Introducing the Buffy Mystery Yarn Club!

  • A drawing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer Mystery Yarn Club is finally here! I’ve been wanting to share my love of Buffy for a long time now, and what better time to kick it off than Jilly & Kiddles’ second birthday, right? This club will be centered around the slayers of the series: Buffy, Kendra, and Faith AND fiber. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve cooked up and how everything ties in together as we explore these iconic characters from one of my very favorite TV shows.

This will be a three month mystery yarn club, and shipping within the U.S. is included. Each month you’ll receive a skein of fingering weight yarn, a set of custom Buffy/Yarn-themed goodies by DKGraham, and some other fun extras I’ve been planning out for a while. If you’ve ordered one of my clubs before, you know I always strive to provide a great value, and this is no exception. Let’s have some fun merging two awesome things: our love of fiber and our favorite cult classic series! Orders open 2/4 and close on 2/22; after that they will no longer be available. There will be a limited number of club memberships available and orders will close early if they sell out.

Each of the three monthly club installments includes:

— 100-gram skein of an EXCLUSIVE Buffy-inspired colorway in Jilly & Kiddles fingering weight yarn (bases may vary each month)
— A different custom THEMED notions set each month by DKGraham
— TWO more surprise themed extras
— Shipping is INCLUDED within the U.S.
— Each monthly shipment will be valued OVER $50

If you are outside of the U.S. and would like to order, I’m happy to help with that! Please email me directly for an estimate of additional shipping costs prior to purchasing.

Shipping dates for the club:

1st Shipment: Buffy kit ships April 15th
2nd Shipment: Kendra kit ships May 15th
3rd Shipment: Faith kit ships June 15th

This club has been in the works for quite some time, and I’m so excited to share it with you! I’ve spent a long time finding all the perfect items to include in the shipments and I know you’re going to love it. Plus, Kirstan of DKGraham really knocked it out of the park with her custom-themed goodies, because she’s a huge fan of the show too! She REALLY knows how to incorporate yarny fun with pop culture and it wows me every time. We’re totally geeking out about it. You don’t want to miss out on this one. And if you aren’t familiar with the show, no worries — I share two places you can watch it on the product page in my shop. Take a peek now before you forget…

Sock of the Season Mystery Club

Oh boy, everybody — it’s time to get your order in for the Fall Sock of the Season Club. Traci and I are hard at work getting this Harvest-themed kit together for you, and we’re really excited. Plus, we were able to collab with another special friend this time for one of the extras, and I know you’re going to love what she made for us! Haven’t heard of the SOS Club before? Read on for more info…

The Sock of the Season Club is a collaboration between Jilly & Kiddles Yarn and BritStitchery Designs. We offer a seasonal mystery kit, inspired by Nature. We spend a lot of time creating a curated package for you, and wrapping each item with care. I don’t know if my favorite part is putting the extra special goodies together for you or seeing your posts sharing the kits and your projects. Both make me SO happy! If you’re thinking about an SOS club purchase and aren’t sure what to expect, I’ve included some photos of past seasons’ kits. You can also check out #SockoftheSeason and #SockoftheSeasonClub for IG posts from customers who’ve received previous kits. You’ll get a good idea of what the club’s all about. I know you’re going to love it! And if you’re thinking you’re not a sock person, keep in mind that you can use fingering weight yarn for lots of things… mittens, cowls, scarves, hats. The world’s your oyster! 

The Fall SOS Club includes:
–full skein of sock yarn in club exclusive colorway by Jilly & Kiddles
–brand new and exclusive sock pattern by BritStitchery
–TWO special surprise extras made by makers we know and love
–Free Shipping in U.S. (can ship outside the US for an additional fee, contact me for details)
–Invitation to Makers Social via Zoom on Dec. 5th to celebrate with us!

It’s a great value, and a LOT of fun to receive this special surprise kit. We wrap each item up, so it’s like getting a fab present in the mail that you can unwrap piece by piece! I can’t wait for you to join us. I’ll be closing these on Monday (unless they sell out before that) and starting to dye them up, so act now if you’d like one for yourself.

You can find this product on my website under Collections: Clubs and Kits in the dropdown menu. Fall 2020 kit ships Friday, Nov. 27th.

  • Christmas greens border and the words Stocking Knit-a-Long

Want to get a head start on some holiday knitting? Us too! We are casting on for a holiday stocking Knit-a-Long on November 1st, and hope you’ll join us. There will be weekly prizes, encouragement, help if needed, and we’ll share our progress with each other. Plus, we’ll have a blast knitting a straightforward, two-color stocking in DK weight.

We’ll be using the Deck Your Halls pattern by Stacey Lewis (Aka The Knitting Tutor) and you can purchase Jilly & Kiddles kits which include the pattern. The designer will be knitting along with us as well, so there will be plenty of support if you need any. Don’t worry — you’ve got this!

The goal is to knit the stocking during the month of November, but you don’t have to finish by Nov. 30th to join in OR to win a prize. Just do what you can — we’re in this for fun! Kits are available in four different color options. Order yours today.

Let’s Trick-or-Treat for Yarn!

  • A ghost in front of an orange yarn ball.

Why should kids have all the fun on Halloween? This year, I wanted to do something fun for grownups too. I’m offering a special Trick-or-Treat Bag so you can trick or treat yo’self.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

You’ll get one full skein of mystery yarn. You can choose the weight you prefer or embrace the fun and let me surprise you. Each skein comes with a fun “Trick-or-Treat” Surprise just from me. Shhh… it’s a secret! I’ll also throw a special prize into every sixth one ordered, so maybe you’ll be one of the lucky recipients! Each Trick-or-Treat Bag is packaged separately, so feel free to add as many as you’d like to your cart. You can get one or two for yourself, one for a friend… whatever you’d like! You could even hedge your bets and order six, so you’ll be guaranteed an extra prize.

Feel free to leave me a note when you check out with a little direction to help me choose your colorway. That adds to the fun on my end, and helps you get something you’re going to LOVE (see the product listing on my website for tips on what to say)! I cannot fulfill requests for specific colorways or guarantee an exact match to your hints, but I’ll definitely do the best I can. You know I want to make you guys happy! I’m so excited to send out some special mystery packages so my customers can feel like kiddos on… well, on Halloween! 🎃

These will be offered while supplies last, and fulfilled in the order they are received. The earlier your order, the better I’ll be able to find the perfect match for you. Trick-or-Treat Bags begin shipping Oct. 1st, so be sure to treat yo’self!

This week I’ve put a bunch of colorways on special sale, and I don’t want you to miss the chance to scoop up your favorites! I’m “reworking” some of my own favorite colorways, retiring a few for the season (some maybe longer) and making space for the new cool weather beauties that are coming. I’ll be sharing more details about what’s staying, going, or evolving soon. In the meantime, take a peek at the sale yarn and grab it if you love it. Some of these won’t be back, or won’t be quite the same.

I’m offering free shipping on orders of $100 or more. Just enter the code ThankYou at checkout for free shipping in the U.S. (Also, if you’re outside the U.S. and would like to take advantage of this, send me an email and I’ll see what I can do for you!)

Take advantage of great prices on these Last Chance Yarns and colorways you may not see again and help me make room for exciting new yarn. Sale specials feature MANY customer favorites like Lava Lamp, Raven, Acid Washed, and Field of Wildflowers!
