Celebrate Thanksgiving with 15% Off

Did you know that the tryptophan in turkey isn’t what makes you sleepy after a big Thanksgiving meal? The potatoes, yams and pumpkin pie — all carbohydrate-dense foods — are to blame for your post-dinner drowsiness. Just a little science fact for you to share with your family around the dinner table. 🙂

Speaking of science, my hand-dyed yarns are created using equal parts chemistry and creativity. As the holiday season approaches, I wanted to offer a 15% off sale on all full-sized skeins, no coupon needed, in my Etsy shop to help you treat that special crafter in your life to some hand-dyed sock yarn. Self care is important too, so if you see a skein that catches your eye, make sure to snap it up for yourself! Most of my yarns are dyed as single skeins so many colourways may never be repeated again. The sale ends Monday, November 27.

Oh, and have that second cup of coffee (or tea!) after Thanksgiving dinner. You’ll need a little energy boost to fit in some much-needed knitting time as you enjoy the company of those closest to you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Black Friday, Small Biz Saturday and Cyber Monday!

My Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday specials are starting now with free shipping — use coupon code GIVETHX.

The gift giving holidays are approaching fast! Make life easy for your gift giving impaired family members. Knitmas Kits make a wonderful gift for you or your knitting bestie! The kit comes complete with a mixed set of yarn (there are color choices, because we love choices!), a cowl pattern from Katy Carroll of Katinka Designs, notions, treats and fun extras, too. All you need are knitting needles. The cowl design, which is being kept a mystery until you purchase the kit (because who doesn’t love a holiday surprise?) is for the basic to intermediate knitter, with three options in the pattern to appeal to different ability levels.
It’s the perfect gift for you or your favorite knitter. Make gift-giving easy by sharing this link.

If you’re looking to get into the Christmas spirit, start with Holly, Jolly and Reindeer Poop — three new colorways in Christmas colors. Available in fingering, DK and worsted.

If you’re panicking about last minute knitting gifts, consider super jumbo bulky yarn. My limited edition base, Chumbawumba, knits up a super fast cowl on Size US 50 knitting needles.

And I’m happy to announce that I have gift cards available!
