While I’m not promising that it will be easy, I’m pleased to be able to give you a little head start: Margaret of French Market Fibers, will be having an Etsy update today (Jan. 9) at 10 a.m. Central. It will be her first major update in over a year, since she took time off from dyeing to be a stay-at-home mom.

ERKGrease

A woman after my own heart, Tami of Eternity Ranch Knits has begun a Year of Broadway Musicals and Grease is the word for January. If you’re too pure to be pink, the skein of BFL or Sparkle sock yarn is dyed up in both pink and black, to represent the Pink Ladies and the T-birds, along with blue, yellow and red. If you’re a Grease fan, the worst thing you could do is miss out on this colorway.

Hampton

Indie Untangled newcomer Debbie of Hampton Artistic Yarns, who dyes on Long Island’s East End, has a bunch of new speckled sock yarns for sale. This photo is of a sock project that Debbie worked on with one of the skeins while on a recent vacation to Punta Cana. While many of you would give anything to be on a beach right now, a pair of socks with this lovely yarn should warm you right up.

You can’t have enough men in kilt— I mean, enough Outlander. And if you’re an Outlander-obsessed spinner, June Pryce Fiber Arts has you covered. Aside from an Outlander mini-skein club, they also have a Spin to Knit Scarf Kit that mixes Claire- and Jamie-inspired colors.

CHD-Outlander

There are only a few spots open in a year-long Outlander yarn club from Canon Hand Dyes and Spark!, organized through the {among friends} Clubs. The six packages, shipped every other month, will include an Outlander character-inspired skein dyed by Amy, a pattern, a project bag and a set of coordinating Spark! stitch markers.

Now through Feb. 1, C.Whitney Knits will be offering Valentine’s Day Mystery Skeins. Two variations are available: the dark and sensual “St. Valentine’s Day Reds” or the light and fluffy “Candy Hearts.” If you order more than one of the same colorway, all skeins will match unless otherwise directed.

Palamon-and-Arcite

KarenDawn Designs has released patterns for the Chaucer-inspired Palamon Hat and Arcite Cowl. Both feature two slip stitch patterns, which makes this a great design for variegated or semi-solid yarns. Knit with a worsted weight yarn, these are quick knits to help keep you warm this winter (and with temps in the Northeast dipping below zero, I can appreciate that!). The patterns are available on Ravelry separately or together as an eBook and are 30% through Jan. 15 with the coupon code ‘Emelye’.
