If you ever wondered what Emily and I sound like, now you can find out! While Emily and I were in the same time zone (a rare thing) we had the chance to chat with Felicia of SweetGeorgia yarns on her Podcast, The SweetGeorgia Show!
A long long time ago, before I worked at Urban Yarns, discovered Ravelry, met Emily, and started Tin Can Knits, I took a field trip to a wee yarn dying studio in Vancouver called SweetGeorgia. I was just starting to expand my knitting horizons and and Felicia was dying up amazing vibrant colours – I was an immediate fan!
A week ago I had an awesome opportunity: a golden ticket to see the Sweet Fiber dye studio! I got to see where Melissa works her magic and even help experiment with a new colorway!
I recently visited Lilith of Old Maiden Aunt in her studio in West Kilbride. After working with her yarns in my lace collection Handmade in the UK, I was curious to hear more about her business, chat about colour, and and fully appreciate the beauty of her yarns!
KT of Morgan’s Fine Yarns will be representing Tin Can Knits at the Vancouver Island Fibre Fest May 3rd-5th in Campbell River.
I love the slight halo of beautiful Orkney angora. I used this special yarn for the Botany shawl in Handmade in the UK.
