A Chat with Erica from In The Deep Hue Sea

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 In honor of my love for indie dyers, each month I’ll be bringing you an inside look at the dyer behind the gloves! In my upcoming book, Knits That Rock: Volume 1, I’m designing each piece using an indie dyer that inspires me! This month, I’ve been knitting with the amazing yarn dyed by Erica Roberts, owner and dyer for In The Deep Hue Sea. Why am I using her yarn for my first project for the book indipill.com? Because it’s been sitting on my shelf staring at me and begging to be knit with while I finished other commissions! As I’m knitting on projects for clients, I stare at yarn and dream of what the alluring colors can become. It hit me one day and her Charcoal Rainbow set told me exactly what it wanted to be.

I truly embody the phrases “If I can’t take my yarn, I’m not going!” and “If I’m sitting, I’m knitting.” Of course, I’m also knitting if I’m standing in line, watching a rock band play, sitting on the 405 parking lot, and pretty much any other time when I have idle hands. My friends are now only surprised if they DON’T see me knitting! I have really supportive friends and family around me and they are always interested to know what I’m working on. When I got The Mindy Project gig, I had to be quiet about it for awhile, but once it was out in the open, everyone was so happy that my business was taking off pharmaciepourhomme.fr/.
