Yarn Clubs and Gift Cards!

Marianated Yarns offers three-month yarn club subscriptions in several bases and in either tonal or variegated “Marianades.” In addition to yarn, each shipment includes a little goodie and a Marianette mini-skein in variegated if your subscription is tonal or vice versa. Other perks include free shipping on the rest of your yarn orders during your subscription plus 10% off the colors of the month. As an added bonus, if you are a member for a year, you’ll receive a happy yarn club anniversary skein!

Registration is open until December 20 and the first shipment will go out the first week of January. Join in the fun!

PS Are friends and family bugging you and asking what you would like for Christmas? A Marianated Yarns yarn club makes a great gift! Or if you’d rather pick, ask for a Marianated Yarns gift card.

Lit Society Yarn Club

{{The cut off for January’s club shipment is Dec 31st. We only have 12 spaces left for Pride and Prejudice in January.}}

Treat yourself or someone you love to a luxury literary yarn package each month. (If the subscription is a gift, let us know! We can ship the recipient a special card detailing what to expect so they can get excited for their first shipment!)

This yarn club is based on some of our favorite classic novels, it will be all new colorways inspired by the books listed below. Memberships are available for 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. The longer the membership you buy, the greater the savings. If you’d like 2 skeins of each colorway, pick “Double Dose” when you’re checking out. That gives you the same swag but double the yarn. Colorways will be exclusive to the club for at least 6 months, and if we’re inspired to cook up additional colorways inspired by the book members get first crack at them at a discounted price.

This season of the McMullin Fiber Co. Literary Society begins January 2018 and ends December 2018. Yarn will be mailed on or about the 15th of each month and members will receive lots of extra goodies over the course of the year, like stitch markers, project bags, knitting swag, etc. It’s like getting an amazing swap package in the mail without scrambling to put one together yourself! There will be a mix of our base yarns with tonal semi-solids, kettle-dyed yarns and lots of gorgeous speckles. You choose if you want light yarns (light fingering up to sport weight) or heavy yarns (sport weight up to bulky — mostly worsted weight).
Here’s the schedule:

Jan: Pride & Prejudice
Feb: The Hound of the Baskervilles
Mar: The Hobbit
Apr: The Secret Garden
May: Anne of Green Gables
Jun: The Old Man and the Sea
Jul: The Great Gatsby
Aug: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Sep: To Kill a Mockingbird
Oct: Jane Eyre
Nov: Gone With the Wind
Dec: Little Women

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I pick and choose which months I want?
A: Yes. You can either buy a one month membership for each month that you want, or if you want the savings of the longer term memberships you can sign up for 3 or 6 months and list in the notes to seller which months you want (they don’t have to be a consecutive 3 or 6 months).

Q: What if I decide to extend my membership?
A: You can do that at any time by purchasing another membership from the shop. Unfortunately if you decide to add 3 months to a 3 month membership, you won’t get the same savings of purchasing a 6 month membership up front.

New Mystery Club Colorway

We’re having a shop update today at 7 p.m. Eastern with a ton of new OOAK colorways!

We’ll be kicking off our 2018 Monthly Mystery Sock Club as well. No three-month commitment. Just purchase the month(s) your yarny heart desires! The January listing will go up tomorrow and stay on for one week.

There will be a Mystery Micro-Stripe SockAlong to go with our Mystery sock club! It’s called a Micro-Stripe SAL because almost all my colorways(except tonals) micro-stripe when knit into socks. A prize winner will be drawn every month for 2018 and at the end of the year, a big grand prize winner also be drawn from knitters/hookers who’ve made socks with all 12 mystery club colorways. Check out our website and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to receive sneak previews of our bi-weekly shop updates!

❦ Limited Edition POP Thru the Parks Yarn Bowl Pre-Orders Open 12/8 ❦

THE BACKSTORY:
That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection has been designed to tie in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project, which has offered four special colorways in 2017, each by a different indie dyer.

This item will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 pieces is sold out, whichever comes first. (Please note: previous releases have sold out in as little as 1.5 hours.) All items in the collection feature delightful fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s “Soda Nation” Collection; the December bowls have pumpkin-ish lining with wee yellow dots.

This is the final item in this collection. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and will check back in 2018 for more limited edition fun!

ITEM #4:
Here’s one of my POPular yarn bowls, released to coincide with DuckDuckWool’s eye-popping Glaciers & Wildflowers colorway. These foldable, unbreakable yarn bowls offer a safe place for your yarn as well as a cozy repository for your knitting when you set it aside.

Go ahead, curl up on the couch with your knitting — you can put this soft bowl anywhere, without worrying about it breaking. When the dog jumps up and your bowl goes rollin’ … phew … no broken crockery to cry over! (Plus, customers tell me they use these bowls to keep all manner of household items tidy, from rolled up hand towels to remote controls, from last night’s jewelry and pocket change to dinner rolls.)

ORDERING INFO:
• This Limited Edition item is $32, plus $4 s/h (Sorry, US only.)
• Pre-orders open at 9:00 a.m. EDT, December 8, at ThatCleverClementine.com.
• Order period closes when 24 bags sell out, no later than midnight EDT December 22, 2017.
• Orders will ship on or before January 26, 2018.

THE FINE PRINT:
• Bowl is about 7″ tall at full extension; you can roll it up or down as desired. It is also about 7″ in diameter.
• As with all handsewn items, please expect some minor variations. In particular, print placement will vary, so you will not get the exact assortment of pop caps you see here.
• All items are made by me, in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

Last Chance for Christmas Colorways!

The shop has been updated with the last of the Christmas yarn for the season. There are more heel/toe sock sets in Sugar Plum Fairy, Mistletoe’s for Two, and Christmas Cookies. Along with regular sized heel/toe sets are our Shortie Sock sets that are great for those who like short cuffs or are great for children’s socks. (All heel/toe sets come with 1 main skein and 1 mini skein.)

Lots of Cozy Christmas mini sets have been added. Now is great time to start knitting mini stockings for a Christmas advent for next year. The minis would also look great as squares in a blanket or used to knit ornaments for your tree.

Rainbow Brite heel/toe sets are also back in stock in both the full sized and shortie socks sets. This set is unique from our usual sets because this one features a rainbow heel/toe instead of the usually semi-solid mini skein.
