Drama Llama Knitting Company produces handspun and Hand-dyed yarns, as well as knitting accessories and patterns.

Our dream: By moving towards selling yarn from local-ish, ethically sourced fiber, we hope you bring your sweater a little bit closer (figuratively speaking) to the sheep it came from. (Or alpaca, or goat, or bundle of flax!)

For those about to craft, we salute you.

Does anyone else do this?

I like to keep a map of places I’ve shipped yarn to. No specific information about the buyer or the transaction, just the name of their city. 

It’s neat to think about all the different places that my yarn has gone to, or where a pattern i’ve created is being used.

Singapore is definitely the furthest away so far, but looking at this map makes me want to create more things and send them to far away places. 

Hey Drama Llama and Knittrix fans! (Or just people who dig this blog.)

I know I’ve been AWOL for the past few months but I have been taking a bit of a sabbatical from yarn arts to focus on keeping relatively sane. 

But! I just wanted to post and let you know that this movie I wrote was released on DVD and streaming this week, and if you like cheese 3D animated kids movies about halloween, maybe consider checking it out?

More yarn stuff to come hopefully - goodness knows I’ve still got a massive stash that needs busting.

Iris, 2013

BFL dyed by my lovely friend Tina of Bittersweet Woolery. I bought the fiber at Rhinebeck 2012 and started spinning it right away. Something interrupted me so I finished it in 2013, then entered it into every competition I could manage. It’s a true 3ply and is about a DK weight. I have these two skeins plus three small ones of leftovers.


Handspun that will soon be knit into a shawl


My most epic project of all time… a present for my sister and her new husband :D

This project is insanely amazing!


I tried my hand at dyeing a gradient yarn using Wilton food color paste  for the orange and RIT Dye for the black. They ended up looking like Tiger Static, but I like them. 

They’re Halloweeny socks for one of my witchiest friend for Christmas.

Woah I love these.

What became of the Moonrover I spun up recently.

Warp is Cascade 220.

It’s a basic weave but I varied the pick density to create subtle stripes.

I wasn’t sold on this immediately as it came off the loom but it feels kind of rustic and west coast-y which I like.
