Fun Fur.

With a sweet face, spiraling horns, and delightfully rotund body, Friendsheep by Cate Carter-Evans lets you transform your novelty and textured yarns into sweet, fleecy little friends. Pattern available on Ravelry; more info at infinitetwist.com

Instead of wrestling with paper, use the knitCompanion app. It keeps you on track so you can knit more and frog less. knitCompanion works with ALL your patterns and is available for apple, android and kindle fire devices.

Lisa has her own vision of the world and the colors in these hand dyed mill spun yarns are from deep in her imagination or from just outside, in her gardens, where Mother Nature gets it right.
Three decades of taking fleeces through all forms of preparation have led to the conclusion that life is too short to spin with second rate fibers and so everything that you find within this section is pure heaven to spin. From long wools to downy cashmere, you can feel confident that they are the best that can run through your fingers.
