Happy Holidays Everyone!

This year has gone by so fast! I am sure you are all knitting amazing knitwear swag to give to family and friends this holiday season. We understand how you feel. I am currently working on a wonderful tunic dress which you can find here and I am working on a pair of toe-up socks.

We are working really hard at Lady Dye Yarns and we wanted to share with you two great opportunities from LDY this holiday season. More information is below.

We wanted to take this time to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and we have more news and updates to share with you this month! Until next time, keep knitting and stay warm!

Tech Knits

Posted on by admin / Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

We all love knitting cute sweaters and hats for ourselves to wear. But have you ever taken your knitting beyond the garment? For instance, accessories for our gadgets are on-trend right now- and super necessary! Smartphones and computers have become part of our every day lives- so why not knit something cool for them?

We love this awesome Iphone cozy by blogger KnittyButton. The stripes and bright colors would look great in a Lady Dye colorway, don’t you think? Check out the pattern here: http://knittybutton.com/2010/09/17/another-ipod-cozy/

If you want to try out a crochet project for your gadget, give this pretty striped Ipad cover by Lisa Pocklington a try. We love the vintage chevron look, so cool! Head over to the designer’s blog to see the pattern: http://lisapocklington.blogspot.fr/2012/09/designer-free-crochet-ipad-cover.html?m=1

We LOVE this fun, hilarious knit laptop cover by Brittany Coughlin. Although “cover” is the wrong word, this is a laptop SWEATER, literally! It has a turtleneck and everything! This is so great we need one!! http://www.allfreeknitting.com/Knit-Accessories/Knit-Laptop-Sweater-Pattern/ml/1/?utm_source=ppl-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=allfreeknitting20140303

 

Have you knit any cool cases for your gadgets?

 

 

Last Season

Have you seen this cool fiber art project?

Two Amsterdam-based artists, Lenert Engleberts & Sander Plug use designer sweaters as their medium in this piece that is part sculpture, part performance. Taking sweaters from last season from designers such as Prada and Celine, the duo carefully unravels each garment.

Once completely unraveled, the remaining yarn is wound into a ball, and the garment label attached in plain view.

What does this piece say to you? Does it make you think of upcycling? Of the relationship between process and material? And what do you think it says about these designers?

Yarn Bomb @ The Eliot School & Interview With Chronicle!

This past week we had an amazing opportunity at Lady Dye! Not only did we install a yarn bomb at The Eliot School in Jamaica Plain, we got filmed and interviewed by Chronicle while doing it!

IMG_0987

Check it out!

We installed our fun little yarn bomb on the front welcome sign- the perfect addition to an art school, don’t you think?

IMG_0996

Lady Dye talked about contemporary knitting, including yarn bombing! Our biggest question- is it legal?

IMG_1003

The answer- no it is not! Gotta watch out for cops!

IMG_1007

We got away with it this time!

Thanks Chronicle and The Eliot School, we had a great time! make sure to tune in to see Lady Dye on TV!

P.S. Jamaica Plain News stopped by to check out our yarnbomb as well! Read the article here!

Busy Busy!

Posted on by admin / Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

We have been SO busy lately! Between starting production on our orders, moving our studio space, and thinking about next year’s collection, we’ve barely had a minute to breathe! But it’s definitely a good kind of busy-we’re so excited for what we have in store for the rest of this year!

What we’re most psyched about is the release of our collection in more stores! Right now, Lady Dye is available around the Boston area and in our webshop, but at the end of the summer yarn stores around the country will carry us! We can’t wait!

Is Lady Dye coming to a shop near you? Keep in touch with us on social media and keep reading our blog to find out!

Paulo Ito “Talks” About Brazil’s World Cup

Posted on by admin / Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Have you heard of Brazillian artist Paulo Ito? He’s currently the most-talked about artist in Brazil right now, as well as any country that has a large soccer following.

As you may or may not have heard, Brazil is hosting the 2014 World Cup. While the task of hosting the tournament is often taken on with pride, the cost of the event has left many Brazillins feeling uneasy about whether the country is up to it. Ito’s mural sums up these worries harshly, but truthfully:

IBvUwbF

With 25 percent of Brazil’s population living under the poverty line, meaning approximately 50 million, are in the same boat as the child in the image- unable to afford food. Ito’s emotionally charged mural has since gone viral, with many viewers weighing in their own opinions on the image.

No matter your views on street art, the mural has certainly accomplished what it has set out to do- start a conversation on an important issue that needs to be talked about. What do you think of Ito’s mural?

Knits for Dad

Posted on by admin / Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Father’s Day is soon- this weekend in fact! In honor of the dads of the world (and any dude who rocks cool knitwear!) here’s a roundup of some of our favorite knitting patterns for guys!

Mens-cabled-hat-pattern

This men’s cabled hat pattern by Shana from Needyl will keep the wearer nice and cozy for the winter. It’s an easy pattern, great for practicing cabling, and great for dad! Get the pattern here: http://www.allfreeknitting.com/Mens-Knit-Hats/mens-cabled-hat-pattern

If you want to tackle something more ambitious, this Aran cardigan, aptly named the Dad’s cardigan, would be a good bet. The look is classic, but the intricate details make it special. Try it out:

If your dad is more fashion-forward, try a more unique project- like this knit tie by Vickie Howell. It’s an easy project that definitely makes a statement. Check it out:

It was a LONG winter in Boston, but Spring is finally here! We’re digging the sunshine and warm weather- mostly because it is the perfect weather for yarn bombing!

Lady Dye recently collaborated on this awesome flower-bombed bench with her good friend Amy! Located right in the lovely Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain- we think it came our great!

We’re always gathering yarn for our future yarn-bombing projects. We can’t wait to do more this season! What do you like to knit in the springtime?

Happy Spring!
