmunk Employment Opportunities!!! When you email in your order, just let us know what you’d like to add, and yes, Canadian Tire money is accepted!!!***

Okay, on yer marks, get set…
