Wanderlust Worsted and Voyage Aran Label Corrections

Hey everybody!

I’m writing to you this morning with a bit of egg on my face.

It was just pointed out to me that the Wanderlust Worsted and Voyage Aran labels have the words “machine or hand wash” on the care instructions. These yarns are NON-superwash and cannot be machine washed or they will felt. I apologize for any confusion if you saw that.

Thanks so much for your continued support! 🙂

10.16.13 Shop Update

Hi friends!  I appreciate your patience when I didn’t do a shop update yesterday. A couple of days ago I hurt my elbow pretty bad, and it has put a definite hamper on both my show prep for SAFF and my regular shop work.

Here is today’s shop update preview. The update will go live at 4pmET.

10.16.13 Shop Update

Making their re-entry into the shop today are four braids of a delicious 50% merino/50% yak down fiber blend. This blend is one of my favorites and is definitely the most luxurious blend I carry in my line. Believe me when I tell you: it is soft as a little kitten and an absolute joy to spin. You should definitely treat yourself to a braid of this luxurious fiber!

There will be no shop update next week, as I’ll be finishing up my SAFF preparations, but the week after (10/29) there will be a HUGE update!!

Thanks again for all of your support, and if you’re going to be at SAFF this year, please be sure to stop by and visit me! I’m in booth 13 in the Sales Barn!

10.8.13 Shop Update

Hi friends!

I’m posting this a little early today because I’m not feeling well. The change in seasons is really aggravating my fibromyalgia this year, so I’m taking some much-needed time off from dyeing today to relax and hopefully recuperate somewhat.

Here is today’s shop update preview… as always, going live at 4pmET over at the shop.

10.8.13 Shop Update

10.8.13 Shop Update

The yarns today are: (top row) Broken Arrow on Twinkle Sock, OH DEER on Twinkle Sock, Fidelity on Weekend Sock (these have white spots so they’re marked down too!)

(bottom row) Goldenrod on Wanderlust Worsted (this is a sweater quantity, and I am knitting a Que Sera cardi out of this exact yarn right now! it is GORGEOUS), Cerulean on Weekend Sock, and Evergreen on Twinkle Sock.

I hope you see something you love, and thanks so much for your support of the shop!

10.1.13 Shop Update

Hi friends!

 

Once again I’m running late… trying to do too much on shop update days seems to do that to me every time!

 

Anyways, what you’re here for is to see the update preview, so here ya go:

10.1.13 Yarns

10.1.13 Yarns

Today’s yarns include a set of Faded Graffiti skeins (top left, middle of middle row, and left and right sides of bottom row). The other yarns are as follows: top middle is Arabian Nights, top right is Teen Wolf, middle left is Family Vacation 1960, middle right is Broken Arrow (more on this one in a few), and middle bottom is Birth of Venus.

10.1.13 Fibers

10.1.13 Fibers

Today’s fibers include: top left and bottom middle are Pure Gold on Polwarth/Silk, middle left and top right are Il Cielo on Superwash BFL/Nylon, bottom left and middle right are Teeny Bikini on Polwarth/Silk, and middle top and bottom right are Laura Loves Unwind on Polwarth/Silk.

 

You guys have seen all of these colorways before except for this one:

"Broken Arrow" on Journey Sock

“Broken Arrow” on Journey Sock

This is a new colorway in my new Easy Listening colorway series, and is named after the Rod Stewart song of the same name (which happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time). It is a really interesting colorway, and one I am very proud of. It has a silver base, and has been overdyed with shades of gold and orange in a light splatter/speckle pattern. It is a very unisex colorway (my husband happens to love it!) and would translate well into larger and smaller projects alike. It is now available for special order for larger quantities if you want it. 🙂

 

I also wanted to make you all aware that signups for Round 6 of the 2 Crafty Girls Yarn Club are now open, through October 14. This round will be for November and December 2013, and will feature a shipment from me in November, and a shipment from Another Crafty Girl in December. The theme is still Art History, and the cost is $55.50 for US membership and $74 for an international membership. That price includes 2 skeins of 80% superwash merino/20% nylon sock yarn (400yds/100g), 2 inspirational artwork postcards, and shipping for both months. There are 40 spots available, and they will be chosen by Random Number Generator. We will be billing on or by October 16, and all invoices must be paid by October 31. If you’re interested in joining, we’d love to have you! You can find the link to the signup form in this Ravelry post.

 

One other thing I wanted to address today, since it seems to be coming up a lot in the new shop: you must have cookies enabled in your browser for my shop or you will be unable to check out. It will keep telling you that something is invalid (be it name, address, etc.) and will eventually remove whatever you were attempting to purchase from your cart and put it back in the shop. I know it’s inconvenient, but as my shop is hosted by Big Cartel, this is the way their site works and I can’t change it. Enabling cookies on a site-specific basis (for my site in particular) will alleviate this problem. Thanks for your understanding!!

 

I hope you all have a great week! See you next week!
