Peppermint Mocha Sock Kit Preorders

The winds have changed and the feeling of winter has crept into the air. This time of year there is nothing better than a nice pair of hand knit socks to keep your toes warm. C.C. Almon of Java Purl Designs and I have created another wonderful seasonal-inspired sock kit based on her Peppermint Mocha Sock pattern. Each kit and will include a skein of my Snug base yarn in the Peppermint Mocha colorway, a Ravelry pattern download code and this cute hand-stamped progress keeper.

Originally, back in 2016 when this pattern was first published, I created a darker peppermint colorway. But this year I decided to give it an update and this new version starts with a mint green base and has splashes of greens, pinks, browns and a few other colors mixed in.

Please keep in mind when ordering this product that this is a stock photo and there are no dye lots. This means that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from skein to skein, from kit to kit, and from what is depicted in these photo. Preorders for these kit are available starting today and will close on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. EST. I can only make a select number of kits based on the supplies I have on hand and all kits will ship in late November or early December 2018.

Pumpkin Spice Inspired Sock Kit

C.C. Almon of Java Purl Designs and I have once again combined our powers to bring you another wonderful kit. This kit is inspired by C.C.’s I Love You More Than Pumpkin Spice sock pattern. There is nothing better than combining two things you love — Pumpkin Spice and wool. The colors included in this sock kit are an updated version of my Pumpkin Spice colorway from last year and a mini skein of Dark Roast (which has a dark brown purple hue to it). I have two kits available, one with the pattern and without. All kits will include a Snug sock kit and Pumpkin Spice-inspired goodies.

Please keep in mind when ordering this product that this is a stock photo and there are no dye lots. This means that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from skein to skein, from kit to kit, and from what is depicted in the photos. Preorders for these kit are available starting today and will close on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. EDT. I can only make a select amount of kits based on the supplies I have on hand. All kits will ship in late October or early November 2018.

Fall into Halloween 2018

It’s that time of year again! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love fall. The Hudson Valley always looks so beautiful when the leaves begin to change, the apples become ripe and a chill can be felt in the air. Each year I love creating new fall and Halloween inspired colors for the shop. And it’s also the time of year when I like to bring back my tweed yarn bases. This year you will see lots of new colors, tonals, OOAKs and even a few colors from last year. 

Starting tomorrow, August 26th at 10 a.m. EDT, you will find all of these items and more in the Fall into Halloween Collection on the website. 

Happy Crafting 🙂

Regency Collection 5th edition – Pemberley

One of my favorite literary couples is Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. What better way to celebrate their relationship then to go back to place where it all began? It was upon Elizabeth’s tour of Pemberley, the grounds, and seeing how Mr. Darcy acted towards her family that changes her feelings about him. In this 5th edition we go to Derbyshire and the Pemberley Estate. The colors work well together to create a lovely seven color fade. And to make things easier I have offered up the colors for pre-order as a complete kit on my Snug fingering base.

These colors include from Blue to Green: A stream of some natural importance, To be mistress of Pemberley, Elizabeth was delighted, A large handsome stone building, A small country estate, Ridge of high woody hills, & Derbyshire.

Additionally, all Regency 5th edition colors are available individually and can be dyed on Snug, Delight DK, or my Comfy Worsted bases. I only have a limited supply of the heavier weights so once they are gone that is it. There are also two additional colors to the collection: Talk Darcy to Me and The Lakeside District, which also pair well with the colors in this particular fade.

Colors in the 5th edition collection will be available for preorder on the website through Sunday March 4, 2018 until 8 p.m. Eastern time and should ship in late May.

NEW Yarn Bases & Colors

Anyone who know me knows how much I love a good fingering weight yarn. But as the months become colder I look forward to working with a heavier weight yarn. Since I am very picky about the yarn bases that I carry in my shop, it has taken me a while to find the perfect heavier weight yarn bases. I am happy to announce that I finally found them and that they are now available in the shop!

You can now find a variety of DK weight yarns in various blends of Merino, nylon, Cashmere, and sparkle. These new bases are available as single skeins and I even have a few fade kits. For more information about these yarns please visit the Yarn Base section of my website.

Besides adding new bases to the website I have also added a few new colors including Relative Dimension, Three Fates, Celestial Beauty, and some new tonals.
