I’m sure you agree with me that time flies when you’re knitting. I can be doing the most mundane thing, including inching across the Manhattan Bridge on the Q train and, if I’m working on my latest WIP, I can almost (almost) forget the nonexistent “train traffic.”
Time has also flown for Indie Untangled, which officially launched three years ago, on April 4, 2014. Since then, I’ve sent out 157 weekly newsletters, published 766 Marketplace posts and welcomed hundreds of fellow fiberphiles to three Rhinebeck Trunk Shows. I’ve also given away countless skeins of yarn and, of course, some prizes are in order to mark this special occasion.
Today through Saturday I will be giving away three skeins on Instagram. Check the feed each day to learn about that day’s prize and how you can win.
Thanks so much for coming along on this yarn-filled journey with me!

Kettle Yarn Co. has got a fun promotion going on. Up until the 25th, Linda will be posting special offers on Instagram for the #twelvedaysofknitmas. So far, there have been some great discounts and limited-edition skeins. You can also enter a secret santa prize draw by following @kettleyarnco and reposting each offer, tagging two friends and using the hashtag #twelvedaysofKNITmas. Much better than birds and drummers.
Stitchjones is proud to offer a new base called Upper Left Edge, a lightweight Merino sportweight yarn that was born in the USA and milled in Whidbey Island, Washington. She has dyed it in a range of nature-inspired colors — that’s Patagonian Foxglove above. It works as a sport or DK-weight yarn and has a generous put-up of 360 yards.
Even if your winter plans don’t include a trip to the beach, you’ll want to take along Cottesloe Days wherever you travel. This long, striped, fingering-weight accessory is inspired by designer Mitenae’s trips to Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia. The pattern includes instructions to make a cowl, scarf or convertible scarf — and it’s 25% off for a limited time.
