What to stash this week: the great North American yarn road trip

Colorways in the bi-monthly Dragonfly Fibers yarn club for 2019 will be inspired by North America’s unique landmarks and people — and YOU can help by sending photos of places that you find special! Each shipment will include suggestions for patterns to use with the yarn. You can also choose a subscription with or without swag, which in the past has included such amazing goodies as a shawl pin from IU maker Michelle of Crafty Flutterby Creations and a project bag from That Clever Clementine. 

Do not throw away your shot at this amazing set of Hamilton-inspired goodies from Slipped Stitch Studios. Sales start today at 9 a.m. Pacific time and are open until December 26. Laura’s also made up a little certificate that’s perfect for gift giving. 

Lovers of cinema and/or horror, this yarn club is for you: Petra of Undercover Otter has created a wonderful adventure for her 2019 club that is inspired by the horror flick Igor, the awkward henchman to the mad and power hungry. Each shipment of this monthly club contains one or two skeins of a unique colorway exclusive to members for six months, a lesson on how that month’s Igor relates to cinema and some fun extras. Movies include Frankenstein, Manos: The Hands of Fate and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Just in time for winter, Kristi of Shalimar Yarns is updating her shop with Breathless Cush, her luxury bulky base that’s a blend of 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere and 10% silk. Use the code INDIESNO to receive 10% off your order and knit up two new accessory designs, including a quick colorwork hat called Snoflinga and a free two-skein cowl pattern.

Preorders for the Sorting Hat Kits, a magical collaboration between Nichole of One Sock Wonder Bags and Caitlin of String Theory Colorworks, are coming to a close. Claim your spot in the Yarnwarts School of Fibercraft and Yarnery and receive a custom-dyed self-striping colorway, a complementary mini skein in the House Color chosen for you by The Sorting Hat, WIPQuidditch and Sorting Hat Sheep Squeezers and an Accio Yarn! enamel pin. All will ship out on January 15.

Today is the last day to order Spirit Trail Fiberworks’ stunning Crater Lake-inspired colorways, with 10% of all sales donated to the National Park Foundation.

It may be too late to get actual indie-dyed yarn shipped in time to put under the tree, so consider an even better gift — a subscription to the 2019 Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club. This quarterly club will begin shipping in February and brings together four dyer/designer teams that will collaborate on an exclusive colorway and accompanying accessory design inspired by where they knit.

Clockwise from top left are inspiration photos from Life In the Long Grass and Rizzaknits, Martin’s Lab and Justyna Lorkowska, Asylum Fibers and Woollywormhead and Fuse Fiber Studio and Knitting Expat. Sign-ups are open through December 31 — give a gift that lasts all year long!
