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.

Vacation Notice: I will be in Sicily from May 15 through May 29th (don’t worry, a housesitter will be living here while I’m gone, taking care of Mason). This means that orders placed during this period will not be mailed out until June 1. I apologize for any inconvenience!
Welcome to Feral Knitter! I carry the full ranges of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift and Elemental Affects Fingering Weight Shetland yarns for Fair Isle knitting—and beyond. 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!
