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!

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!

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 7 Update

Hi folks!

 

Well it looks like this will be the last shop update until after Into The Wool, as my schedule has gotten pretty packed and I don’t want to stretch myself too thin. Luckily there are lots of lovelies already in the shop, plus these beauties going up at 1pmET:

September 7

Top: Bougainvillea on Journey Sock and Passionfruit Sangria on Touring DK; Middle: Peaceful Easy Feeling on Twinkle Sock and Arabian Nights on Rendezvous Sport Sock; Bottom: My Forgotten Favorite on Touring DK and Pop Your Collar on Journey Sock. 

To sweeten the pot a little bit, I’m extending a coupon code to the next 7 orders who use the code FAST20 at checkout. You’ll save 20% off your entire order (excluding custom orders), and this is available from the minute this post goes live until it’s been used 7 times. (you’ll know it’s not available if it says it isn’t valid when you enter it at checkout).

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you see something you love in the shop! Take care, and I’ll see you in a few weeks!

3.17.15 Shop Update and NEW Pattern Release!!

Hi everyone!

I’ve had an extremely busy beginning to this month, so this is the first shop update in a while. I’ve tried to make it really big and awesome for you though, so here is your preview…

Sock and Sportweight Yarns

There are two skeins each of the sock yarns, plus four skeins of the brand new colorway Gulf in sport, which is pictured in the upper right corner.

Fibers

Fibers

Today I have listed a pair each of every colorway, plus several braids of undyed gray merino and undyed swirl bfl, and a couple of panda spin your own socks kits. My fiber supply is dwindling (as is my ability to prepare fiber for dyeing) so I anticipate only 2-3 more updates will have fiber in them before I’m unable to dye any more to list.

Worsted Weight Sweater Quantities

I am really excited today, as the incomparable Amy Christoffers has just released her brand new sweater pattern Arborvitae, which is designed especially for my Wanderlust Worsted base.

This gorgeous sweater is an excellent shape to fit a variety of body types, and depending on the amount of ease desired, uses 2-3 skeins of this base. I am listing 9 sweater quantities today (8 colors total) with plans to restock in my 3/31 update. I am still not taking custom orders per se, but if there’s a colorway you absolutely can’t live without, please feel free to email me via the shop and I’ll see if I can get it dyed up for that update. (no reserve listings though, sorry!)

Also, I am the podcast sponsor for my podcast Just One More Row this month, so if you listen to episodes 103 and 104, there is a coupon code available for listeners that can be used on any coupon-eligible item in my shop through midnight ET on 3/31.

As always, thanks so much for your continued support of my shop, and I hope you see something you love in the update today!

End of Year SALE, Last Shop Update, and Announcements for 2015

Hi all!

 

Well it has definitely been a rollercoaster of a year! I appreciate you guys and how you’ve stuck with me more than I can easily express, and I want to wish every one of my customers a happy, healthy, and blessed holiday season and start of 2015!

 

I did want to tell you guys some important stuff today, so here goes:

  • The End of Year SALE starts at 12:01AM Eastern Time on Christmas Day (12/25), and coupon code ENDOFYEAR14 will save you 20% off  your entire coupon-eligible purchase (this is everything but the few remaining yarn-and-pattern kits, and Kookaburra wash). This is the single biggest sale I have all year, so this is a great time to buy those things you’ve been eyeing in the shop but haven’t “pulled the trigger” on yet.
  • The shop will close for inventory from January 1-6. I plan to leave the shop itself up, but make all listings either hidden or say “coming soon” as to not cause any confusion.
  • The shop will reopen on January 7, and the first shop update of 2015 will take place on January 13 at 4pmET.
  • The new shop update schedule for the first quarter of 2015 is available for you to look at in the sidebar. Please note that my shop updates are now further apart, as I’ll be super busy trying to dye 8 months worth of stock (and Into The Wool vendor stock) in just a 3 month period. I also need to take some time to enjoy being pregnant and preparing for my daughter’s arrival, as I’m sure you all understand!
  • As of right now I do not plan to reopen custom orders until I resume a full-time dye schedule sometime in the fall of 2015. I apologize if this makes anyone angry, but I don’t want to take on more than I can physically handle, and I also don’t want a ridiculously long wait for those that want to order.
  • I plan to begin dyeing my remaining stock of fiber right after the new year, and will release the dyed braids over a period of updates until they’re all gone. I will inventory what bases I have during the January 1-6 period, and will try to post here so you can see what will bases will be dyed. I will not be reordering any bases I do not currently have in stock, and plan to try to dye as many of my popular colorways as I can so there will be a good selection. I appreciate your understanding as I make this transition.
  • Unfortunately because materials costs have risen a lot this year, I will be forced to have a price increase in 2015. Fiber prices will stay the same due to the limited nature of my stock, but all yarns will be going up $1 in price. (Journey Sock and Honeymoon sock will go from $24/skein to $25/skein, etc.) This is necessary in order to continue to pay myself a living wage for the work I do, and I’m sure you all understand that. The great quality of Unwind handdyed yarns is worth paying for, isn’t it? 🙂

 

That’s pretty much all of the announcements I can think of right now! I will be doing an update sometime in the evening on Christmas Day (probably between 10pm-midnight Eastern) with these beauties:

12.25.14 Shop Update

12.25.14 Shop Update

They are all included in the sale as well, and are currently up in preview mode until they go live. I will be posting to Instagram and Twitter when they are live.

 

Again, thanks so much to ALL of you for your support in 2014. This has been both the hardest and most exciting year of my life, and I appreciate your sticking through it with me!

 

XO and blessings,

Dana

11.30.14 Cyber Monday UPDATE and SALE!!

Hi all!

 

Sorry I didn’t post Thursday’s big update… I ended up having to host Thanksgiving this year and I was absolutely exhausted, so I didn’t bother with mosaics. I made up for it tonight though, by having a huge update and having some mosaics to get you excited beforehand! All of these lovelies are up in preview mode and will be live for purchasing at 9pmET today.

11.30.14 Yarns

11.30.14 Yarns

11 30 14 Yarns and Fibers

11.30.13 Yarns and Fibers

These are not the only listings that are going up tonight… there are lots more, but I just wanted to showcase a few!

And as I always do, this weekend there is a 15% off coupon code for your shopping pleasure… use code TURKEY2014 at checkout to save on any coupon-eligible item! (basically everything is coupon-eligible except for yarn-and-pattern kits and Kookaburra wash) The coupon is good til midnight ET on 12/1, so you still have over 24 hours to use it!

 

I hope you see something you love! Thanks so much for your continued support!
