What Is a Feral Knitter?In 2003 I was setting up a Fair Isle color study sub-group of the Seattle Knitters Guild. A non-knitting friend, overhearing the discussion, asked me, apprehension thick in her voice, "Janine, WHAT is a feral knitter?" The name stuck. A feral knitter is someone who loves color knitting, playing with color combinations and garment shapes, and learning about construction and fit.

Plan ahead for shipping disruptions: I will be away April 21 – 30 and June 1 – 24th. Orders placed in these periods will be shipped the first working day after I return. I apologize for the inconvenience!
Welcome to Feral Knitter!
My book—The Joy of Color—is now available! It’s a step-by-step workshop in a book, teaching you how to design your own, unique garments. I carry the full ranges of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift and Elemental Affects Fingering Weight Shetland yarns for Fair Isle knitting (or whatever else your imagination conjures!). Here you will find patterns for Shetland yarn, my favorite color tools, recommendations for fly tying, information about my teaching schedule, and more.
Enjoy your knitting!
