 Midnightsky Fibers has a new pattern collection up- Space Hats Collection- 6 of my fabulous and easy to knit hat patterns all bundled together to give you a marvelous discount. The patterns are designed with interesting but easy to knit detailing to really show off your favorite yarns- especially handspun yarns! The patterns are full color PDF's for you to keep on your computer or print out. The patterns are on sale as a colletion for $10. The price will go up in the next couple days, so get it at $10 now!

Artist Licenses are also available for people who would like to knit patterns for sale- see the wholesale page (which also has all the info about the patterns if you are interested in wholesale).

While you are at Midnightsky Fibers check out the current handspun yarn project- 101 Yarns 101 Days. Every day a new naturally dyed and handspun yarn is posted- see day 32 "carrot" above! And yes, it is actually dyed with carrot!

Last Day for $12 Patterns! Dec. 21st, 2009 @ 11:50 am
(Terraform Hat seamed at the back for a nice pointed top.)
oday is the last day to buy the hat patterns at a discounted price on Midnightsky Fibers. The hat patterns are yummy and delightful...but being rewritten! You will get the current copies of the patterns now, and the spiffy verion in a little bit once they are...well. Spiffy. But only available for a few more hours! Patterns available here.

Hats are designed to be used with a bulky or super bulky weight handspun yarn.
They knit up quickly, great for last minute gifts!

Midnightsky Fibers Sale Oct. 10th, 2009 @ 04:57 pm

+The patterns for the Space Hats Kit and Cloche Hat Kit are awesome. But they are also kinda hard to tell what they really look like since they are not on an actual head you can see...yet. So the patterns do not yet have the super pretty pictures they will eventually have. So, here is your chance to get the patterns at a reduced price before I finish the patterns off super nicely. You are getting both patterns for $7, over half off the price- cloche hat will be $7 and Space Hats will be $10. And even better, when the patterns ARE done several weeks from now you will get the new complete patterns with the sexy pictures. These are perfect for fall and are quick to knit in bulky yarns. Use Midnightsky Fibers handspun yarns, your own handspun, or a commercial bulky or super bulky yarn. I will email these to you by hand, so please be aware that there will be a slight delay (hey, I have to sleep and go to the gym sometimes!).

Available in my shop here: Midnightsky Fibers Patterns. The kits to make these are also available as well.
-- There are also new handmade items- handspun handknit hats, even a sweater. Check back for more to be listed soon! Perfect for those of you who don't knitcrochet but do appreciate something crafty and expertly executed with just the right amount of funky handspun yarn.

More new stuff in the shop: Fiber packs, naturally dyed rovings in semi solid fall colors, and more! Once the cat stops sitting in the lightbox there will be bamboo and mohair fibers too!

» Favourite wheel?
I'm considering buying a new wheel.
I've used an Ashford Elisabeth only until now, so I'm asking what your opinions are on wheels.
Especially after reading through this thread

In two weeks time I have the fortune to be travelling to New Zealand
and I'll be able to visit both the Ashford and Majacraft factories.

So here's my questions:
1.) What has been your favourite wheel to spin on?
2.) What is your all time dream wheel to own?

(the answers don't have to be Ashford or Majacraft, I'm just curious)
» Naturally Dyed Yarn Update!

Pssttt! Site update at Midnightsky Fibers!

New in this update- yarns and fibers from local fleeces! There are fibers from local sheep, handspun local yarns, and dk weight yarns spun by a small mill from Clun Forest sheep from Washington. I also set aside some of these in natural form for people who want undyed yarns. Check out the new “local” section at the top of the shop to see all the local goodies!

Also new this week are plenty of new sock yarns and fibers dyed with Indigo, lots of new handspun, and even a few items of spinning equipment that I am destashing in the sale section.
