GoT unclub

Winter is here!

We have waited for years for this, and have dreaded it at the same time. Why must great things come to an end? To celebrate the last season of Game of Thrones, and commemorate the stunning series finale, we have put together a two-part kit.

The first installment will be a skein of Game of Thrones-inspired yarn and a marvelous dumpling bag using licensed GoT fabric. The second installment will be a second gorgeous GoT-inspired skein of yarn, as well as stitch markers with images of key characters.

Order your limited-edition kits before they sell out!

First ship date is April 1.
Second ship date is May 1.

Exciting (life) news means a shop hiatus is coming up soon!!

Thank you to everyone who came by to say hello at Vogue Knitting Live in New York City! It was incredible to see so many people, and I had a blast.

KnitSpinQuilt is excited to have some box bags back in stock. These bags are fully lined in white or low-volume print fabrics, have a handle long enough to loop over your wrist or (my favorite) to attach to a clip and hang from another bag, and use long-pull zippers with broad blunt teeth, the better to not snag your yarn. Taxis have been out of stock for ages, but they’re baaaaaack!

There are also a variety of sock and shawl-sized drawstring bags: the manatees are a particular favorite, and are in stock as of this blog post with all three colors of tops!

There are also new rainbow llama stitch markers, as well as dainty enameled flowers and hearts. Do you love coffee? Tea? Wine? There are stitch markers so your knitting can drink with you (bonus: no stains!)

But!

There’s another announcement too: I am going to be out of the country for graduate school (doing archival research in England) starting on February 26th, and the shop will be closing while I am gone — which is until June 1, 2019. There’s just no way for my one-person operation to keep going while I’m spending all my time reading medieval manuscripts in England. 

This means that the last day to get your orders in is February 22! If there’s something you’ve been on the fence about, buy it before I leave!

This Friday we bring you Knit Happens from one of our newest favorite indie artists, Cynthia Frenette!

Check our Facebook page for a Facebook Live Friday morning. If you don’t catch it live, it will be up on the page for you to watch later!

Friday is Laura’s Birthday, so feel free to say “Happy Birthday” this weekend!

New Butterfly Notions Set Fluttering to Stitches West

This brand new flutterby Stitch Marker and Holder Set is designed to alight gracefully on your project, with your yarn choice creating beautiful and colorful wings as you work.

You may have noticed by now that I love butterflies (if the logo didn’t make it obvious, I’ll share that fact now!). To me, butterflies symbolize all that I hope to be — they’re kind, hopeful, friendly and far tougher than they look. The metamorphosis they undergo is a comfort to me as it means that even though change can be scary, the glorious results are often worth it in the end.

The large butterfly holds stitch markers or progress keepers. It also has a lobster clasp for easy attachment to a necklace or zipper pull.

The small butterflies are removable stitch markers can be used as progress keepers, track number of repeats, count rows and mark increase/decrease rows.

These flutterbys are ready to fly off to a new home! Do you have a project for them to land on?

See these butterflies in person at Stitches West in booth 513.

Participating in the Stitch Marker Swap at Stitches West? The small flutterbies in special colors are what will be available to swap.

Yarn and Project Bags from BaaBerry Farms

You might not know it where you are, but things are hopping in the middle of Nebraska at BaaBerry Farms. Debi, the owner and shepherdess is also the brains behind the shop, which primarily specializes in project bags and hand-dyed yarn.

Debi designs her project bags from a process of creating the ultimate bag. They are unique and highly functional. For example, her Uptown Bags are a medium-large wedge shaped bag that is fully lined and has interior pockets and wrist straps. They are sized generously for medium to larger projects, too! I have one and it quickly became one of my favorite bags. Debi also has an eye for fun and unusual fabrics!

Most of Debi’s yarns are mill spun from her flock and then hand dyed by her. She has also just launched a new line of worsted weight sock kits! Each kit includes a skein of yarn and a coordinating mini. These will make fun house socks! I have been working with her angora merino blend yarn and it is so soft and warm.

FiberCrafty is a marketplace with many more independent shops all specializing in supplying the fiber community. Do you follow us on Instagram? It’s a great way to see what’s new in our shops!
