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.

Small human blanket in-progress! 

One square down, 3 and a border to go.

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.

Madeline Curry thinks she’s got this superhero business all sewn up with her DIY alter-ego “The Knittrix.” She’s just trying to do her duty and clean up the streets, one slipped stitch at a time, but she’s about to find out that fighting bullies isn’t always black and white. Sometimes it’s hot pink.

The second issue of The Knittrix saga will bring Madeline face to face with a fierce trio of preteens who give her a run for her needles and leave her looking for help from the mysterious Monsieur Du Crochet. Can she defeat the ultra-hip Trixie and her BFF’s or are things about to get a whole lot worsted for our crafty heroine?
Check out The Knittrix Issue #2: “Trixie and The Superbrats” to find out.
Hey all! Unfortunately due to some unforeseen circumstances we are not able to have the Issue #2 print run available at the con - but the comic will be going up online very soon, and you will be able to order a print copy as soon as they are ready. (And they will definitely be with us @ VanCAF in May.)
Keep an eye on this tumblr for updates. 
If you’re in Seattle for the convention though, there’s still lots of awesome stuff going on at table D-4 - posters, buttons and freshly printed copies of Issue #1 - so come and say hi! 
Getting so close to ECCC! We are so stoked. 
Also I am relieved that I don’t seem to be running out of yarn puns. 

theknittrix:

Hey all!

Hope you are as pumped for Emerald City 2014 as we are! 

Our table location is D-4 - as you can see from the little red dot on the map we are on the south side of the convention centre. Click through for the full map of the show floor on ECCC’s website. 

If you like comics, and/or knitting and/or combinations thereof, stop by and see us! We’ll have freshly printed copies of Issue #1, the debut of Issue #2, as well as posters, prints and buttons. 

Hope to see you there! :)

Drop by and see us! 

Asker Anonymous Asks:
I just acquired a giant box of acrylic yarn and I have no idea what to do with it. I've always been told how horrible acrylic is, but I don't want it to go to waste. What sort of patterns/uses are best for this fiber?
dramallamaknitting dramallamaknitting Said:

knittingfuckyeah:

blankets are a really good option for acrylic yarn because it’s hard to destroy, easier to care for than regular wool, and also it’s a good option for those with wool allergies. if you have several different colors that you don’t know what to do with, you could always try knitting an afghan or throw.

you could also:

  • use it to knit totes or cozies
  • donate it to a senior center that holds knitting or crocheting activities
  • use the yarn to knit children’s hats or mittens, and donate those as well

I think this is great advice.

The penguins need our help!

The Penguin Foundation has a global callout for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
You can download more information about how to knit for penguins, including the knitting pattern and where to send the finished product.

It’s that time again!
