Welcome to the Island of Misfit Skeins!
Every now and then there are skeins of yarn who get stuck on the island. Sometimes it's because their dye-bath siblings got bought for a sweater, and they were just not needed to make that specific garment. Other times they...

Demon Traps Everywhere
As I've mentioned in my previous blog, we've started working on our new studio. Most importantly, the walls are now painted (we mixed in some holy water with the paint) and we've busted our asses off this past week putting...
Our Studio is Haunted
TLDR: Our current studio is shit and we need to get out a.s.a.p. We have found a new location and since I don’t want to move all of the yarn and fibers, do me a favor and come buy some!...

August Inspiration:  Young Frankenstein Marty Feldman's Igor is probably one of the most memorable one in our 2019 line up. The chemistry he and Gene Wilder have is amazing and this movie will forever be one of my favorites.  The...

This beauty comes from the 80s and it shows. After a comet wipes out almost all of humanity, 2 valley girls join forces with a stranger to dodge both zombies and mad scientists. It’s a sad apocalyptic tale with enough...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH🧟 - Warm Bodies (2013)
Time for another romantic zombie movie with comedic elements. R, played by Nicholas Hoult, is a zombie, shambling his life away with his best zombie pal M.  They have a pretty monotonous thing going on, until R meets Julie, a still...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH🧟 - Night of the Living Dead (1968)
A lot of the films that I've been giving shout outs to this month have this (by now over 50 years old!) classic to thank. In '68 George Romero set out to make a zombie movie, which would deal with...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH 🧟 - Juan de los Muertos  (Juan of the Dead, 2011)⠀
Take Shawn of the Dead and move it over to Cuba. That's basically how you get this 2011 zombie comedy. Juan is a slacker and just one friend; Lazaro. They begin to notice that locals are "going crazy", killing people...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH🧟 - The Battery (2012)
Anyone who knows me, knows that if they ask me 'which movie should I watch' I will, without hesitation, name The Battery first. This micro-budget zombie movie (it was made with around $ 6000,-) is dear to my heart ever...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH 🧟 - Black Sheep (2006)

🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH 🧟 - House of the Dead (2003)
This 2003 monstrosity, directed by Uwe Boll, is glorious. The acting has more ham than an Italian deli, the editing makes no sense whatso-fucking-ever, the plot is non existent and this movie is probably one of the many, many reasons...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH 🧟 - Zombie (a.k.a. Zombi 2, 1979)
Zombi 2, directed by Lucio Fulci, (and titled Zombie in America) isn’t really a sequel to anything, but was marketed in Italy as a semi-sequel to George Romero‘s Dawn of the Dead (which was titled Zombi in Italy). Beyond spectacular...
🧟 ZOMBIE AWARENESS MONTH 🧟 - Train to Busan (2016)⠀
