A Very Purple Shop Update

  • Four skeins of variegated yarn that transition from deep purples to warmer colors in lighter shades.
  • Three full variegated and three mini semisolid skeins of yarn.
  • Half skeins of DK yarn in a variety of colors arranged in a grid.
  • Five braids of marbled spinning fiber.

When it comes to shop updates at Crafter Gamer Geek, the muses pretty much get their way. And this time around they apparently HAD to have purple. Not one to argue with muses, 95% of the June 29th shop update will include purple in some capacity. So, if purple is your jam, this update is for you!

Two new colorways, debuting on a Polwarth DK base (246yds/100g), we have Seirei Skyline and Loquacious Fungus. Each colorway sports a deep purple at one end of the skein and progresses to warmer and lighter tones at the other end. I wanted these to have a slight watercolor feel to them and I love how they turned out!

I’ll also be adding three new Gacha Sock Sets into the roster. They may all have purple, but they each carry a unique vibe. I’m calling them The One and Oni, Triple Threat, and Eternal Duality. I love them all, but to be honest the golden yellow mini skein paired with the purple gradient and wine tones of Eternal Duality gives me all the feels.

I’ve wanted to bring some of the colors from my sock sets onto DK yarn, but not with a direct “port.” So, I decided to try out some DK 50g semisolid skein sets! For this initial small run, I’ve taken Lady of the Jade Chamber, Divine Strategist, Sleepy Ninja, and Conqueror of Demons to create some four-skein sets that I just adore. Each 50g skein is approximately 116yds. Whether you want to cast on something stripey, or some other type of colorwork, these sets will afford you plenty of possibilities.

And finally, just in time for Tour de Fleece, I’ll be adding 10 braids of spinning fiber to the shop. These braids are all 100% Superwash Merino combed top and are marbled versions of the colorways: Conqueror of Demons, Seirei Skyline, Loquacious Fungus, The One and Oni, and Triple Threat. I’m excited to see how spinners will decide to approach these new braids.

The shop update will take place on Wednesday, June 29th at 7PM EST. Please come by to check out all these new offerings. I hope you find something that brings you joy!
