2.21.13 Shop Update Preview

Hi friends! Sorry about missing Monday’s update preview post… I got caught up in dyeing and almost missed getting the update done on time!

Here is today’s 2pmET shop update preview:

2.21.13 Shop Update

2.21.13 Shop Update

Included in this update in the top-right corner is a colorway I’m bringing back after not dyeing it for a long time. It’s a lovely semisolid blue-gray called Smokin’ Barrel, and is the perfect unisex color. Today’s it’s available on Touring DK, but it will be showing up on other bases very soon. In the bottom middle is a colorway I just brought back on Monday, called September Sky. It’s mostly white with little blips of bright clear blue. I think it will be especially beautiful knit up. It is going up on Aran weight today, but there are two skeins of Weekend Sock in the same colorway already up in the shop if you’re interested.

I also wanted to call your attention to the Repeatable Colorways pages on the blog, linked right under the blog header. I have been adding lots of colorways lately, so if you haven’t checked it out in a few weeks, please take a look! I have 3 more colorways drying right now as well, and those will be going up in the pages this weekend. Right now I have about 30-40 more colorways to dye, rehank, and photograph, and then I’ll have my existing colorways all available for you to look through. And of course, I’ve got lots of ideas for new colorways too, so those will be added as I dye them. I hope you guys enjoy looking through what I’ve done so far! As always, if you’re interested in ordering any of them as a custom order, please feel free to contact me through the shop!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for your support!

Tennessee Iris Preorders Now Available!!

Hi everybody! I wanted to tell you about a new collaboration that I’m involved in! Daniela (aka Caffeinated Gert of the Caffeinated Knitting Podcast) and I have embarked on a new venture and I am very excited about it! I have dyed up a very special colorway for her newest pattern, Tennessee Twister, and there will be a KAL (knitalong) starting April 17! This colorway is going to be exclusive to this knitalong through the end of July, so if you like it, you  might want to grab a skein now!

"Tennesee Iris" on Journey Sock, Voyage Aran, and Touring DK

“Tennesee Iris” on Journey Sock, Voyage Aran, and Touring DK

This colorway is available on Journey Sock (30 skeins available), Voyage Aran (20 skeins available), and Touring DK (20 skeins available), today through March 9. I will ship the skeins as I get them dyed and rehanked, but they will definitely all be shipped by March 29 so that you have time to get them in the mail before the KAL starts. Daniela will also be releasing patterns for a hat and socks with the same motif between now and the start of the KAL, so you can knit whichever pattern suits your fancy!

I hope you guys love it, and thanks so much for your continued support! See you tomorrow night with the regular shop update preview!

2.14.13 Shop Update and a NEW FIBER!!

Hello everyone! I had to bump today’s 2pmET shop update to 3pmET because of a doctor’s appointment that ran over, but I hope you’ll forgive me! I tried to make it a big update to make up for my tardiness.

I am also debuting a new fiber base today, Portuguese Merino! This is the most economical base I carry, at $15 for 4oz. It is not as soft and silky as regular merino, but still has a really nice hand and is very poofy! You should give it a try! 🙂 It would be especially great for new spinners, as it is a bit “grabbier” than regular merino, but is not as coarse as Corriedale. Also I feel like I should warn everyone, this fiber has a bit more veggie matter in it than my normal fibers do; it comes that way from the mill. It isn’t as excessive as farm wool is, though, so you shouldn’t have any problem picking it out while you spin. I hope you’ll give this new fiber a try- I think you’ll like it as much as I do!

Good afternoon friends! I hope today finds you well. I have been busy as a bee trying to get the February club dyed up and some new batts made, so the next few shop updates might be kinda small.

Regardless, I think today’s update has some special things in it! Here is the preview:
