Artisan Showcase: Zen Yarn Garden

Saturday January 21 and Sunday January 22

This weekend we will have more than 600 skeins of the amazing hand dyed yarns from Zen Yarn Garden. Bases include: Serenity Lace, Silk +, Silk Single, 20, Glitter Sock, DK, Worsted, Chunky and Superfine Fingering. Many colors are one of a kind.

Zen Yarn Garden, Inc. is based is Ontario, Canada and run by full time husband and wife team Roxanne and Neville Yeun.

Their yarn is special.  Here is what they have to say “We know that every hank you buy is destined to have many hours in your stash and on your needles before it becomes a garment or accessory item that you will wear proudly. With each skein, we strive to reflect the same passion that you have for your projects and craft in our yarns.”

Castalia Shawl by Gale Zucker

It is easy to get overwhelmed at a trunk show like this. There is so much to look at. It is all beautiful! People are grabbing skeins. Suddenly all your project ideas disappear.

Welted Slouch Hat by Stephen West

So here is some advice:

  1. Before you come, check out the yarns on Ravelry. What have people made? In general, how many skeins make a shawl or a hat or a pair of mittens?
  2. If you have some projects that you have been wanting to make, bring those patterns with you. We will be happy to show you which of the yarns would work and how much you need to buy.
  3. Here are some ideas to get you started. The Castalia shawl takes three coordinating skeins of worsted. This cowl takes two skeins of Serenity Silk Single. The Welted Slouch hat takes one skein of Serenity 20. This wrap take 3 – 5 skeins of Serenity DK.
  4. Come look even if you don’t have time to do research. There are LOTS of things that you can do with just one skein of yarn (including combine it with another skein of yarn.) We will help you figure it out.
  5. AND everyone knows that sock yarn doesn’t count as stash.

The end of February seems like a long ways off, but I know some of you need time to prepare (mentally) for our Annual Golden Needle Awards.

The Golden Needle Awards is a celebration of the knitters and crocheters in our String Theory community. That’s you!

The idea is that everyone brings in the one thing that they have made in the last year (with yarn purchased at String Theory, of course) that they are most happy with – a sweater that fits perfectly, a color combination that really works, your first pair of socks….

One of the best parts about working at String Theory is the daily show and tell. We love it when you bring in your finished objects. We helped you pick out the yarn. We might have helped you fix a mistake or decipher a pattern. We love seeing your idea materialized. When we “ooh” and “aah”, it is because we appreciate all that went into it.

Jody posing on the 2016 red carpet

In the weeks leading up to the event, we ask people what they are going to bring to the Golden Needle Awards. Some people have already thought it through and have an answer ready.

It is the rest of you that I want to talk to for a moment.

Some people tell me, that they don’t have any of the things they’ve knit. They’ve given them all away! If this sounds like you, I challenge you to treat yourself to some selfish knitting in 2017. You are the most knitworthy person you know! Who better than you can appreciate a luxurious yarn, an intricate stitch pattern, something that fits just right?

Some people tell me that all their projects have mistakes in them. Of course they do! Most everything I make has a mistake in it. The only difference is that I don’t point them out. When I compliment others on a project they’ve made, too often I hear “I love the …, but do you see this mistake I made…?” Nobobdy is looking for your mistakes. Really.

So I encourage you to put the Golden Needle Awards on your calendar and then decide which of your recent projects is your favorite. We want to see it.

2017 Golden Needle Awards
Sunday, February 26
12 – 4pm

Please join us to celebrate the achievements of our very own String Theory community.

Every year in the spirit of the Academy Awards, String Theory hosts our Golden Needle Awards. Our favorite customers (you!) bring in their favorite projects (made with String Theory yarns, of course) for viewing and voting.  There are refreshments and prizes and Red Carpet interviews (because we just have to ask, “what are you wearing?” and “what was it like working with…?”).

Whether you enter to win an award or just come for the inspiration, we hope you will join us

Voting Begins at Noon (vote early, vote often)

Voting is done by the Academy — which consists of every person walking into String Theory Yarn Company on Sunday February 26 — (yes children, spouses, grandparents, friends, etc. may vote). Even though we are located near Chicago, we are requesting that you fill out just one ballot per person.

Votes are tabulated at 3:30 PM (when the voting closes) and winners are announced as soon as we can tabulate the votes. You do NOT have to be present to win, but we hope you will be. There are amazing prizes for each category, including a $25 String Theory Gift Certificate for Best in Show.

