The shoulder part of my #featherweather is done! Time for the handspun part 😍😍 #alexcreates

The #1 thing I get asked is how I get such vivid, saturated colors without it bleeding. It's easy - citric acid, professional dye, high heat, and a long exhaust. If you're experiencing bleeding and your ratios are correct, it's either a crappy dye or your tap water is fucking with the absorption. Try doing a batch with distilled water. Then do the same batch with a different manufacturers version of the same color. Fiber seen here is for @alexcreates and will be at his booth at Vogue Knitting Live in January #frostyarndyetutorial #indiedyer #handdyedfiber #alexcreates

Dyeing up the base for the 25 batts I'm making for @alexcreates to bring to Vogue Knitting Live in January. I've recently decided to switch over to all metric after 10 years of dyeing on the imperial system with volumetric ratios. This is just a little snapshot of the tutorials to come on YouTube. Huge shout-out to the people on Patreon who have financially backed me, be on the lookout for a message asking what you, specifically, want to see so I can put a timeline together of what to film! #patreon #fiberart #frostyarndyetutorial #indiedyer #handdyedfiber #handdyedyarn #artbatt #fiberbatt #alexcreates

@frostyarn is working her magic for my VKL booth!! I’m so fxckin excited to have these in my house... I mean booth to sell to you. Not hoard. 😅 #alexcreates #frostyarn #igspinners #artyarn #vklnyc2018

The first in a series of batts for @alexcreates for his booth at Vogue Knitting Live in January! These batts are 10 layers deep (4 wool and 6 texture and glitz). Based on Australian opals, the resulting yarn will have a rainbow Tweed with a holographic Rainbow reflect and 3 competing layers of shifting color. These can be stripped up and spun a variety of different ways, depending on how you want the finished yarn to look #artbatt #fiberbatt #indiedyer #handdyedfiber #fiberartist #artyarn #vogueknittinglive #alexcreates

Not to incite panic, but if you’ve been thinking of buying one of the GOTHAM NIGHTS knit kits, you’d better do it now — we only have TWO left! Thank you to everyone who purchased one so far — Michele, Alex and I cannot thank you enough for your support!

Lace progress. I started with a diamond lace pattern but the stitch definition wasn’t what I hoped for so I’ve frogged it and switched to a wave pattern. #loomknitlace #knitlace #knittinglace #lace #knitter #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #igknitters #loomknitter #loomknitting #loomknittersofinstagram #igloomknitters #yarnlove #yarnlove #ombresockduo #alexcreates #purplealpaca #greengoat

Already project planning with my new goodies. The two yarn cakes on top are ombré sock duo Wepa by @alexcreates and the large cake on bottom is @madelinetosh in Onyx. I’m trying out a new lace pattern and the sock due will highlight each end. (Also really unhappy it’s 5pm and pitch black out, I miss natural lighting☀️) #ombresockduo #alexcreates #madelinetosh #yarncake #yarn #yarnlove #knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitstagram #igknitters #loomknitter #shepherdess #purplealpaca #greengoat

It’s finally happened!!!! Todo as su tiempo 🙌🏽🙌🏽 I successfully sourced a replacement bulky yarn for my shop. My requirements were: US grown wool, bulky, soft but resilient and from a reliable source. Check. Check AND CHECK!!! The one on the left was my old base, the hank on the right is the one base headed to the must qualified alexcreates bulky yarn tester ever. She’s knitted the original base 100 times.... #alexcreates

Proper FO shot of my #verticesunite by @westknits. I mainly used my hand dyed yarn, I did the large size cuz I’m no one’s small 😂 #igknitters #alexcreates #westknitsarethebestknits
