July 27 Update

Hi folks!

After a very long hiatus, I’ve decided to attempt to start blogging again. I can’t guarantee any sort of regular schedule, but I’d like to try to give my customers more insight into the workings of Unwind, my creative process, and give proper accolades for projects made out of my yarns. πŸ™‚

Today I am doing a shop update at 2pmET, and these beauties are available to buy:

Top: A Good Place on Twinkle Sock; Middle: Shampoo Accident on Twinkle Sock; Bottom: Birth Of Venus on Luxe Sock

I’m sure longtime customers will remember Birth of Venus, as it’s been one of my most popular colorways since I dyed it for the 2 Crafty Girls club back in 2013. Indeed, it is one of the most beautiful, in my opinion, and knits up into fascinatingly complex projects.

The other two colorways are new today though, and one in particular bears a fun name I’d like to explain.

Top: Shampoo Accident, Bottom: A Good Place

As my friends could tell you if you asked them, I’m only borderline adventurous. I love my tattoos, and I’ve been known to dress crazy just to irritate my very taupe-loving husband.Β He is very simple and “Steady Eddie” in his appearance choices, and would rather I be the same. I, however, disagree and took his absence during his last work trip to South Korea to get my hair dyed in an ombre of pink, purple, and peach. I nervously waited for him to arrive home, thinking there would be some sort of blowup, but he said nothing until we went to bed that night. While lying there in bed, he said “um… did you know your hair is a weird color?” to which I put on a huge act of saying “WHAAAAAT? What do you MEAN?!” (like I had no clue) and he said “Well I thought maybe you’d had a shampoo accident and didn’t notice.” (I truly had no idea I was such a good actress. Apparently I missed an awesome career opportunity.) So there you have it! The story of the colorway name, and something I will tease him about until death do us part.

I hope you love these new colorways as much as I do, and take a look around the shop to see what else is new! πŸ™‚ As always you can find the shop at unwindyarncompany.com.

Best,
Dana
