The Gift of Yarn Program — perfect for Mother’s Day!!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what better gift is there than YARN?! Our loved ones know we love yarn but do they really know which yarn we love? Probably not. Well, I’ve got the perfect solution!

My Gift of Yarn Program is a fun and unique one! Your loved one buys the package of their choice and then you choose the color and fiber! You can choose from anything that I have in my current stock. If you don’t see something you like you can wait ‘til the next stocking to see if something appeals to you. There is no expiration! Your loved one can choose to buy one month, 6 months or a full year! During checkout, they’ll give me your email and a date when I can contact you. After that date, I’ll email you asking what color and fiber you want. Send your loved one here!

This week is Small Business Week and to celebrate I’ve got a coupon code for 15% off anything in my shop. Hurry, though – it ends Friday May 5 at midnight! Use coupon code SMALLBIZWEEK at checkout.

Have you found your fade yet? I’ve got a fun KAL going on over in my Facebook Group. It’s super chill and relaxed. You’re welcome to join us if you’re in the middle of it, almost finished, or haven’t even started! Click here to join us.

And finally – Friday means I have new inventory! Head on over to my shop to see what I’ve got!

Sock sets with coordinating heel/toe minis!

The last time I offered sock yarn sets with a coordinating mini they sold out FAST so I decided to offer them again, this time with two popular colorways. Pot O’ Gold and Maeve are 100g/383yd skeins and come with a coordinating 25g/95yd mini skein in the Glas colorway. These sock sets are on my Aoibhneas base, which is my Superwash MCN fingering base. A delight to knit with!

Friday is the LAST day you can order a Joji Starting Point Shawl MKAL kit! I’ve got two kits, available on your choice of 3 bases. Get yours here!

Speaking of sets, I’ve got some skeins that look great together but aren’t sold as sets. You get to mix and match! Eire and Draiocht are both beautiful colorways and would look great with either Loc Ness or Corcra. These drool worthy colorways are dyed on my Misneach base, a worsted weight 100% NON Superwash Sustainable Merino wool yarn.

So many gorgeous yarns….but how will they look knitted up??

We’ve all had that thought.

And I’ve got the answer! Did you know there are different dye techniques? There are 4 — semi-solid, speckled, kettle dyed, and hand painted.

We’re going to explore each one in this FREE week long challenge! It’s all going down the week of April 24 and we’d love to have you join us.

Each day we’re going to explore a different technique. I will send out an email describing the technique, listing the pros and cons, and giving pattern suggestions. Then we’ll knit up a swatch to see how the colors dance and play together! I’ll even have a swatch for my hookers. There will also be prizes!

So are you in? Go here to join us!

Have you found YOUR fade?

Have you found your fade yet? Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits wrote the Find Your Fade Shawl pattern for this stunning and popular wrap and I’ve curated some beautiful kits for you to knit up your very own shawl! Purchase your kit and knit away, knowing that the grouping of colors will turn into a stunning work of art.

Each kit comes with four 100 gram skeins of glorious colors that shift and blend together on your choice of base. The best part of this is that you won’t have tons of extra yarn left over! I’ve created a warm, cool, and speckled kit. Kit does not include the pattern.

This is a pre-order and I’ve only got 10 spots open so make sure you get yours now! These will only be available until March 31st and I will ship the kits out mid to late April.

I’ve also got some adorable progress keepers that I just added to the shop!

Introducing a Yarn Club inspired by The Sound of Music!

My favorite movie growing up was The Sound of Music. Every afternoon after school I would watch it from the beginning until it was time for dinner. So I’ve created a surprise yarn club full of gorgeous yarns inspired by the movie and other little secret goodies!

Every month you can choose the base and how many skeins you want, but the colorway will be a surprise! The colorway may be a semi-solid, variegated, speckled….who knows?! That’s the fun part! I will provide a picture that will inspire my creation so that you kinda get an idea of what you’ll be getting.

You can decide each month if you want to participate based on the month’s theme. You can read more about each base here.

Each kit will contain the following :

1 skein of yarn
A few of my favorite things, all fiber related
Coupons available only to yarn club members
Knit and crochet pattern suggestions

This month’s theme is “The Hills Are Alive”

Kits are available for purchase until February 28, 2017 and will be shipped mid to late March. Shipping is free in the US.

Introducing Wool Box!

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a yarn rut, buying the same type of fibers and colors all the time?

Maybe you need some adventure in your life and love surprises? My Wool Box Subscription Club is perfect for you!

Yarn clubs are an awesome way to break out of those ruts and branch out into new colors and fibers!

Wool Box boxes go out three times per year — February, June and October — and include a surprise base and color hand dyed by me, Melanie.
