Entrechat KAL Sponsor: Kunibag

I first met Judit online when she came up with this incredibly stunning version of my Hyphen cardigan (click on image for the Ravelry project page): 

Stunning isn't it? I had never really thought of using knitting as a canvas for embroidery before! I had to find out more about her (she lives in Hamburg, not too far from me!) and I started following her on  social media.

Her creativity and eye for colors are just brilliant. She has a particular love for colorwork and I love just about everything she comes up with. Her Instagram feed is so inspiring, full of the most enticing photographs of wooly goodness. AND she doesn't just knit, she also spins and sews beautifully, and even sells THE coolest project bags  (she calls them Kunibags) online, in shops around Hamburg and at yarn festivals.

I am so delighted that she agreed to donate one Kunibag as a prize for our Entrechat KAL

One lucky winner will soon receive this beauty! I have to admit I'm a bit jealous ;)

I love the combination of fabrics she picked out, it's super elegant and modern, with a retro twist, don't you think?

Judit has been super busy lately in her studio and will soon open an Etsy shop. In the meantime, make sure you follow her on Instagram and Ravelry so you don't miss any of her beautiful creations. Thanks again Judit!

Entrechat KAL Sponsor: Unwind Yarn Company

Another one of our lovely indie dyer sponsors is Dana from the Unwind Yarn Company.

I've been following Dana on Instagram for a while now, and I love having that window into her day-to-day as an indie dyer and business owner, and seeing her adorable little girl grow. 

As an indie dyer, she comes up with absolutely wonderful colorways full of happy bright colors, which come in a wide variety of bases, from fingering to worsted weight. Each one of her colorways is inspired by something very personal, either a meaningful song, a memory, a photo... Dana also makes the cutest notion pouches and project bags in covetable fabrics. Be sure to check out her store! She really pours her heart and soul into her work, and with each new product she shares a bit of herself with the world.

Dana is also one of the organizer behind the Into The Wool Fiber Retreat, which has been taking place for the past four years and looks oh-so-heavenly. 

Are you curious to see the prize that Dana has prepared for our Entrechat KAL? It's the loveliest yarn and bag kit!

This fabric is just perfect, no? And how wonderful is this yarn!

Here are some more details:

The project bag is made from organic cotton print fabric with a white organic cotton lining. It measures approximately 11" wide x 7" tall with a 4" gusset.  It is interfaced with batting and is soft but will stand up on its own. It has a zipper top and coordinating colored stitching.

The yarn is Unwind Yarn Company's Round Trip Sock, a lovely high-twist super wash 100% merino single that blocks beautifully and shows stitch definition extremely well. It was dyed in Dana's repeatable colorway Black Magic Woman, a tonal pink with splashes of navy. The skein is 400yds/100g. Gauge: 7-8 sts = 1” on #1-3 needles. Hand or machine wash cool, lay flat to dry.

I am so excited on behalf of the lucky winner who will receive this wonderful kit! Want your own? You can find the Unwind Yarn Company here:
