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.

Currently knitting a garter-yoke cardigan out of this handspun.

Trying not to think about what happens when I run out.

Knitting by the seat of my pants!

Definitely skeinspiration.

Here’s a cool thing! Knitpicks is offering four knitting patterns that give their proceeds to WORK+SHELTER, a organization that helps women living in the slums of New Delhi:

WORK+SHELTER … will offer women living in the slums of New Delhi a fresh start. Theresa is working to give these women decent living conditions and a chance to build a better future. WORK+SHELTER will be a safe place where women can come with their children to live and work. She will be providing training, materials, and a fair wage, and members of WORK+SHELTER will be producing products to be sold in boutiques around the world. Theresa asked me to design garments and accessories that will be hand knit by the women living and working at WORK+SHELTER

At 2.99 for this cute clutch pattern, and 2.69 for the yarn, it doesn’t cost a lot to do a good thing.

Siren Elisa Wilhelmsen has created the 365 Clock, a year long clock, that turns very slowly and holds a knitting needle, spool, and and ball of yarn. The machine slowly but surely threads out another piece of yarn each day, and after one calender year, it will complete one two meter ‘hand made’ scarf.

I’ve seen this tumbl’d a few times now but this is the first time I’ve noticed the quotations around ‘hand-made’ 

Do you think something is hand made if it’s made by an individual with a knitting machine, rather than hand-knitted?

Or is the term ‘hand made’ better used to refer to the fact that something is made by a small business, rather than a large commercial enterprise with machines pumping out thousands of scarves a day?

Tell me your opinions, crafty tumbltons!

Cotton Candy or Roving?

I’m down either way.

I just finished cataloging all of my knitting needles/crochet hooks on Ravelry, which I was initially reluctant to do when I joined. 

Pros: Easy to figure out whether you have the needles you need.

Cons: Forces you to face the harsh reality that you have WAY too many knitting needles.

I love these feesh. Especially the herringbone.
