Patisserie Series

  • Pink and gold yarn with the word Patisserie.

Our Patisserie Sock Club was our most popular club so far, and I’ve had lots and lots of requests for all these colorways since the spring. And now they’re available to everyone!

Each Sock Club is exclusive to club members for three months after the club ends. That time is now over for the Patisserie colorways… woo hoo!

I’ve been working on a lovely three-color shawl by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade called Impressionists Shawl. I’ve still got a ways to go on it, but knitting with these yummy yarns is – dare I say it – delicious! 🙂

Our fourth quarter Sock Club signups are now open

Sign-up for the fourth quarter of our popular Sock Club now! The theme for this quarter is… A Poetic Touch!

Luscious florals, well-worn notebooks, romantic views and moody rooms — these are a few of the ideas and images that inspired the theme.

To paraphrase Diane Ackerman, “Poetry has a way of lifting a feeling or idea out of its routine so that it can be appreciated with fresh eyes.” We’ll be focusing not only on poems, but also a few poets and the worlds they inhabited.

Signups for this quarter are open from September 14 to September 28, 2019.

Each month, for three months, I will hand dye a unique colorway based on the current theme, on a sock/fingering weight yarn and deliver it to you.

You will also receive extra “goodies” each month. They’ll be different each month, and might include things like:

stitch markers or progress markers
tea or coffee samples, candy
notecards, gift tags, notepads,
a coordinating mini skein
and who knows what else…!

Visit our website to view previous sock club colorways, or take a peek at our spring club, Patisserie, in our highlight video.

Summer Camp Sock Club sign-ups are open!

Swimming, hiking, sing-a-longs, campfire cooking and all the fun things from the summer camps I remember. Making sand candles and friendship bracelets, canoeing (and capsizing!) along the lakeshore, enjoying s’mores and roasted marshmallows. These and more are my inspirations for this quarter!

Sign ups for this quarter are open from June 14 to June 28, 2019.

3rd Quarter – July, August and September 2019

Each month, for three months, I will hand dye a unique colorway based on the current theme, on a sock/fingering weight yarn and deliver it to you.

You will also receive extra “goodies” each month. They’ll be different each month, and might include things like:

stitch markers or progress markers
tea or coffee samples, candy
notecards, gift tags, notepads,
a coordinating mini skein
and who knows what else…!

Club colorways are exclusive for club members and not for regular sale for three months.
Club packages are mailed out on the 10th of each month (or as close to it as possible) for the length of your club membership. The shipping cost is included in the price.

New colorways

  • Spruce green semisolid yarn.

Our new spring colorways have been making their appearances in the shop over the last few weeks, since we got back from DFW Fiber Fest. I’m not sure what came over me this year, but we’ve got a bushel full of new colorways for spring, and I had a ball playing in the dye pots and coming up with them! Tonals, speckles, variegated… we’ve got them all.

We just added another batch to the shop yesterday that included Fresco, Spruce and Ink. Hop on over and have a look around!

New sock pattern – Bijou Socks

Our newest sock pattern is available now on our website and on Ravelry!

Bijou Socks is a simple and elegant sock pattern that I’m pretty sure is going to become my go-to sock pattern. One of the definitions of “bijou” is jewel or trinket, small and elegant. That’s how I think of the little stitch pattern in these socks. It’s just a little trinket, but it makes for a subtle and elegant pattern.

I love knitting socks that look beautiful, like a jewel, but without having to concentrate and fuss over a complicated stitch pattern or chart. These fit the bill to perfection!

Limited Time! Christmas Sweets Sock Set pre-orders

I had so much fun with my first holiday-themed sock set last year, I decided to do it again this year! And I am making a few changes this year. Mostly in the “more choices” category.

This year we’ll have the following options:

• Order the “classic set” – A full skein of the main color and a coordinating mini in 1 of 3 choices.

• Order the “deluxe set” – A full skein and 3 minis – one of each color.

• Order the “skein only” – One skein of the main color and no mini.

• Order the “minis only” – A 5 mini skein set with the main color, three minis and an extra color.

The theme this year is Christmas Sweets and the main color is Creme de Menthe on Sojourn Sock. It’s a very subtle microstripe in a yummy mint color. The mini colors are Cranberry Creme (pink), Red Velvet (red), and Scotch Pine (green).

The full mini skein set will include Creme de Menthe, Red Velvet, Cranberry Creme, Scotch Pine and Tinsel (silvery gray) – each on a 20g skein of Sojourn Sock.

I’ll be taking the pre-orders from now through Thanksgiving weekend (November 25) with the orders shipping out on Wednesday, December 5. That’ll give everybody plenty of time for a holiday cast on!

There are a limited number of sets available, so visit our website to order now!

So many indie dyers. One email.
