Busy Busy!

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

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:


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

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!


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:


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!

Hello from Indianapolis!

It’s been quite a journey but we finally rolled into town last night! We got to spend a night in Chicago before shipping out to our final destination: The TNNA show in Indianapolis! We made it, and there is a LOT to be done!

We’re definitely determined to have the most awesome booth at TNNA, so it’s a busy day for us. Gotta make sure our yarns look their best! We can’t give away everything yet, but there’s gonna be lots of color involved, and it wouldn’t be Lady Dye if we didn’t show off some street art!

So if you’re at TNNA, make sure to come by and say hi! We’ll be at booth 954! If not, check our instagram, facebook, and twitter and you’ll feel like you’re there with us!

See you there!
