Q & A: Knitting for Warmth

Q & A: Knitting for Warmth

Family snowshoeing day. I was so warm, I had to take my hat off. ; ) I recently received this question from  @atomicagecrochet, "...I'd love to know what you do or recommend for warmth in winter..." Good question! Since I live in Canada (albeit a fairly mild part of it, New Westminster, BC in the Pacific Northwest) however we do live in a small old house built in 1929, and we're conscious of heating costs (read, we're cheap because we save our money for important things, like chocolate), so we tend to run the heat a bit on the low...

What's Crocking? Indigo's Strange Awesomeness.

If you've ever had a favourite pair of perfectly faded blue jeans (not the super-fake-printed-to-look-worn ones), you know what crocking is. It's something unique to indigo dye, and its different than dye that hasn't taken properly, and is washing off. (Not cool) If you've ever knitted or crocheted with indigo dyed yarn, you may have noticed that your fingers, and perhaps knitting needles (or crochet hook) started turning blue! Don't panic, this is crocking, and its completely safe, and normal. If you're the kind of person that enjoys these strange fibrey phenomena, you may even be a little tickled by...
