New at BeesyBee Fibers

  • Skeins of plum and orange variegated yarn

Hello there! It has been a while since I updated my shop with hand-dyed yarn. As you can imagine, I’m very excited about this update. Maybe because we are at the end of summer, and I felt the need of starting a new knitting project, but I didn’t want to start another Fall season without offering hand-dyed yarn in the shop.

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!
