January 11 Update

Hi folks!

I am excited to be back with the first update of 2018! I’ve been a busy little bee lately, creating a new colorway series (more on that in a minute) as well as a few new standalone colorways that are just GORGEOUS.

Going up today at 1pmET in the shop…

Jan11Update

Top Row L-R: Baby There’s A Shark In The Water, Auld Lang Syne, Lonely Hearts Club         Middle Row: Auld Lang Syne, Bird On A Wire, Lonely Hearts Club                                              Bottom Row: Queen Of Everything, Stained Glass Sock Blank, Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne and Baby There’s A Shark In The Water are brand new, and Lonely Hearts Club and Queen Of Everything were new in 2017. The sock blank is actually the 2017 Into The Wool colorway rendered on a blank, but as with all of my blanks it is a one of a kind.

Something new this week is a brand new colorway series. As I’m now a quilter AND a knitter, I’ve been thinking a lot about ways that both crafts intersect. In quilting, a “blender” is a fabric that reads as a single color and can be used to tie together more vibrant, variegated fabrics into a harmonious single project. I think it’s high time that we have that option in yarns too! So I have created my Perfect Blender Series to help out with that! 2 color shawls, “fade-style” projects, and speckled/variegated yarns often call out for a more semisolid option to go with them, so hopefully these new colorways will fill that need. I am starting out with 6 colorways, and will add onto these over the next few months. It is taking me a while to get the listings/blog page compiled as I am going through all of my dye formulas and populating a list of the colorways that they will easily go with, in case you don’t want to do the sleuthing yourself. 😉 There will be 2 colorways listed right at the update time today, and the rest will be added on as I have time over the next few days. These are going to be custom order listings and will take 3-4 weeks to ship after the order is placed (maximum), and will not be eligible for coupon codes (as none of my custom order listings are). To see the Perfect Blenders, visit the page linked under the blog header.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll swing by the shop as well! 🙂 Until next time…

December 14 Shop Update- Last One Of 2017!

Hi folks! It’s time for my last shop update of 2017… and I tried very hard to make it special!

Dec14Yarn
Several of these colorways have been in high demand lately, so don’t miss your chance to get one for yourself!

Also debuting today are my brand new yarn bowls!
YarnBowls
Made from durable clothesline and quilt-shop-quality cotton fabric (and one out of durable paracord), the bowls are flexible, lightweight and won’t scratch furniture like ceramic/pottery bowls can. They are also packable and can easily be reshaped with your hands after being stored flat. Due to their size, they are only available for shipping to the US by Priority Mail (sorry international folks!), but any yarn order placed along with a bowl order will all ship in the same box, so you will get your order much faster! Also, any order placed with Priority Shipping by December 19 will arrive before Christmas according to the USPS website. 🙂

As always, I am having an end-of-year sale… and this year the coupon code is MOONROOF and will save you 20% off any purchase in the shop (I’ve disabled custom order listings through the end of the year to give myself time to enjoy the holidays with my family). The code will expire at midnight ET on 12/31, so feel free to use it as many times as you want between now and then!

Thank you all so much for your support in 2017. It allows me to do what I love while still providing for my family, and I appreciate you so much! See you in 2018!

2017 Thanksgiving Weekend SALE and Shop Update!!

IMG_1139

Hi everyone! I just updated the shop with 12 new listings, and I wanted to share some information about my Thanksgiving weekend sale with you!

I’m doing a “Choose Your Own Adventure” sale this year, where you can choose what coupon you want! Now through Monday 11/27 at midnight ET, you can choose from the following options:

Option 1:
To save 20% on any purchase of $30 or more, use coupon code TURKEYSALE at checkout.

Option 2:
To get free shipping on any purchase of $100 or more, use coupon code TURKEYSHIP at checkout.

For international customers, the second option is definitely best, but you have the option of picking either one so you get the deal you want!

The fine print: you can only use one coupon, and both can only be used on coupon-eligible in-stock items. If you forget to enter the coupon at checkout, I can’t refund it after the fact, so be sure you’re entering it in the Coupon Code field before you pay. I will do my best to keep to my 2-3 business day ship time, but if I have a lot of orders it might be next Wednesday-Thursday before I can ship- if this is the case, I will email you.

