As you likely know by now, Knitty loves Patreon. It allows our readers to support us, and they are doing just that! So we were thrilled to hear that our friends at Sweet Georgia Yarns have started up a Patreon themselves! Says owner Felicia Lo, “I’m building an online school for craft and colour where I’m making video-based craft workshops on fibre arts topics like dyeing wool yarns and fibres, dyeing cellulose yarns, natural dyeing, hand-painting warps for weaving, spinning intentional yarns for socks or shawls, and working with colour in knitting, and so much more.”
That sounds way cool, Felicia. And right up our alley!
Speaking of Knitty’s Patreon, I announced a new feature yesterday: Knitty Ninja Surprise Packages! And our Patrons are pretty excited about it! Read more here.
This is a little crazypants: a cross between a knitting machine and a 3d printer? That’s what it seems to be! Meet Kniterate. You could have grabbed one of these babies for $4500 during their Kickstarter, but it ended in March. The regular price is is $7500. Delivery is a year from now…it’ll be interesting to see if this product takes off.
