There are so many exciting announcements from our studio this week!
First is the announcement of our new base collection! This collection is inspired by gemstones and will continue to be expanded in the future. These will always be available in our studio for purchase as opposed to our limited time collections. Currently, we have 11 colorways in this collection.
To celebrate the release of our base collection, we will be hosting a Knit-a-Long! The pattern we will be doing is the beautiful Waiting for Rain shawl by Sylvia McFadden. We are extremely excited to be able to showcase our new base collection with this gorgeous pattern! The Knit-a-Long will be for the one color pattern, but for those that are up for a challenge, the pattern also comes with modifications to add a second color, more lace, and different cast-offs. We will be listing color combinations to choose from for those who want two colors. This knit-a-long will run from November 1st to December 31st.
During the Knit-a-long, we will host a weekly Knit and Sip via Zoom Wednesday nights from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PST, so that you can hang out and chat with other knitters. Break out your favorite tea or drink and join us. You can be a part of the Zoom calls by joining our new Community Group on Facebook. Not only will you finish this knit-a-long with a beautiful new shawl, there will also be giveaways for participants along the way! We are so excited to have you join us. The kits for the knit-a-long will be available for purchase through the month of September in order to give us time to dye before the start date in November.
The next on our list of announcements is our first annual Advent Calendar! These gift boxes will include 24 individually packaged mini skeins to open throughout December and one full skein to open on Christmas. All of the yarn in this calendar is in our signature fingering weight base, Andromeda. There will also be lots of little gifts and surprises in each day’s box as well. This is a perfect gift for yourself or your favorite fiber artist this Christmas. There will be a few “traditional” Christmas-themed skeins, as well as a variety of jewel tones and timeless colors that can be used in a variety of projects!
Not only will we have our yarn Advent calendar this year, we will also have a stitch marker Advent calendar available for the avid collector. You will receive daily presents to open with unique, handmade stitch markers, and on Christmas you will receive one of our new Analog Row Counters. Both the yarn and stitch marker advent calendars will be available for pre-order until September 30th. You don’t want to miss out.
And the announcements just keep coming! We are also excited to announce the release of our Stardust Yarn Club and Sock of the Month Club subscription boxes! This once a month box is the perfect gift for both knitters and crocheters. Each month will have a fun theme and surprises along with the hand-dyed skeins. If you have a certain weight of yarn you want, but aren’t sure of the color, you can also pick up one of our new mystery boxes. You pick the weight; we pick the colorway!
