Sign-Ups are open for Yarn Knot

I’ve just opened sign-ups for another year of Yarn Knot, my quarterly yarn subscription service. Each shipment includes a skein of hand-dyed, fingering-weight yarn along with a suggested pattern. Yarn Knot allows me to experiment with different fiber blends that aren’t part of my current lineup, and it’s a fun way for subscribers to try something new. All colorways are exclusive for one year. Payment options include either one-time or quarterly installments.

Mavis Update

Mavis, a fingering weight Merino/silk blend, is delightful to work with. Soft Merino with a silky shimmer makes this a luxurious yarn. I’m excited to announce that this yarn is available in larger skeins. Mavis now comes in 113 gram / 434 yard skeins. That’s over 50 yards more than the previous skein size. See the website for details and several new colorways.

On the Road with New Colorways

I’ve just released a few new colorways in Lillian. Since spring is slow to make an appearance this year, these new colors are a fun way to add a touch of spring to your knitting.

A true sign of the season is the Great Rhody Yarn Crawl, which is happening this weekend in Rhode Island. On Sunday, I’ll be on hand at the marketplace at Mount Hope Farm. If you’re in the area, try to take advantage of this event. It’s a great way to support local yarn shops and fiber artists.

New Kit for Spring

The X-Mitts Kit has been added to the website. As we transition to warmer weather, these fingerless mitts will come in handy. It features a blend of Alpaca, Merino and Silk and comes in a variety of colors.

New colorways are in the works for spring and summer. Keep an eye on the website.
