Interstellar Yarn Travel Set

My Interstellar Yarn Travel Set was inspired by NASA’s efforts to colonize Mars and some of the things I would personally want when knitting or crocheting my next project as I travel among the stars. This small kit will contain three full skeins of either my Snug Base or Delight DK base yarn, an exclusive cotton tote bag, and matching set of stitch markers. Colors include- Sheep In Space (white with speckles), Stellar Nursery (blue with speckles) and Echos Through Time (blue/gray tonal). And I have dyed the colors so that they can be used together or separately depending on your intended project.

I will have a small number of each set available in the preorder collection on my website starting at 10 a.m. EST on Saturday June 22 through 8 p.m. EST on Friday June 28th. All preorders will ship some time in August.

Hello from Colorshow Creative!

I have always loved to create! In high school I sewed my own clothes, my mother and grandmother taught me to crochet as a child, and I am a self-taught knitter and quilter. The colors and textures of fabric and yarn inspire me as do other indie dyers. I am now offering yarn and other items on my Etsy store. I look forward to your visit!

June Knitting Season is Here!

  • A woman wears a pink and grey cropped sweater with an orange skirt.

Happy June from Pancake and Lulu Yarn, aka PLY! I love changing seasons and for us here on this half of the planet, summer has just about arrived.

For me knitting is always in season, and with summer, I feel like a fresh start is in order, so I am in a casting-on frenzy at the moment. This is due to finishing three sweaters in the last week! Here I am showing off my Soldotna Crop. It seemed like this was literally a “must knit” this spring, didn’t it? I have had some requests for kits, so they are coming to my shop soon.

Another little finished object is my Tincture Hat. I knit this up in three days as part of Andrea Mowry’s Memorial Day Shift-Along Challenge. It was a lot of fun participating in this tradition for the first time and I am very pleased with this quick knit. I will soon be stocking kits for this project as well.

Check out the delightful Yellow Owl Stitch Markers and Abacus Bracelets available in my shop. The glass beads are adorable as well as functional and totally snag-free!

Jade is my favorite new semi-solid color in my shop, available on any of my 18 full skein or five mini bases and Merino fiber for spinning or felting. It is a cool and refreshing green and perfect for colorwork and would make a pretty summer tee.

I want to thank all of you who have signed up for my 2019 Advent Mini Calendars. I have been blown away by all the early sign ups. There are still some pre-order slots available in my shop!

New June projects for me include another Caitlin Hunter pattern, Sipila, shown here with Navy as the main color and a one-of-a-kind sparkly club colorway as the contrasting color — join my yarn club for these exclusives! Other cast-ons: a Cocoknits shell top called Gretel and the new Ochre Cardigan by Ambah O’Brien. Follow along on my Instagram for daily updates on my projects kits and yarns. Enjoy the new season of knitting!

Summer is upon us and the lambing season is finally done. If you are looking for a lightweight yarn to knit with this summer, our hand-dyed wool, linen and silk blend is perfect. I just finished Wave by Kristen Finlay with our wool, linen and silk blend and it knit up beautifully.