Every year this event is a blast! Check out the winners from 2015.

Red Carpet Interviews at 2:00pm

Half the fun of the Academy Awards are the interviews on the red carpet.

So even if you don’t want to enter for an award, we hope you’ll let us interview you about what you are wearing. All knitwear has a story.

If you have entered, we will give you a moment to grab your item from its display and tell your raving fans what it was like to make it. (This is also a great time to sway some voters!)

Enter Now to Win

Prizes are awarded in the following categories:

Best Accessory (hat, mitten, bag, socks)
Best Sweater
Best Scarf/Cowl
Best Shawl/Wrap
Best Baby/Child item
Best Home Item (blanket, pillow, etc.)
Best Crocheted item
Best of Show

  2. All entries must be made with yarn available at String Theory. (People are going to want to make what you made and we want them to be able to buy the yarn at String Theory.)

Top Five Reasons Not to Buy Yarn http://www.stringtheoryyarncompany.com/whats-new/top-five-reasons-not-buy-yarn/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=top-five-reasons-not-buy-yarn http://www.stringtheoryyarncompany.com/whats-new/top-five-reasons-not-buy-yarn/#respond Fri, 06 Jan 2017 16:52:02 +0000 http://stringtheoryyarncompany.com/?p=10261 String Theory Yarn Company

1. I don’t like to buy yarn without a project in mind.
No worries. We have sample projects knit up in almost every sale yarn and plenty of ideas for those that we don’t.
2. My stash is already overflowing.
Did you know that wool is a great insulator? Pile it up in your coldest room.
3. I have to finish my current project first.
I know that some of you buy yarn, make a project, finish and then buy more. I admire the discipline that this takes. However, you are going to miss out on some really good deals. I suggest instead that you buy sale yarn, clearly indicate the project it is intended for and then assign it a number in your queue. #1 the shawl for your sister, #2 the hat for your nephew, #3 the slippers for yourself…
4. I’m not good enough yet to buy good yarn.
Yes you are! Yarn unravels and every project can be as perfect as you want it to be. Also, beautiful yarn turns the simplest projects into works of art.
5. I simply don’t need anymore.
You are right. If adding to your stash does not bring you joy, don’t do it. But I bet you have a friend that could use a knitting care package or a birthday gift. How about a beautiful skein of Handmaiden sock yarn, some dpns, and a cute tool bag to keep organized? Or a couple of skeins of Extra to make a shawl and include a Jul closure? A new knitter would love a cute project bag and a knitting book. All these things are on sale now. Wouldn’t it be nice to have these gifts all lined up for the appropriate moment?

This is how we keep the doors open, the knitters around the table and the advice flowing. This how we are able to support women’s cooperatives, sustainable farming in the Patagonia Grasslands, independent artists, and more. You make that possible. Thank you.

In honor of Small Business Saturday, I decided to create a video about how the business of String Theory got started. I feel so lucky to have come through of a dark time with a new purpose in life. My hope is that my story might inspire someone else to do the same.

aa_dsc2219

The idea of making a video was a little nerve wracking, but LeMN Media (another small business)  made the process a lot of fun.  I think they did a great job. Take a look. I hope you like it.

Here are twelve gifts that you can make and still have time to enjoy the holidays. 

We hope you will stop by String Theory to see the samples in person and let us help you pick the perfect yarn.

This year give handmade from the heart

qg1-embrace-the-chill

Embrace the Chill Scarf  
Three balls of yarn, US size 35 needles and a couple of evenings and you’ll have a gift that looks like it was borrowed from the runway. Click here for a printable copy of the pattern.

qg2-caracol-cowl
Caracol Cowl
Two contrasting skeins of Malabrio Caracol, US size 15 sixteen inch circular needles and a couple of evenings and you’ll have a gift. This one is so easy, we don’t even have a pattern.

Instructions:
With color A, cast on 51 stitches. Join in the round.
K1, P1 for 7 inches.
Drop color A.
With color B continue to K1, P1 for 3 more inches.
Bind off loosely. Weave in ends. Enjoy!

Make a second cowl, reversing color A and color B. Or check back in tomorrow, to see what else you can make with the leftovers.

qg3-bulky-mittens

Super Bulky Mittens
This free pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple works beautifully with Malabrigo Caracol yarn. The only changes I made were to use two colors and to work 9 rounds for the cuff.

qg4-tilly-hat

I made the Tilly hat last January, when Ann Weaver challenged me to join in on the knitalong. I remember telling her that I definitely didn’t have time. She said she didn’t either. So we both cast on.

