Closing Up Shop Sale

A knitting needle case filled with wooden needles.

This is the hardest post I’ve ever had to write on this page.

As with most other small businesses, 2020 was a time of change, uncertainty, and deep soul-searching. Through this, I realized that this business is AMAZING, and I love all of my fantastic customers, but it no longer works for me the way it is currently set up. Because of this, I have decided to close Rock Solid Designs. It’s possible that we will reopen in 2022, after revamping our manufacturing process and product line, but in the meantime, my family needs me to take a step back and focus fully on other pursuits.

You have all been so amazing — I have loved engaging with you through email, at festivals, on Facebook live videos, Instagram posts… all of it.

As a thank you, we will be having a closeout sale. Everything that is in stock is currently 40% off, which makes this a great time to grab your favorite project bags or pattern storage!

Thank you all again – this has been an amazing seven years, and I have met some FANTASTIC people throughout my adventures.

SuperSize Snag-Free Stitch Marker Stash Sets! With a Stash Storage Tin!

  • Colorful round metal loops next to a silver tin labeled with the words Yank Your Yarn.

Do you just want a whole mess of stitch markers of your very own? There are many patterns out there that require a LARGE NUMBER of stitch markers… Just look at Stephen West’s WestKnits MKAL 2020 for example. That pattern required 54 stitch markers!

I’m offering large sets of either 30 or 50 stitch markers, in a variety of sizes. Not only will I be offering the round classic stitch markers, I will also be offering the magnificent “HIP TO BE SQUARE” stitch markers (with their fabulous Neon Glow Under Blacklight Beads!) in their various sizes as well! There will be lots of varieties available. Also, each set will come with a handy clear-top tin to keep all those stitch markers safely stored, and hopefully away from the vacuum cleaner, or tiny toddler hands who wish to encase your stitch markers in play-dough (true story)!

Lot of 30 stitch markers: $25
Lot of 50 stitch markers: $40

Each set of ROUND stitch marker will be a matching wire color and bead color: Gold bead on Gold wire, Silver bead on Silver wire, Red bead on Red wire, Apple Green bead on Apple Green wire, Sea Blue bead on Sea Blue wire, Purple bead on Purple wire, Copper bead on Copper wire, and NOW MULTICOLOR WIRES with iridescent gold beads!

Kindness Matters

  • A cotton bag with an orange and brown flower pattern and gray socks peaking out.
  • A cotton bag with an orange and brown flower pattern filled with orange-labeled beauty products.

Throughout the year, we support several non-profit organizations.

• KIVA is an international nonprofit, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
• One Tree Planted is dedicated to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees! During the year, every time a LoLo Eco-Bag is purchased, one tree is planted. Just for this holiday season– we’ve extended that to every order! Every time an order is placed, a tree will be planted.
• Equal Justice Initiative works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment.

This year has been unlike any we’ve ever seen. In addition to proudly supporting the organizations above, we felt called to do something MORE. This holiday season we have pledged 5% of all holiday sales to Habitat for Humanity. Every gift helps a family build a foundation. A safe and secure shelter provides a second chance at hope.

We are thrilled to be part of the housing crisis solution. And know that with your purchases this holiday season, you’re part of the solution too.

Sparkly Friends and Lacey Finds

  • A lacy gold shawl pin.

This month’s glittering and lacey new offerings arrive perfectly timed for Monday’s deadline. All orders placed by December 14th will ship in time for Christmas within the USA!

My winter collection makes a glitzy and glamorous debut with this month’s limited edition end minders.

Next up is my Victorian Christmas Collection. Whether you prefer to style your beautiful work with a shawl pin or vegan leather shawl cuff, I’ve got a lacey style for you. The new cuff features a sophisticated lace print for a truly timeless style. The intricate scrollwork of these paired pins shines in your choice of warm gold or wintry silver.

A Song in my Head

  • Multicolored skeins of yarn and faux fur pom-poms.

Just like that song you can’t get out of your head, we can’t seem to keep hats off the needles right now. Not only are they a must have winter accessory for the relentless winter winds and days on end of lake effect snow that keeps us tucked-in for the season here at the Megs & Co headquarters in Western NY, hats are also the perfect quick project for holiday gift making.

We have curated a collection of hat kits full of cozy and warmth to inspire your next project.

Each kit contains one skein of Folk Song, our Aran weight Superwash Merino wool base, paired with one skein of Head in the Clouds, our new mohair and silk laceweight base, and comes with an accompanying hand-stuffed luxurious faux fur pom-pom. Plus check out the listing details on the Megs & Co website (megsandco.com) for pattern inspiration including a bunch of Meg’s favorite free designs!

Whether you still need to cast-on that last minute holiday make, are searching for the perfect gift for your favorite fiber loving friend, or simply want to craft your own cozy, these kits are a perfectly simple way to bring in a little cozy and luxury.

And speaking of our new base! We are excited to announce the release of “Head in the Clouds” to our collection of yarn bases. This luxurious blend of kid mohair and silk is the perfect compliment to any project that needs an extra serving of cozy and warmth.
To celebrate the release, we just had to create a brand-new colorway collection. The Raise Your Spirits Colorway Collection features eight vibrantly jewel toned colors inspired by some of our favorite celebratory cocktails to help bring a little spirit and shine to your next project. 2020 may be the year of firsts and worsts, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead and toast to a brighter future on the horizon.
