Pigeonroof Studios Greatest Hits

Pigeonroof Studios has been in business for over 10 years! I can’t believe it; so much has changed in our beloved industry since then. Although I have come up with many, many colorways over the years, there are ones that have been perennial favorites. There are so many, in fact, that this update will be Part One of several over the next couple of months! The update will go live June 24, Saturday, at 12 noon PST, but I’ll try to restock as necessary over the following week. Electric Rose, Ricochet, Ghost Orchid, Pansies, Marvel… remember any of those? Marvel is fairly new but the others have been around for years. I’ll have them on American Sock and polwarth/silk and superwash merino spinning fiber. And for Indie Untangled fans, use the discount code INDIEUNTANGLED for 10% off until July 8th!

So Faded Kits!

This is my first post here on Indie Untangled, and I’m excited to join this wonderful community. I look forward to posting in the future for shop updates, new yarn base debuts (I’m working on quite a few right now) and other special things I have in the works! My yarns and kits are always available online, and also at both the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival and the New York Sheep & Wool Festival. This year, I’m also thrilled to be a vendor at Amy Herzog’s Make. Wear. Love. Retreat in Sebasco, Maine, in September.

Spirit Trail Fiberworks currently has a limited number of kits available, which are perfect for So Faded, Find Your Fade, and other colorwork projects. The featured photo shows the “Evening Shades” Kit, dyed on Sunna (superwash merino, cashmere, silk three-ply fingering weight yarn). This kit includes the following colorways: Nebulous, Vesper, Spectral, Evensong, and Gloaming. The Evening Shades kit is also available on Eos (100% non-shrink organic wool, three-ply fingering weight). We have lots of other kits in stock, from 3 to 6 skeins each, as well as single skeins in a multitude of colors.

I now have online shop updates once per month, towards the end of each month. You can follow me on Instagram at Spirit Trail Fiberworks, or subscribe to my newsletter (sign up on the homepage of my website), for advanced notice of shop updates and what will be included.

Shop is UPDATED – plus an awesome coupon for Indie Untangled readers!

Happy Weekend (and *almost* Summer) to you all from Littlebean!

I have been slowly but surely restocking the shop – and have been quite busy creating new colorways for your yarn collection! Today, I have loaded in a ton of colors on my Everyday Sock base – and some also on Yak and my Simple Sock (singles) base. If you’re feeling inspired, come on by the shop! Don’t forget to use the code INDIEUNTANGLED at checkout for a discount! If you’d like to follow along on my dyeing journey, pop on over to Instagram or to YouTube for the latest. Hugs to you all, and HAPPY STITCHING! 🙂

Outlander Unclub

We are Outlander super fans! We love all things Outlander, from project bags to stitch markers, so we have put together the latest Outlander Unclub preorder a bit early. The series will not be back until the fall, but we just can’t wait any longer.

Now, I know you are asking yourself: What is an Unclub? And how do I participate?

Let me help answer a few questions for you: you will have two weeks to preorder the kit and we will only be making enough of each kit to cover what has been ordered. You will receive a colorway that is exclusive to this kit until 2018.
Season 3/Round 1 will consist of one skein of yarn inspired by of the Battle of Culloden and our hero Jamie Frasier. The project bag is from 3 Foxhollow and will carry you through the voyage on your own tall ship.

POP Thru The Parks!

❦ Limited Edition Wristlet Project Bag: Pre-Orders open June 16 ❦

I designed this zipper wristlet pouch to tie in to Indie Untangled’s Knitting Our National Parks project, which will offer four special yarns in 2017, each by a different indie dyer. I will offer an exclusive yarny accessory, available for purchase separately, to coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). Each offering in this collection 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 this wonderful fabric, part of Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation collection, on the exterior. The June zipper bags have cheerful Soda Pop Top “Sunshine” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

For openers, here is one of my most popular bag styles, offered to coincide with Backyard Fiberworks eye-poppingly beautiful colorway North Cascades Night. If you’re going to pop for one new project bag this month, I think you’ll love this one!

This is a great one-skein project bag, but it’s also sized just right as a “grab-and-go” wristlet purse! It will hold some cash, your phone, keys, lipgloss, tissues, and a bit more. Pull it out of your tote bag, put on your shades, put the top down on the convertible, and let’s blow this pop stand! At just $22 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag, it’s perfect for summer excursions thru the parks, and everywhere.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 bags, available for pre-order starting June 16, 2017.
• Order period closes no later than midnight EST June 30, 2017
• Orders will ship on or before July 31.

Details and ordering info at ThatCleverClementine.com.

PLEASE NOTE: As luck would have it, my website is experiencing a last-minute PayPal snafu, and the shopping cart will not allow you to add an item, or check out.

To order, please go to my online shop and read the listing details, look at the pix, and then use the contact form (at the bottom of the shop page) to reserve your bag.

Follow the instructions on the contact form page, and you will receive a PayPal invoice; payment of the invoice will reserve your place in the queue.

Thanks for understanding the need for this last minute solution!

Afternoons at Longbourn

When imagining the colors for the Regency Collection I saw myself walking through the fields just like Lizzy Bennet or spending the afternoons chatting away with Miss Lucas. I wanted a shawl that would almost be like a blanket, something to wrap myself in as I imagined evenings by the window or of long afternoons walking the grounds of Longbourn with the Bennet sisters in tow.

This is a simple triangle shawl with lots of fringe. The stitches used make this shawl reversible while also allowing you to use multiple colors. While this shawl has written instructions it is more of a recipe allowing you to change the size and look of your finished object. And this pattern is now available as a FREE download on Ravelry or on the Pandia’s Jewels Blog.

This shawl was created to utilize the Regency Collection colors inspired by the world of Jane Austen that are currently being offered on my website. These colors are a pre-order and will only be available for purchase from June 3- 18, 2017 until 8 pm EDT. Just use the word Regency in the search bar and all of the colors in the collection will show up. Orders for these particular colors will ship late July- early August.
