2017 has definitely been the year of the indie dyer. Every day it seems I find new indie yarn dyers I want to try as they post drool-worthy photos on Instagram. The Grocery Girls Podcast also doesn't help with the enabling factor. I've decided to make a list of all my favorite yarn dyers and who I'm dying to try! (See what I did there?)

Just released today! You can now purchase my Stone Arch Shawl on Ravelry! I am in love with the simplicity of the design, yet it keeps your interest with the color changes and lace sections. So grab your two favorite skeins of sock yarn and get started!
Stay tuned for a KAL coming up with some awesome yarn dyers!
One of my big goals for Leo's Lovely Treasures has been to branch out on my pattern designing. As much as I love designing baby knits, a dream of mine has always been to design a summer shawl. I was inspired one of my favorite places; the beach near my home. The stone arch sign is a welcoming touch that I've always loved.
This lightweight, airy shawl uses two skeins of sock yarn with edges mimicking the arched sign. It's an asymmetrical shawl that blends two colors together in the middle section. Two contrasting colors make for a sharp contrast, where a speckled skein with a matching semisolid would create an awesome blending effect.
Pattern will be available for purchase the end of this month!
Keep an eye out for an awesome collaboration with Yarn Cafe Creations this month!
When making this pattern, be sure to share on Ravelry as well as on Instagram using #stonearchshawl!
I'm a recent college graduate, living the dream day by day, and knitting as much as I can.
