Hello everyone! I wanted to write a very transparent update, so here goes. I know I’ve been quiet here on the blog, on Ravelry, and on social media. Truth is, there hasn’t been anything new to write about. I had been hoping to get the shop going again, but the interest hasn’t been there.… Read More
We will be pulling from these bright, cheery colors for the April and May shipments, giving subscribers plenty of time to knit something sunny in time for summer days!
I’m finally starting a newsletter! It’s called from the nest, just like this blog, and I’m really excited about it. I’m going to use it to make sure everyone knows about new things happening here at Annie Yarn. I’ll talk about new colorways I’m cooking up, new yarn bases in our line-up, and send out calls… Read More

When I first began developing multi-colored colorways like Patina, I used the dip method. It was easy, and it created lovely results. But once I began dyeing large quantities, I realized it just wasn’t going to work. I don’t have a dip-dyeing apparatus that would hold the skeins half out of the water for me… Read More
With yesterday being the first official day of fall (and the weather here in Georgia actually feeling like it), I have the urge to get even more organized, make improvements, and start new things. I’m sure you can relate if that autumn scent is in the air where you live — it seems to be… Read More
