Tour de Sock 2017

I’m so proud to again be a sponsor for Tour de Sock, a knitting competition that is also a fund raiser for Doctors Without Borders! Not familiar with TdS? Check out the Ravelry group here! Knit for speed or just hang out and have fun whether you compete or not! The small entrance fee gives you access to seven sock patterns, discount codes from sponsors, and a chance to win prizes!

Special TdS colorways are now available in the shop and are available whether you’re racing or not. : D

Registration runs through June 25, and the Tour kicks off with the first pattern drop on July 15.

Kits, Shows and More!

Collaborating with designer Casapinka on Gray Area, her new pattern, has been great. I’ve had a blast putting together different color combinations in the kits, and hope that you can find the perfect set for your project! Each set contains 6 mini skeins with 100 yds/25 gr each and one full sized skein with 400 yds/100 gr of fingering weight yarn. Choose from Victorious, a lovely superwash merino, or Beyond, a wonderful MCN blend.

Upcoming Shows:
Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA Feb 23-26
Vogue Knitting Live Vegas March 24-26
Stop by and say hello if you’re there!

Sock Madness is kicking off on Ravelry and we’re thrilled to be offering Knit the Madness, a special colorway for the event. Check it out, even if you’re like me, and watch from the sidelines! : D

We’re baaaack!

October has been a busy month! We had a booth at Lambtown as well as Fiber Fusion NW, but have made it back home, took a quick breath, and got busy getting the shop back up and running, with some returning favorites as well as some new colorways! Both shows were a lot of fun, but it’s always good to get back home and settle into a routine again. : D

The shop should stay stocked until it’s time to head out for Stitches West in February. Stop by if you’re there!

Shawl Sets, Gradients, and More!

I was thrilled when Casapinka, the designer of the fabulous Koi Pond shawl, asked if I’d be interested in creating some kits for her shawl pattern! I’ve been having a blast putting these together!

Each set contains one set of 6 mini skeins (approx 100 yd/25 gr each) as well as one full size contrast skein (400 yd/100 gr). The pattern is not included in the set, but is available on Ravelry for instant download from the designer.

Mini kits are also available as stand-alone items, so feel free to let your imagination run wild with all the possibilities.

Contests and Shows and Updates, Oh My!

May is shaping up to be a very busy month! Invictus Yarns is proudly sponsoring Tour de Sock for another season. Sign-ups for this wonderful fundraiser begin on May 1, with the actual race kicking off on June 1. Don’t miss the chance to support Doctors WIthout Borders while you are knitting some awesome socks for a chance to win some yarn! Peek at the Ravelry group for more information.

Vogue Knitting Live comes to Pasadena, CA May 13-15. This will be our first year there, and we’re really excited to participate! Come by booth 115 and say hello!

In support of TdS, some sock yarns will be left in the shop while we’re at VKL, with the remainder of the stock being added starting Tuesday, May 17, once we get the car unloaded.

My Favorite Things Yarn Club is now open for new members!

My Favorite Things Yarn Club subscription time is here again! Perhaps in time for a gift idea, either for you, someone you know, or as a hint for someone who may not be sure what you’d like to receive. Monthly shipments make it the gift that keeps on giving!

Once you subscribe, you will be billed monthly and your membership will continue until you cancel or the club ends.

Each shipment will contain one skein of yarn that will be exclusive to club members for at least a one-year period. Be sure to join the Invictus Yarns Ravelry group, if you haven’t already, for KALs and chances to win prizes, as well as to chat, of course! There may also be some extra goodies added to the shipments from time to time, too.

Heading to Stitches MidWest!

Invictus Yarns is thrilled to have our first booth at Stitches MidWest this year! (okay, so we’re kind of nervous, too, but mostly thrilled.) The show is August 6-9 in Schaumburg, IL, so the yarn will be making a nice jaunt across the country. You may notice that the shop will be really low on merchandise starting around July 27 to make sure that it has plenty of time to get to the convention center and get ready to meet you. I’ll have things back up and running as soon as things come back home after the event.

If you’re going to be attending, please stop by booth 829, say hello and maybe even swap a stitch marker! We’ll have a bit of everything for you to see in person and a special limited edition colorway, too! Heartland will be available on several bases at the show but will not be redyed for the shop afterward, so be sure to pick it up while you’re there.

Hope to see you in a few weeks!

BFL is Back In Stock!

Unconquerable Sole BFL has proven to be a very popular fingering weight sock yarn! With 80% Superwash Blue Faced Leister and 20% nylon, it’s no wonder that this durable yarn had sold out of stock. Never fear, though, because it’s now back in stock and available in a variety of colorways to suit your crafting needs.

The shop is nice and full now after having and should stay that way until we get ready to pack up for Stitches MidWest this fall. Hope to see you there!
