Hobby Lobby just released some new yarn designs - unsurprisingly they stole designs by a few different indie dyers, including lemonade shop, who’s been working on her speckled designs and rainbow splash color runs for a while (lemonade shop yarn is left, hobby lobby is right) :

She’s not the only designer they’ve stolen unique fiber patterns from, and the indie dyer community is reaching out to a few more dyers with very singular designs that hobby lobby has also taken, so I’ll try to update the list as I can.
Stolen art is stolen livelihood. Please support artists, small time crafters and creators as you can, and if you recognize someone else’s yarn in the hobby lobby release, be sure to include them and a link to their store. There isn’t much else that they can do to fight this unfortunately.

people on tumblr tend to be pretty good about the whole “you should pay artists thing” but i just want to put out there: that includes fibre artists
i can’t count the number of times i’ve been knitting or embroidering something and someone is like “oh can you make me one?” and then they get offended when i tell them they’d have to pay me.
real talk: nice yarn/wool is expensive. sewing machines are expensive. for every handmade skirt or stuffed animal you see online there are at least a half-dozen prototypes in the creator’s closet that can’t be sold.
and that’s not even getting into the time spent on these projects. i have some things i’ve probably spent in excess of 100 hours on. i can’t even fathom making a living wage knitting stuff, because nobody would ever pay that much.
tl:dr; fibre artists deserve to be paid for their time and skill just like visual artists and if you can “buy something just like that at walmart for $5″ please just do that and stop wasting our time

People often look at the tags on my handmade goods and declare that my prices are outrageous. I did the math and THIS is what that handmade beanie you want for $10 ACTUALLY cost to make.
So if you see that $30 on the label, be courteous. Know that I am paying myself far, far less than minimum wage in labor ($2.22 per hour, to be exact) to even come to such a supposedly ghastly price. I can't take that $10 for a hat because no one can live on $0.37 an hour, much less sustain a business.
Handmade goods aren't overpriced, people just undervalue the hard work and years of skill artists put into them.

just because this deserves its own post:
dressmakers, tailors, cosplayers, historical costumers, and generally any people who sew are artists
people who work with fiber (knitting, crocheting, etc.) are artists
embroiderers are artists
weavers are artists
lacemakers are artists
shoemakers are artists
leatherworkers are artists
textile, clothing, and fiber arts are still art forms, even though they’ve historically been devalued in many societies
credit. all. artists.

Not the best pictures in the world, but I finished a design by @shitpostsampler (Had to modify it for a round frame but hey)

Also if you are in Canada, Espace Tricot is owned by a black woman as well although many may not have known. A lot of the yarn companies are indie dyers so please support them especially since a lot of yarn festivals were canceled due to COVID-19

DIY Knit Snake Scarf Free Pattern
This is my attempt at a realistic Pseudonaja affinis, an elapid snake common in Western Australia. This was a requested design by a herpetologist studying these snakes for her PhD. The color Sequoia looks the most realistic for this snake which is sometimes called a Spotted Brown Snake
The 12 inch tail is knit like cord starting with very small needles. Most of the snake is stockinette worked back and forth. The head is knit in the round and requires a little hand sewing with a scrap of some non-fraying fabric similar in color to your yarn. You need some polyfill and eyes. I also added a patch of leather inside the head for shaping.
Knit this Snake Scarf by Barbara Tomlinson from Beachton.com. Find the PDF pattern on her website here, or on Ravelry here.

When the knitting social media site, Ravelry, is the only social media site with the balls to do what’s right....

Normally I’m very good at suspension of disbelief but I cannot get over the sisters and nurses of Call the Midwife somehow knitting what is clearly a crocheted baby blanket.