The hat was quick and easy and FUN. You can add the embellishment or not. Check out the Ravelry project page or the knitalong group for inspiration.

qg5-fidra-hat
Fidra Hat
More people chose Arranmore for NaKniSweMo than any other yarn. But it isn’t just great for sweaters. It also makes awesome accessories. Fidra will work up in a few evenings. I love that the yarn comes in neutrals for your more conservative friends and bright colors for those that want a pop of color with their black coat.

qg6-silky-scarf

Silky Scarf

This is the perfect gift for your knitworthy friend that doesn’t wear wool or spends the winter in warmer climates. The finished scarf has beautiful drape. It “shakes out” into a shawl to protect shoulders from air conditioning and scrunches up effortlessly for a little something around your neck.

There are so many beautiful color combinations, it will be easy to match their favorite colors.

Instructions:
With US size 13 needles, using one strand of Risoni and one strand of Fusilli, cast on 60 stitches.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have a two yards left. Bind off loosely.
qg7-cozy-mitten
Cozy Mitten
I love making my own mittens, because I can knit them to fit perfectly.

If you look at a ball of Canoe, it is hard to picture what it will look like knit up. Knit snug on US#9 needles it is perfect for cozy mittens or a hat. However, Canoe also performs beautifully on size 11 needles for a quick knit cowl.

I picked two of the more traditional colors, but we also have pink, green, purple….

qg8-shimmer-scarf
Shimmer Scarf 
We had a lot of people ask for a scarf to go with the popular Chunky Dean Street Hat by Nina Machlin Dayton.  This scarf uses the same Right Front Cross stitch and adds a two-stitch i-cord to each side.  Added bonus: the stitch pattern is beautifully reversible.

My most recent version of this scarf is knit in Knitted Wit’s Victory DK held with Shibui Silk Cloud. The colors are very similar, providing a richness not achieved by a single strand. You can also combine colors next to each other on the color wheel (orange/red, blue/purple green/yellow) for an irridescent look.

I used one skein of both for a scarf that is about 3.5 feet long. It works to tie it loosely around your neck. Or sew the ends together to create a cowl.

Remember, wool loves water. Give your scarf a good soak after it is complete. Your stitches will relax and increase in softness and drape.

qg9-cozy-head

Cozy Head, Happy Head by Joji Locatelli
I made the small size to see if I could squeek it out of one skein, but I couldn’t. Buy three skeins and you can make two large hats.

There was yarn left over to make a pom pom, but I couldn’t resist topping it with one of these fur pom poms that we just got in.  The hardest part was choosing the color.

qg10-spa-cloth
Spa Cloth
Gift a washcloth with a special bar of soap to a stressed out friend.

Materials:   one skein of Universal Flax (the more you wash it the better it feels)

Size #6 straight needle

Instructions:

Cast on 50 stitches (or a multiple of 4 plus 2)

Row 1: (RS): K2, *P2, K2; rep from * to end

Row 2: P2, *K2, P2; rep from * to end

Row 3: Knit

Row 4: Purl

Row 5: Repeat Row 1

Row 6: Repeat Row 2

Row 7: Purl

Row 8: Knit

Repeat rows 1 – 8 nine times ending with Row 6.

Bind off.  Weave in ends.

qg11-welted-fingerless-gloves
Welted Fingerless Gloves
When you pick up a skein of Amano Mayu ( a luxurious blend of alpaca, cashmere and silk) it is really hard to put it down. So I decided that the first thing I wanted to make was a pair of fingerless gloves.

I’ve made a lot of fingerless gloves in the past 10 years, but the pattern I go to over and over again is the Welted Fingerless Gloves by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. This is a clever and comfortable design.

You can decorate the cuffs with a single large button, mismatched tiny ones or any other combination. I thought this particular pair deserved some of the vintage buttons I’ve had my eye on.

We have three different yarns from the Amano alpaca collection. Read more about them on our blog.

qg12-drop-stitch-cable-scarf

Drop Stitch Cable Scarf (stop by String Theory for free pattern)
This scarf is made with Knit Collage’s appropriately named Spun Cloud yarn. It is so soft with a little bit of sparkle.

The pattern calls for two skeins, but I just used one and it seems long enough. Use your other skein to make a pair of mittens or a hat.
