Burn your Bra was inspired by a dear friend who has been my down-girl since the mid ‘90s. In 2021, she found herself in the throws of a heroin addiction. She overdosed on fentanyl twice but was saved by Narcan. I am exceptionally grateful she is alive. Today she is just over a year sober and really shining. I want to help someone else be able to say that of their friend. Shatterproof aims for that goal as well.
50% of your purchase today (and 20% of our wholesale sales) of Burn Your Bra will be donated to Shatterproof to aide in the continued fight against the fentanyl epidemic. Shatterproof is a national non profit organization dedicated to reversing the addiction crisis in the United States.
The September PNW Club will be a trip to Crater Lake! The famous deep blue waters of this lake formed after the collapse of a volcano in southern Oregon. The photos for this month’s inspiration were taken during a visit at the end of the summer in perfect weather, but I would like to visit one day when it’s all wrapped up in snow.
It’s fall, y’all!
I love summer, but I also love all the things fall: cooler temps, changing leaves, PSLs, project planning, etc, etc. So basically, yay September!
All kinds of project bags and notions pouches have been listed in the fall shop update and are ready to find their forever homes. I’m featuring patchwork quilted designs in autumnal colors, there’s sure to be one that you “fall” in love with.
So wrap up in that shawl you knitted last year, sip your pumpkin spice, and head on over to the shop.
Halloween is one of our most fave holidays and every year, we offer a fantastically spooky Halloween Treat Box! The Boo for Ewe Mystery Halloween Treat Box is now available on preorder! Snag one of these and expect to dive into two hanks of frightfully gorgeous Halloween yarn on your choice of base (one a tonal solid and the other a variegated colorway,) and delightfully creepy treats along with a link to a few pattern suggestions and a curated playlist!
This week, we have new Whimsy Sock Sets in the shop. These expanded sock sets (includes a full hank of yarn and two coordinating minis) feature “whimsy” full hanks meaning they are OOAK colorways and once gone, they are gone! Restocked this week is Candy Corn, deliciously sweet, and Bomb Diggity along with an assortment of our Alcott Minis.
Be sure to watch our LIVE! podcast this Saturday over on our YouTube channel. We can’t wait to see you!
Every time I go back to visit Wyoming I’m always surprised at how big the sky is, and then surprised I could forget. But there’s something about being there, where the empty land stretches as far as the eye can see, and the sky is the star of the show. Our fall Collection was inspired by the lands, but especially by the ever-changing skies of Yellowstone Country. The collection is open for preorders with several bases available in each of 12 glorious colorways. There are also mini-skein sets in our Squishy Sock base and half skein sets in our Posh DK base. This weekend only we have a special coupon code for Indie Untangled readers – 15INDIE15 – for 15% off your entire order.
September means kids heading back to school, anticipation of winter, and cooler weather! And, of course, beautiful fall leaves of magnificent colors… red, orange, yellow leaves falling to make a lovely soft carpet that is so fun to walk through… until you have to rake them up, LOL!
Now I live near Phoenix, Arizona, so I don’t get the fall leaves here. I’m still anticipating not-so-freaking-hot and somewhat drier weather with the end of our rainy season. Yet I still feel the pull of the colorful sights of trees in autumn in the higher country. To celebrate this beautiful time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, I’ve created the official Limited Edition September 2022 Clippy, “Make Like a Tree … and Get Outta Here!”
You know in my shop I always have a 15% discount for any orders over $20, as well as a FREE GIFT and FREE SHIPPING to the domestic U.S. on EVERY SINGLE ORDER, but I want to make that deal a little sweeter. EACH MONTH, I will be giving away a SPECIAL marker designed specifically for that month. When I run out of them, they will be GONE!
In the month of September, if you place an order totaling over $20 in Yank Your Yarn’s Etsy Shop, you will receive an EXTRA stitch marker, called “Make Like a Tree … and Get Outta Here!” The marker features a lovely maple leaf shaped enameled charm in pastel fall colors and gold trim, festooned with coordinating beads on an 18mm gold lobster clasp, for easy moving about on your knitting or crochet project. It’s a movable stitch marker, end of row or beginning of round marker, pendant, lanyard charm … YOU decide!
I don’t have many of these so make sure you get your $20+ order in now …. when these are gone, THEY’RE GONE!
Our mini skein sets include 10 mini skeins on sock yarn. They are truly one-of-a-kind as there is only one per set available. They’re great for shawl knitting, socks, colorwork, stripes — the possibilities are endless with these sets.
We have some long awaited yarn release news! This week we have had an update of Titus Lace, which is our ever-popular blend of Superwash extrafine Merino with mulberry silk. The majority of the update is our signature semisolids as these are so versatile for laceweight projects, but there are a few variegated shades included as well. We have a new section to our blog called Pattern Inspiration and in there you will find all our blog posts which are specifically pattern related. This includes posts about individual patterns, posts about books or collections and ideas for specific yarn types. For example, in this category you will find posts about The Shawl Project Book Five from The Crochet Project, Bowland Lace pattern suggestions, and crochet patterns for laceweight yarn. All of these would be handy if you want to try laceweight yarn but don’t know what to use it for. There are also laceweight patterns on our website including Sun and Shower by Jaya of Apoorva Designs which was part of our Four Season Collection (there are also blog posts about this 😆).
We have recently seen increased popularity in our four-colour 4ply packs, with lots of people asking about them, too. It turned out to be for Casapinka’s Sharon Air MKAL using four 100g skeins of 4ply/fingering weight yarn and the initial pack put together for the MKAL is a fade of pinks mixing semisolids and variegated shades. Over the next few weeks we will be dyeing and putting together more different packs, so if you haven’t seen one you like please keep checking back. We have also been adding four-colour Milburn 4ply packs so there is plenty to choose from. These packs can obviously also be used for any other four-colour pattern using 100g per colour (Penicuik by Justyna of Lete’s Knits, is a really good option). We are adding new packs as we find them but stocks of each are limited by the available stock with the exception of the Milburn packs. There are also a few new five-colour yarn packs on the website if you are planning ahead for Joji’s Fall KAL.
After the Tempo 4ply update, we added a selection of Tempo 4ply sock sets to the website. These combine one 100g skein with one 20g mini skein of the same yarn in a contrasting colour and these are ideal for adding a pop of colour to your sock projects by using the mini skein for heels, toes or cuffs. They don’t have to be used for socks though, you could also use the sets for fingerless mitts or to add a bit of colourwork to hats or shawls.
