Happy Friday the 13th!

Hello Fiber Friends!

You may or may not have noticed – there’s a new look, a new logo and a new name! I have rebranded to Sisteresque Fibers!

No need for you to change the blog you follow, the Instagram or twitter, not even my Etsy shop. I have updated it all to reflect the new branding.

Change is good! As I am working on self love, self acceptance and just being more me, I needed a change to my business that would better reflect my particular interests. I love the occult, the creepy and the weird and I always have! In fact, some of you may have noticed, I also have brand new audio podcast with my sister called Sisteresque (like how I keep it in the family?) which you can find at www.sisteresque.com as well as on Stitcher, Itunes, and hopefully soon Spotify and Google Play!

A Coven Wedding – you’re all invited! One of my new colorways for the new brand!

I hope this new brand will help me to have a more specific focus and that you, my yarniac followers, will grow and explore the mystical, the magical and the self with me.  If I can teach myself the website ropes a bit more, I hope to move my shop here to my website rather than Etsy, but baby steps. Part of my self love and self acceptance is knowing I can’t do it all at once.

Also, I’m pretty proud of my logo. I went ahead and figured out how to make one myself! Its a simple and a bit slap dash, but I love it for that.

Thank you all for checking out my site and for your continued support! Every like, every comment, every follow and yes, every purchase from my shop, gives me a boost in more ways than I can tell you. I love you all!

Happy Friday the 13th!

I’m with you Sisters and Brethren 🙂

Touchstone Shawl And Other Updates

Hello my dear fiber friends! Life has been hectic and I have missed you!! I am finally back for a Friday update. I have a few things off the needles, some new projects going and fun podcast surprise to tease! Let’s get into it!

 

My Touchstone Shawl by Laura Aylor is finally off the needles! I have had a number of distractions, I have never been a monogamous knitter, but here it is! I used my own hand dyed DK weight yarn and my Knitter’s Pride Zing needles. The colorways from my shop in this shawl are: Remnants; Coffee and Pie, Oh My!; and Chateau de Bleu.

I did very much enjoy this shawl. The pattern itself is simple to follow and the lace is not complicated. It’s definitely a shawl you can knit while watching Father Brown on Netflix without worrying about making a mistake. (I just love those BBC detective style shows, don’t you?!) I love the way this shawl can be wrapped up and accessorized and I’m excited to have it ready for cool nights!

I also started and finished a two color brioche Pussy Hat this week, finally! I’m always behind the curve on trends, but I just had the perfect yarns for some brioche and thought a hat would be a quick, satisfying knit. I was right! The blue colorway is The Water Is Fine from Spun Right Round and the pink is Wild Roseberry by Life In The Long Grass. Both super gorgeous, luscious yarns! I loved working on this hat!

Lastly, for this Friday, I am working on a Lucy Cloche by Carina Spencer with the left over Life In The Long Grass yarn from my Pussy Hat. I chose this hat because one of my dogs is Lucy 🙂 It has a contrast color band, and I will use the blue Spun Right Round for that. I’m hoping to have this hat done by Sunday, when I will be podcasting with a special guest! You will have to stay tuned to meet my guest, and if we’re all very lucky, my guest might join me regularly! So watch for the new episode and wish me luck in finishing my hat!

That’s all for the knitting update. I will show off my four at a time socks soon!

Before I go, I want to tell my Raleigh area yarniacs to mark your calendars for May 19th! I will be at the first ever Downtown Knits Indie Dyer Pop Up Market! I will be selling my squishy, fun yarns and my cute stitch markers up close and in person! Do come to Downtown Knits in Apex to see me and my other indie dyer and maker friends: Super Stitchy, Debbie Duck Yarns, Handmade By Zan, Hey Lady Hey and Full Lotus Pottery! Stop in and see us!
