Choose Your Yarn Adventure, Plus a Sale

I’m doing another Choose Your Yarn Adventure Giveaway. This time I have four different colorways on four different yarn bases for you to choose from. The winner will receive his or her favorite skein. You can find out more and enter to win here.

Also, as I look toward the new year I have decided to focus on fewer yarn bases and more different colorways, so to that end I have a super sale going on some lovely yarn here.

Thanks for looking! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Black Friday Super Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I’m doing a super sale from now through Cyber Monday. When you buy three skeins of yarn or art batts, or a combination of both, you’ll get one for free. You don’t even need a coupon code. Just add four items to your cart and one will be free!!!

I’m also having a “secret sale” for newsletter subscribers only, with something different each day between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I’ll be sending out the email to all my subscribers on Thursday evening, so if you subscribe before then, you’ll get to learn about the secret sales too.

Thanks for looking!

Twelve Days of Christmas Mini Skein Set

I am really excited to bring you this mini-skein set for the Twelve Days of Christmas! It will make a fabulous gift for the yarn lovers in your life, and it would also be a great way to step away from the busy-ness of the wonderful Christmas season and enjoy a little time to crochet or knit for yourself. Sending hints to your loved ones is definitely allowed. 😉

Each day starting with Christmas Day, you or the person you give it to will get to unwrap a beautiful little box containing a hand-dyed 20 gram mini skein. The boxes will be numbered for each of the twelve days of Christmas. Each 20-gram mini skein is 87 yards long, and I will be dyeing them as a gradient set of twelve minis in a combination of variegated, speckled, and tonal colorways that are made to be used altogether. The minis are made of squishy soft 100% Superwash Merino, and the whole set of minis will come to 1,044 yards and 240 grams. That is enough for a medium-sized shawl, poncho or cropped sweater.

If you would like to make it even more special, you can choose to add a full-sized 100-gram skein made of my So Silky Sock yarn to give for Christmas Day, and then the minis will last through the Feast of Epiphany on January 6th. If you choose the full-sized skein too, then the whole set will come to 1,481 yards of sock-weight yarn and 340 grams, which is enough for a bigger shawl, poncho, and many full-sized sweaters. The So Silky Sock yarn is an amazingly soft yarn made of 50% silk and 50% Superwash Merino.

This set will work with a lot of different patterns, but I’ll include a list of some great knit and crochet patterns that would work well for both sets.

You can order through the end of November, and then I will be dyeing up all the orders and mailing them out by the 10th of December to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas. Because of the short timeline, I’m afraid I will have to limit these sets to others who live in the U.S.

I will not be using traditional Christmas colors for these. Instead I will be dyeing the minis in a gradient that goes from purples to blues to a soft sea-foam green — colors that will look great all the time.
