Interstellar Yarn Travel Set

My Interstellar Yarn Travel Set was inspired by NASA’s efforts to colonize Mars and some of the things I would personally want when knitting or crocheting my next project as I travel among the stars. This small kit will contain three full skeins of either my Snug Base or Delight DK base yarn, an exclusive cotton tote bag, and matching set of stitch markers. Colors include- Sheep In Space (white with speckles), Stellar Nursery (blue with speckles) and Echos Through Time (blue/gray tonal). And I have dyed the colors so that they can be used together or separately depending on your intended project.

I will have a small number of each set available in the preorder collection on my website starting at 10 a.m. EST on Saturday June 22 through 8 p.m. EST on Friday June 28th. All preorders will ship some time in August.

Summer Camp Sock Club sign-ups are open!

Swimming, hiking, sing-a-longs, campfire cooking and all the fun things from the summer camps I remember. Making sand candles and friendship bracelets, canoeing (and capsizing!) along the lakeshore, enjoying s’mores and roasted marshmallows. These and more are my inspirations for this quarter!

Sign ups for this quarter are open from June 14 to June 28, 2019.

3rd Quarter – July, August and September 2019

Each month, for three months, I will hand dye a unique colorway based on the current theme, on a sock/fingering weight yarn and deliver it to you.

You will also receive extra “goodies” each month. They’ll be different each month, and might include things like:

stitch markers or progress markers
tea or coffee samples, candy
notecards, gift tags, notepads,
a coordinating mini skein
and who knows what else…!

Club colorways are exclusive for club members and not for regular sale for three months.
Club packages are mailed out on the 10th of each month (or as close to it as possible) for the length of your club membership. The shipping cost is included in the price.

Yarn baskets for your summer knitting

  • Red and pink project bags for knitting.

Lying on the beach or sitting beside the fireplace, knitting is always at our side!

These yarn baskets, handmade in my atelier in Alsace, are the perfect companion of your knitting.

Practical, stylish and spacious, they can easily carry a sweater project, perfect to follow you around during your vacation!

Light as a feather, they feature three pockets and a functional draw string to close it up and keep it safe from falling.

If you are looking for the perfect, light and stylish yarn basket, free standing by your side, but also to transport your precious knitting and crochet around, go no further!

Carefully curated fabrics, along with modern colours, create a basket that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch, but also very handy with its colourful pocket.

The Super Gioia Yarn Basket is made up of a durable cotton canvas, lined with soft light cotton, two handy handles and a super pocket divided in three handy compartments, all in vibrant colours. There is no interfacing or anything plastic to making it stand up.

Exclusively conceived by La Cave à Laine for the knitters and crocheters, it is the big perfect yarn basket.

It can also be easily folded and used as a small carry on bag, always ready to welcome new yarn or groceries.

Super Gioia means huge joy in Italian.

*Sewing Nerd Alert*: the thread, 100% cotton, is always matching the fabric, so if the outer layer is red and the lining is yellow, the thread will be red for the outside and yellow for the inside.

Sheep to skein to the dye pots – 10% off Friday only!

  • A pink speckled handknit sock on a sock blocker.

This week my update will feature my All American Sock base in collaboration with a new sock pattern from Lindsey Fowler of Lost and Fawned.

Lindsey and I collaborated on this special design to highlight all the best qualities of my All American Sock yarn base. This base is special not only because it is domestically produced, but also because it is perfect for socks! With a slightly more “toothy” texture than my other fingering bases, this base will hold up beautifully for socks and offer brilliant stitch definition for all kinds of stitch patterns. The Wandering Lost socks feature simple and sophisticated lace and cables with a nod to a slow, soul feeding wander through the woods. The pattern is available on Ravelry.

This special yarn is available in several colorways on my website! Sample shown in Sassy Ballerina photographed by test knitter Ashley Shorey. Second photo shown in Sly Fox by pattern designer Lindsey Fowler.

Order yourself a skein or two this Friday, June 21st and you’ll save 10% automatically from your All American Sock order. This discount is only good Friday, so don’t wait! You’re going to love this yarn.

** Shipping delay in effect for orders placed between June 22-June 26**
