July 12 Update

Hey everybody! I have some beautiful things going up in today’s 1pmET shop update….

Update July 12

Top: “Pure Imagination” on Rendezvous Sport (also available on Journey Sock), Middle: “Amalfi At Night” on Rendezvous Sport, Bottom: “Strut Your Stuff” on Journey Sock (also available on Honeymoon Sock)

Top and bottom are brand new colorways available on 2 different bases each, and the middle colorway is a re-release that I haven’t dyed in a long time! All listings are currently available to be viewed in preview mode in the shop, and will be available for purchase at 1pmET.

 

 

Also going up today, but in my Pampered Nails By Dana Facebook Group, is the Hawaiian Half Light You Nailed It! Kit!

fullsizeoutput_14c8

The idea for these kits was born when I realized just how often I see posts on Instagram by knitters and crocheters, where they are showing that their project matches their nails. With this kit, you can have that happen for up to 14 days! 😉 The Hawaiian Half Light design is brand new for Summer 2018, and when I saw it I knew it needed to be represented in yarn form too!

The price of the kit is $47 including US shipping (please note that these cannot be shipped out of the US, so they are only open to US residents).
In this kit:
(1) set of Color Street nail polish strips in Hawaiian Half Light
(1) skein of Unwind Yarn Company Twinkle Sock Yarn in Hawaiian Half Light (75% superwash merino/20% nylon/5% stellina sparkle, 438yds/100g, hand wash/dry flat)

There are 4 kits available in this round. To have a chance of getting one, you need to be a member of my Facebook group. Click the link above to get to the group, and request to join. I’ll be sure to check the member requests before putting the kit post live at 1pmET so anyone who wants one has a chance. If there is a lot of demand, I am amenable to making more kits too!

Here’s a pic of the nail strips on my own nails, with the yarn:

And of course, a swatch of the yarn:

Thanks so much for your continued support! 🙂

June 28 Shop Update

Hello everyone! As I’ve been listing quite a bit of yarn lately, I decided to do something fun and different today… I’ve listed more fun yarn bowls, and a brand new product for me: spinning project bags!

3 Brand New Yarn Bowls Listed Today!

Brand New Today: Spinning Project Bags!

The project bags are really unique and fun. Whenever I take my spinning wheel or spindle out of the house, I’m always torn on what to do with my fiber. I don’t want to keep crushing it into a plastic bag, and I think my fiber gets a little jealous of all of my pretty knitting project bags! This style of bag was born from the need to have a stylish and practical way to carry spinning fiber. It is lined with satin so your fiber doesn’t get felted or stuck all over the inside of the bag, and has 3 kam snaps as closures across the top so you don’t have to deal with fiber getting stuck in a zipper or fiddle with a drawstring. It even has a handy wrist strap if you want to walk and spin on your spindle simultaneously!

For more information on these beauties, check out the shop! All items are now available for purchase!

April 26 Shop Update

Hi everyone!

After a VERY busy few weeks, I’m doing a shop update tomorrow!

I vended the Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival in Townsend TN this past weekend, and created a beautiful new colorway that premiered at the show. Meet “Overhead Sidewalks”:
fullsizeoutput_1171

This colorway was based on a picture of my hometown’s downtown, and its distinctive overhead sidewalks- the only ones in the Western Hemisphere!
fullsizeoutput_10a7

This colorway will be available on Journey Sock, Twinkle Sock, Luxe Sock, and Touring DK in limited quantities. As it is a truly unique yarn, each skein is a little different. Please allow for artistic license!

I am also listing these two beautiful lots of Touring DK:

April 26

Top: In Dreams, Bottom: Earth

I have a few announcements to make as well.

  • I recently finished a wonderful wholesale order for Stitch Supply Company, based out of Altoona WI! I was honored to get to dye a set of 14 colorways based on Tula Pink’s new All Stars fabric collection, and these yarns will be available on the Stitch Supply Company website soon!
  • I am currently working on a “refill” wholesale order for Needlepoint Junction in Hilton Head Island, SC. They have a beautiful exclusive colorway from me that you should really try to go see, if you’re planning to visit the SC coast this year! Michele and her staff are really wonderful people and their shop is so nice!
  • I am scheduled to be a part of the Worldwide Knit In Public Day celebrations at the new Kudzu Cottage shop in Pikeville TN on June 9. I will be bringing a selection of Unwind with me, as well as debuting a brand new custom colorway I am creating for Kudzu Cottage!

 

As always, you can find the shop here, and the update will be live at 1pmET! Thank you for your continued support! 🙂

January 25 Shop Update

Hi folks!

Well we had some crazy weather last week, so I ended up not being able to get any work done due to not having any child care. I did get a shop update put up on Saturday, but I think it got lost in the shuffle of the weekend… so here’s a reminder of the beauties I listed!

309D2EAF-F0C6-4634-8205-CD3E20A91169

Top: “Love Note” on Rendezvous Sport, “Auld Lang Syne” on Rendezvous Sport; Middle: “Goldenrod” on Outing Bulky, “Bruise” on Holiday Worsted; Bottom: “Succulence” on Outing Bulky, “Succulence” on Holiday Worsted

 

So now for this week’s update… a few old favorites, and one brand new colorway!

Top: “Grand Budapest” on Journey Sock, “Birth Of Venus” on Journey Sock; Middle: “Dirty Martini” on Outing Bulky, “Everyone’s A Unicorn” on Honeymoon Sock; Bottom: “Bonnie Wee Thing” on Journey Sock, “A Good Place” on Journey Sock

As per usual, the update will go live at 1pmET tomorrow (1/25).

January 11 Update

Hi folks!

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…

Jan11Update

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…

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!

XO-

August 17 Shop Update

Hi folks!

My shop updates are a bit sporadic right now, as my husband is out of the country for work and I’m single parenting. 🙂

I divided my time since the last update between the Unwind Yarn Company shop, and my Unwind In Stitches Etsy shop, and am doing updates in both today.

First, the yarn portion, which is going up in the Unwind Yarn Company shop:

August 17 UYC

Top Row: Mariposa on Touring DK, Earth on Touring DK; Bottom Row: O’Bannon on Touring DK, In Dreams on Touring DK

As you can see, all the listings going up this week are on Touring DK (which happens to be my favorite non-fingering-weight base). All four of these colorways have at least two skeins available; In Dreams (bottom right) has 4, so you could easily get a short-sleeved sweater out of it! They will be available at 2pmET for purchase.

In my newly revamped Unwind In Stitches Etsy shop, I am focusing on sewn items and small gifts. This week, I have listed some knitting project bags, pincushions, and pencil bags:

August 17 UIS

All of these items are priced perfectly for gift giving, or as a small treat for yourself. They are all currently listed and available for purchase. Be sure to check the Etsy shop often, as I likely won’t be doing scheduled updates in it, but will be listing items as I finish them.

Thanks so much for checking out my updates, and I hope you see something you love!
