This past weekend we did our normal dyeing on Saturday morning and pulled together a wholesale order for one of our new customers!  

On Sunday, we had decided to pull out all of our different yarn bases and to dye some of each base in our signature colorway. The results were awesome and I just had to take a moment to share the pics! Thanks!!

Yarn on!!

Twisted Owl Chunky Seed Stitch Scarf

I love the look of stockinette, but it always curls… to solve this problem it’s super easy to add a border around a scarf and I have a certain love affair with simple seed stitch.

2-3 Skeins of Twisted Owl Chunky
Size 11 Needles

CO 25 sts

Work 10 rows in Seed st (K1, P1) always beginning and ending with a K.

Row 11- {K1, P1, K1, P1, K1}*, K until 5 sts remain, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.

Row 12- K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P until 5 sts remain, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1

*First and Last 5 sts of each row will be seed sts beginning and ending with a K.

Work rows 11 & 12 until you have used most of your yarn-you still have the 10 rows of Seed Stitch border left!

Work 10 rows in Seed st
Bind off using your favorite BO method, weave in ends and enjoy!


TOFS and DFW Yarn Crawl 2015!!!

Abby Owens

As a lot of you already know, the Fourth Annual DFW Yarn Crawl occurred over the past week and a half, August 21-30, in yarn/fiber/knitting/crocheting shops and business all over the DFW and NE Texas area.  It's a great time for shops to open their doors to Yarnies and for all the fiber fans to be able to get out and meet and network together.

This year, TOFS had the privilege of bringing some of our hand dyed yarn and  setting up a display in The Fiber Circle, in Farmersville, TX. Diane, the owner of The Fiber Circle, gave TOFS some room right in the front of her store and gave us the opportunity to meet lots of Yarnies and fiber fans and the also show off some of our beautiful hand dyed yarn. Abby and I would like to thanks Diane and Gordon at The Fiber Circle, as well all the people that came into the shop to meet us and chat about our yarn and other yarn related things. We got to meet a lot of great people and we just wanna thank all of you!

ALSO... if you've never made it to Farmersville, you need to take a day and go visit The Fiber Circle!!! I heard the store refered to as "yarn heaven" more times than I could keep track of this weekend.

Here's some pics from this great weekend! Please take note that The Fiber Circle is literally packed to the ceiling with yarn. lol

Yarn On!

Knittin' Dawg!!

Caught our lil old man dog, JJ, nosing through some of the single ply Worsted yarn in our "Lucy" colorway. Luckily it was just a scrap of yarn from something that Abby tore out, otherwise JJ would've been in T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!! lol Luckily he's a cute dog and loves yarn as much as Abby and I do!! Just had to share this cute picture!!
