Our Local Yarn Store, Knitique, in Elk Grove, CA

Our local yarn store is Knitique, www.knitique.net, and we’ve been building a fine friendship with them over the last year.  As of today they are officially carrying several of our yarns, including a custom-dyed, exclusive self striping colorway for the holidays, “Jingleberry,” and our new worsted superwash in solid colors.  There will be lots more to come in the next two months!  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by this fabulous yarn shop.  There’s always a group knitting in the comfy couches or at the friendly back table.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like…

Holiday dyeing!  We’ve been busy with some lovely holiday colors, stripes and yarns.  Here’s Peppermint Twist, in merino/nylon high twist sock:

Self striping yummyness!

We’re dyeing lace too (from left to right, Christmas Cactus, Pool, A Dozen Roses and Noble Fir):


Despite dyeing like crazy, we’re knitting a little, too.  Here is one of our December sock club choices, “Holiday Peppers,” in merino/nylon/stellina sock:


And our December Chubby, in “Presents”:

One can be both goth AND festive.

And, better late than never, a finished pair of Wicked socks.  What’s on your needles these days?

Caught lying under the house. Again.
