I have some lovely yarns going up this week!
Top: Mariposa and Hints Of Spring, Middle: Aurora Borealis, Bottom: Abalone and Gracie Pearl; all on Journey Sock base
There are two of each of these beauties, except for Mariposa (just one skein). The shop update goes live at 1pmET, and I hope you’ll stop by and see what other lovely skeins are in the shop right now too!
I’ve been very busy getting ready to vend the Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival next month, from April 20-22 in Townsend TN. I’m thrilled to get to vend this new-to-me event, since I’ve only attended as a customer before. It is located just minutes from the park entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and is surrounded by the most beautiful views you’ve ever seen. If you’re fairly local, or feel like taking a trip, it’s a great time to visit the mountains too! You can find information on the festival here, and be sure to check out the class schedule too!
Today’s shop update is LIVE, and it also happens to be my 35th birthday today, so I have a coupon available for a very limited time!
Top to bottom: Day/Night, Overachiever, Social Climber, Echinacea, Source Code
Swatches of each of the new colorways… Clockwise from top: Source Code, Social Climber, Overachiever, Day/Night, Echinacea (center)
Use coupon code HAPPYBDAY for 15% off your $30 or more purchase from now through Sunday 3/11 at midnight ET (only good on ready-to-ship items, no custom orders).
This week’s update is extra special anyway, as I’m debuting 5 brand new colorways, all inspired by fabric designed by renowned fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. 3 of these were previously available at Anna Maria’s flagship store CraftSouth, but are now available directly from Unwind and on different bases! Each of these 5 colorways are available on 2 bases each, but will be available for custom order immediately as well.
Thanks for helping me celebrate, and for treating yourself a bit in the process! You can find the shop here!
Sorry for the radio silence last week. I have been really ill with a respiratory virus, and needed some time to recover. I’m now fairly well (still a little sick but not contagious) so I’m back to work! 🙂
This week I have 3 regular listings going up:
Top: “I Want It NOW” on Journey Sock, Middle: “Ladybug” on Journey Sock, Bottom: “Bali Mynah” on Journey Sock
I also listed the next two colorways in my Perfect Blenders series today:
Top: Perfect Dove, Bottom: Perfect Dusk
These are very basic shades of gray that go with SO many of my colorways:
Isn’t that awesome? So many options!! These Blenders are available on basically every base I dye, so no matter your project you’ll have lots of options! 🙂
The update goes live at 1pmET for the regular skeins, and the Blenders are already available for purchase.
One last notice… this past week, KinoKnits released the new Anna Karenina Shawl pattern, which calls for one skein of my Journey Sock in Mariposa.
Because this colorway is just SO perfect for this shawl, I opened a preorder for that exact yarn so folks could have an opportunity to get a discount on it. Enter code LEV15 at checkout and save 15% on the preorder for this yarn through midnight tonight (3/1)- there is no limit to the number of skeins you can purchase, if you’d like to order it for a sweater or some other larger project instead. The yarn is scheduled to ship out within 2 weeks.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you see something you need to add to your stash!
Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well on this first day of February. Is it just me or did January seem to last FOREVER??
Anyway, I have a small-but-mighty shop update to share today, and it will be going live in less than a half hour in the shop!
Top to bottom: Gracie Pearl on Luxe Sock, Duckie on Luxe Sock, La Grande Jatte on Journey Sock, Black Magic Woman on Twinkle Sock, La Grande Latte on Rendezvous Sport Sock.
Right now I’m feeling the soft-yet-saturated colorways, as you can tell. 🙂
I also wanted to let you guys know that there are 3 uses of a flash sale coupon available still… I post flash sales on Instagram (so if you aren’t following me there you should! @unwindyarncompany) and so far there are 3 uses still available! The next 3 people who use code FLASH25 at checkout will receive 25% off their in-stock yarn purchase! (custom orders are not included in this sale) If you try to use the code and it doesn’t work, well, sorry. 😉
Have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you next week with the next update preview!
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…
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…
Hi folks! It’s time for my last shop update of 2017… and I tried very hard to make it special!
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!
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!
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:
To save 20% on any purchase of $30 or more, use coupon code TURKEYSALE at checkout.
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!