Thank you for supporting a one-woman business and shopping small this holiday season!

November 9 Shop Update

Hi friends!

I hope all of you are doing well! I have been working on getting some new things ready for the shop, and can’t wait to share them with you next week!

But in the meantime, there is a big shop update going up tomorrow 11/9 at 1pmET. In this update are several pairs of skeins, several single skeins, and many many miniskein sets.

November 9

I hope you see something you love! Thank you for your continued support of my business!

October 12 Update

Hi folks!

Well the time has come… something I know at least a couple of people have been eagerly anticipating, especially since I hinted about it on Instagram a few days ago…

This update has SPINNING FIBER!!!

October 12 Fiber

Spinning fiber hasn’t been available in my shop since the end of 2014, so I hope everybody is excited to see this update! I do not plan to have fiber back in the shop regularly; basically I plan to dye fiber for in-person events only, and if anything is left after an event it will be made available in the shop. These beauties (and about 8 more not pictured) were dyed for the Into The Wool market, and didn’t find homes there. Well, the attendees’ loss is your gain! 🙂 I hope you find one that you want to give a good home to!

Also going up in this update are the leftover skeins of the 2017 Into The Wool yarn colorways, Without A Paddle and With A Paddle.

October 12

These colorways look beautiful when used together, but are equally gorgeous on their own. Both colorways are available on a variety of bases, and are available for custom order as well if there is a base not currently available you’d like to see it on.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll be at the shop at 1pmET for the update! Happy shopping!

October 5 Update: SINGLE-SKEIN SELLDOWN!!

Hi friends! I’m getting back into the swing of things a bit, and it feels good to be back on a normal schedule!

This week’s update is pretty awesome, and that’s because it’s time for another SINGLE SKEIN SELLDOWN!! All single skeins (aka without a mate) are 20% off with coupon SSS20 until they are all gone!

I came back from Into The Wool with a bunch of orphan skeins, so when you add those in with the orphan skeins already in the shop… there are a LOT to choose from! 25 listings, in fact! Here are the new listings that are going up at 1pmET tomorrow (10/5), and there are even more in the shop that were already listed!

Oct 5

October 5 Update- all Single Skeins, looking for homes!

Just click here for the Single Skein Selldown category in the shop– but don’t forget to check out the rest of the shop for other beauties! 🙂

Thanks for checking out my shop, and I hope you see something you want to give a good home to! 🙂 I’ll see you next week for the last shop update of the month!

September 28 Shop Update- SURPRISE, IT’S HALLOWEEN!!

Hi folks!

Well I am freshly returned from the Into The Wool Fiber Retreat, a knitting retreat I run in Crossville TN every September, and my heart is full of fun memories of spending 4 wonderful days with my tribe.

2017 Into The Wool Participants

One of the best parts of the retreat is the vendor market, where a carefully selected group of vendors have the opportunity to sell in a closed market setting to the attendees. I will brag on the vendors and say that they are always the cream of the crop, have unique wares, and make the attendees extremely happy. And of course, I vend too, since I don’t pay myself a salary for the coordination and organization of the retreat (I know, I’m crazy, but it’s necessary for business tax reasons), and I love every minute of my time vending there.

My table at this year’s market

I tried a new setup (the crates) and I absolutely LOVED it. I think the attendees enjoyed it too!

All of this to say, I always dye in lots of 4 or 8, so when I dyed up Halloween colorways this year, I set aside some for the retreat. When some didn’t sell at the event, I knew exactly what I was going to list in the shop in today’s shop update.

September 28 1pmET shop update

Today’s update features the beauties above, some in single skeins only, and some in pairs… plus one of the special edition miniskein sets, which won’t be repeated. The update goes live at 1pmET, but all listings are currently available for your perusal in preview mode. I hope you’ll take a look!

And if you’re interested in potentially attending the 2018 Into The Wool Fiber Retreat, be sure to check out our website (still a work in progress) and the Ravelry group for more information, as well as the hashtag #intothewoolfiberretreat2017 on Instagram for all of the photo fun from the weekend.

Take care, and I’ll see you next week!
