The Perfectionist Trap kits are here!!

A close-up photo of a knit shawl in shades of pink and green.

This shawl lives up to it’s name. It is perfection!!! It’s big and drapey and I just want to live in it. Super easy pattern, maximum compliment potential!!

I have kits for this on my website in three options! Each kit comes with two skeins of yarn, a stitch marker by Monster Stitches designed especially for this kit and a code for the Ravelry download of the pattern by Kacey Knits. I had mine made in Plant Lady and Avocado and it’s just *chef’s kiss*. But really, any two skeins of DK are all you need for this, and I have tons of colorways — the options are endless!

August Drink of the Month Club is here!!

In Minnesota, August means one thing — the State Fair! It’s a big deal.

Millions of people come to the fair over 10 days. Hot days and warm nights are on order, just before fall comes and we start to smell snow in the air.

For August, I wanted to do something that paid homage to such a huge event. So, I’m doing beer. Simple, easy and tastes oh-so-good on a hot day.

August’s Drink of the Month yarn is on sale NOW! Snag your skeins ASAP! All orders will ship out around the 15th of the month.

Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Advents!

Red text that reads Dammit Janet on a black background.

I’m so excited to announce my Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Advent Box!

I have been obsessed with this movie since my mother took me for the first time at 16. So when I started thinking about creating an advent, it was a no-brainer for me to pick this theme. I can’t wait to share all the yarns with you, dyed to reflect the characters, lines from the movies and some of those iconic songs (did someone say “Time Warp”?)

The advents will include:
* Twelve 87 yard/20 gram mini skeins
* One fingering-weight full skein
* Stitch markers from Monster Stitches
* Wool Wash
* Candy (cuz, duh it’s Halloween)
* And other surprise goodies!

Advents will ship by the end of September so you have them in time to open up in October and for Halloween!

I’m the head dyer, owner, marketer, finance person, etc. When I’m not dyeing, I’m knitting, playing with my dog or drinking wine. I’m also an obsessive comma and exclamation point user! Looking forward to seeing you in the shop!
