More than just a shop update

Dia duit, friend!

I’ve got a shop update happening this week — but not just this week! I’ve changed my update schedule to every week instead of every other week. This will give everyone an opportunity to snag what they love! For the next few weeks I’ve got some gorgeous colorways that are perfect for Autumn.

Additionally, in case you haven’t heard — I’m teaming up with 9 other AMAZING dyers to bring you the Indie Artist Yarn Collective mini kits! These gorgeous kits will have a mini skein from each dyer plus a beautiful matching project bag. There are two kits — Flick Faves, which has colorways inspired by each dyer’s favorite movie and Something Wicked, featuring spooky colorways from the wicked imagination of each dyer. One of my favorite movie is Steel Magnolias and I’ve always wanted to make a colorway like that armadillo cake! My wicked colorway is inspired by black cats and their haunting eyes. The dyers are Black Cat Fibers, Darn Yarn MN, Hulahut Yarns, Leon Alexander, Old Crow Art Yarns, SewhappyJane, Siren String Arts, Tinsel Factory, Wee Chickadee Woolery, and yours truly. You can buy your kit here and then join us in the Facebook group here.

And finally, have you heard of The Yarnpreneur Society? Not sure what a Yarnpreneur is? Well, if you have a business in the fiber industry then you’re a Yarnpreneur and need to join us! We’ll help you grow your passion from a hobby business to a thriving, sustainable business you can be proud of. Join us here!

Summer is finally coming to an end (thank goodness, I hate it! lol) and Autumn will be here soon! There will be Pumpkin Spice everything, gorgeous landscapes from Mother Nature, cool crisp evenings, and we won’t have to sweat under our latest WIP. I can’t wait!

Slán leat,
Melanie

Non-Mystery KAL

If you’d like to pace yourself with a KAL that comes out in clues but is not a mystery, Moroccan Magique is an excellent way to do this. The rectangular wrap with short rows consists of five colors. One clue is released per week over six weeks. At the end, there will be a “Lagalong” for those who like a low pressure approach. There is one prize per week and there will also be a Lagalong prize. Please visit my Ravelry group if you’d like to discuss colors or join in.

Introducing The Wooing of Isolde

Round Table Yarns is proud to introduce you to a new colorway: The Wooing of Isolde.

This icy light blue colorway will enchant you like the first perfect blue sky of spring or the eyes of the most beautiful girl in the world. It’s a cool, pastel blue with subtle streaks of silvery white for depth and intrigue. Once you get your hands on it you’ll never want to let it go, though you may be inspired to create something fit for an ice queen.

As with all of the colors from Round Table Yarns, there’s a story behind the name. This color name comes from the larger story of the love affair between Tristan and Isolde. Check out the color on the Round Table Yarns website to read the story behind the name. This color is currently available on four bases: Isolde (lace weight; 55% Bluefaced Leicester, 45% Silk), Camelot (fingering weight; 80% Superwash Merino/10% Cashmere/10% nylon), Tristan (sport weight; 100% Superwash Merino wool), and Avalon (DK weight; 50% Merino/50% silk).

❦ Limited Edition SNAPdragon Pouch: Pre-Orders open August 4 ❦

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection was designed to tie-in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project. Debut of a new exclusive yarny accessory will coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). These items will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 items is sold out, whichever comes first.

All items in the collection will feature the same wonderful exterior fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation Collection. The August pouches have cheerful green “Spring Spin” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

I’m pleased to introduce the second item in this collection, my SNAPdragon pouch, released to coincide with Pigeonroof Studios’ eye-popping “Mountains and Valleys” colorway. This bag is available for pre-order starting August 4; you will receive your bag in late September. If you’re going to pop for one new yarny accessory this month, here’s one to make your eyes pop!

SNAPdragon has always been one of my most popular items; people tell me they use it for knitting notions, cosmetics, jewelry, phones, and other small items. I’ve even known people who use it as a mini-project bag — I haven’t tried it myself, but I’m told it will hold half a skein, caked up, and a sock work-in-progress.

This eye-catching little bag will fit easily into your purse, totebag, or larger project bag, and I’m sure you’ll find many uses for it. You’ll be surprised at its capacity, and at just $15 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag!

It’s also lovely for anyone with limited mobility, as there are no zippers or buttons to fumble with. Simply tug gently on the ribbon pulls, and the pouch snaps right open.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 items, available for pre-order August 4, 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
• Order period closes when bags sell out, no later than midnight Eastern Time, August 18, 2017. (Please note, previous round of items sold out in twelve hours.)
• Orders will ship on or before September 30, 2017.
