Giving Thanks

Thank you to Skacel, Makers' Mercantile, Oink Pigments, Paradise Fibers, SR Pepper Fiber Studio and Grandma's Spinning Wheel for providing ongoing support to The Chilly Dog!
November is a special month for me because it's when The Chilly Dog was "born". When I wrote my first blog post in November 2011, I had big dreams, but didn't know what to expect from this little venture. Although I now spend most days working alone in my studio, there are plenty of people and small businesses who made all of the video tutorials, patterns and social media content possible this year. For that, I give thanks!

First and foremost, I thank YOU for being a part of The Chilly Dog. Your views, likes, shares, comments and pattern purchases allow me to provide inspiration and instructional resources to knitters around the world and spend every day doing what I love. Thank you!

Line Drawing Socks KAL hosted by Makers' Mercantile and The Chilly Dog

Thank you to everyone at Skacel and their LYS Makers' Mercantile in Kent, WA, for continuing to provide yarn and needle support for the majority of my tutorials and designs. This year I also co-hosted a KAL with Makers' Mercantile. It was such a treat to design my Line Drawing Socks Pattern in their exclusive Zitron Art Deco Yarn and then work with their customers virtually during the KAL event in May.

Free Climber Socks Pattern designed by The Chilly Dog in Oink Pigments Yarn

Thank you to Oink Pigments for providing the yarn for my Free Climber Socks Pattern. Alexa, Helena and Julie, the clever and seemingly tireless trio behind the yarn, are a delight to work with. In addition to dyeing and managing their on-line storefront, they attend countless fiber festivals and trunk shows across the country. I do a little happy dance every time I see one of my socks in their show display pictures on social media.

1 Sock, 2 Sock, Red Sock, Blue Sock Pattern designed by The Chilly Dog - kits available at Paradise Fibers

Thanks to Paradise Fibers for creating a kit with my 1 Sock, 2 Sock, Red Sock, Blue Sock pattern. I love collaborating with yarn shops. Sock kits are available at the Paradise Fibers shop in Spokane, WA, and their website. (If red and blue aren't your colors, the staff has also curated kits with a variety of other color pairings.)

Custom dyed yarn by SR Pepper Fiber Studio

Thanks to my BFF (best fiber friend) Sandi at SR Pepper Fiber Studio. I can not tell you how many times she's been my sounding board, edited my writing, provided critical feedback, inspired me with her creativity or helped make one of my wonderfully, crazy ideas become a reality. It's also nice to have a friend who can custom dye yarn and fiber exactly the way you imagine.

2019 Sheep Thrills Fiber Retreat hosted by Grandma's Spinning Wheel

And finally, thanks to all my friends at Grandma's Spinning Wheel! With so much of my work done in the privacy of my studio, it's nice to have a real world place to knit, spin, teach, and share. The shop owners, Michael and Vicky, along with many of the regular customers, are the best fiber family a girl could ask for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
