Among Friends Club by Knitted Wit & Sincere Sheep

Posted on Feb 02, 2012. 3 comments

One of the best things about having my own business is the ability to work with other women-owned small businesses who work out of the US and North America. Here are two dyers out there who are talented and pretty special too.

Sincere Sheep
Brooke, owner and dyer of Sincere Sheep focuses on farm fiber and dyeing luxurious yarn with natural dyes in Northern California. You can see her beautiful, subtly semi solid yarns here. Brooke sources locally grown and processed wool when possible and takes a lot of care and time when creating her yarns.

Knitted Wit
Lorajean, owner and dyer of Knitted Wit yarns specializes in happy, bright, candy colored yarns in yummy bases. I'm knitting with her feather weight right now in Orchid and the color brightens my day. Lorajean is a stay at home Mama to two boys and fiber is her outlet. I've also enjoyed cocktails with Lorajean and she is a hoot. And by hoot I mean makes me laugh until my sides hurt. Click here to see Lorajean's Candy Colored Yarn.

among friends
Lorajean and Brooke and joined forces for a 3 month club called Among Friends. The first installment includes a yarn from Sincere Sheep with a specially designed accessory pattern by PDXKnitterati, Michele Bernstein. The second installment has a skein of yarn dyed by Knitted Wit and a unique pattern from Carrie Sullivan of Irish Girlie Knits. The final month includes a skein of yarn from Knitted Wit AND Sincere Sheep and a pattern designed by me that will use both yarns!

So if you're up for some fresh new yarn and a few great designs you can purchase your spot in the Among Friends Club here or here. You'll be supporting some amazing women-owned small businesses, getting some awesome yarn in the mail, plus some patterns from some talented designers. I really appreciate the time and care that these women put into their work and I hope you'll join me in supporting them with their first club, Among Friends.
