The Dreamer’s Shawl | April, 2018 Crochet Along

Anyone who crochets or knits knows that, aside from a great design, the yarn we use is the most important aspect of our craft. If it happens to come in the form of beautiful, hand dyed or hand plied yarn…well, that’s a huge treat! Meet Odessa, owner of Dreamers Yarn and inspiration for our next CAL.

Odessa made this piece using “pink fever.”  It is two dreamer’s shawls sewn together.  Instructions are included in the pattern.

 

 

Odessa has been creating and selling stunning yarn since May of 2016.  Originally from the Philippines, Odessa has lived in Connecticut for the past six years. It was her friends from the Philippines who introduced her to the idea of winding her own yarn. The thread that she uses is leftover from thread used to knit collars for men’s shirts. Odessa takes these leftovers, which come to her in all different colors, chooses a color scheme and winds them together to make her fingering yarn. Her cakes take about 3-5 minutes each to wind, but their beauty lasts a lifetime.

Perusing her products, you will see that she has a vast variety of colorways; from the magical “Delightful Unicorn” to the deep, dark “Midnight Dungeon.” It was Odessa’s “Pink Fever” that was used to design KMT Creations’ newest pattern, “The Dreamer’s Shawl.” So, where does Odessa get her ideas for these gorgeous color combos? Her customers—or, as she fondly refers to them–her friends.  In her words, “I feel like they are part of my life. Without them, there is no Dreamer’s Yarn.” It’s clear how much Odessa values her customers’ opinions. In one Facebook post, she presents a lovely pink and green cake and asks, “With sparkle or no???” The comments that follow are divided. Most like the idea of sparkles, but the vote is not unanimous.  So, Odessa simply decides “With and without wins!”  You can’t please everyone all the time…except maybe when you’re creating Dreamers Yarn.
