DK Sale!

  • A trio of teal and gray yarn

Sometimes you just need a quick, simple, satisfying knit. The Odyssey shawl by Joji is just that, and I couldn’t help but cast one on this week. SilkyYak is the height of luxury and has amazing sheen and drape due to the silk and yak fibers, with enough Merino to hold its shape. If you needed a good excuse to cast one on, all DK in my shop is 20% off through April 30 using code “DkSale”
Happy Knitting!

It’s the last of the fall minis!

Didn’t get to Rhinebeck this year? There is still plenty of fall fun to go around! I had a lot of fun with these fall themed mini sets – “Something Wicked This Way Comes” is a 100% SW Merino DK weight was inspired by our family reading of MacBeth this month, and “Glampyre” – a fun super sparkly fingering weight mini set that definitely fulfill your need for all things glittery!
