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.

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!

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.

Finally finished spinning up this roving from Moonrover. 

Can’t wait to weave it up! 

Small human blanket in-progress! 

One square down, 3 and a border to go.

Words I gotta remember more often.

I’ve really been enjoying embroidering quotes lately - trying to figure out different techniques. This one is from comedian Chris Gethard who is a great source of inspiration.

Working on a small blanket for a small human.

Hey guys, I have been away from this blog for a while working on some personal projects, but you can still find me on my non-crafty tumblr. 

I am working on a little baby blanket so I will try to remember and post the progress. I am really excited about it! I’m knitting it out of Cascade 220, on 5mm needles, using Garter Stitch. 

As you can see from my sketch there will be 4 blocks in a windmill pattern, each one representing a different season through color. Also planning a small cream border with grey stripes.

Attention Vancouver fiber-folks!

If you get the chance, make it a priority to hit up Bandidas Taqueria on The Drive in the next couple months - Kim O’Brien has covered the walls in her amazing felted art pieces and they are truly something to behold.
