January Shop Update!

To end the first month of 2021 I have a small shop update with several new things.
The first is a series of new colors I am excited to continue producing throughout this year – yarns inspired by my “Tidepool” paintings. Begun in 2017, these paintings are more abstract and fluid in nature than any I had previously done. As such, the yarn colorways have to be dyed just right to achieve this same look. After much experimentation, I have finally settled on a technique and recipe I like and now I’m ready to share. The three new colorways from this series were the first in my series of paintings as well – “Morning Dandelion Moon”, “Green Sea Tears” and “Blooming Violet Gardens.”

The other update to the shop comes from my new monthly yarn club (Which you can still sign up for). Based off of a very early painting by Salvador Dali, “Landscape Near Ampurdan” is a bright sea of blue, broken up by orange, green and yellow. This colorway is available in limited quantities on my “Light” and “DK” base. And as an added bonus, there are also a few complementary tonals available now, too – in the form of yarns dyed strictly with the runoff from my variegated dye techniques. Since I only used the runoff from these colorways, I believe they’d make a great pairing. Look for them as labeled “Turpentine” on my site.

Our Gorgeous Winter Limited Edition Colourways

  • Blue and green yarn.

In the past few months, we created some colourways that are so beautiful and so delightfully winter-y that we’ve decided we just have to share them with you as Limited Editions. “Stillness” and “Late Sun” were first dyed for a couple of virtual shows we attended at the end of last year, and “Quietude” is completely new. And while each on its own is lovely, I think the three together create a winterscape that is downright stunning.

These Limited Edition colourways are available for preorders for a two weeks only, with orders closing on February 4, so that their Dyeing Day can be held shortly after and the skeins sent out once they are dry. Join in with these gorgeous colourways before they disappear!

Linglestown Shawl = Pantone’s Colors of the Year

  • A gray and yellow shawl.

One of our favorite color combinations, yellow and gray (or “grellow” as we like to say), happens to be Pantone’s Colors of the Year. We’ve used both here in our Linglestown Shawl (shown in our Fawn and Buttercup).

The asymmetrical shawl combines garter stitch, stripes, ribbing and the traditional Shetland lace pattern, Crown of Glory. It’s available on our website as a PDF pattern or a kit. The kit includes two skeins of Liverpool Fingering yarn and a printed copy of the pattern. You can choose from the color combinations we’ve put together or pick your own.

Two Mystery Yarn Clubs to Start 2021!

There are three- and six-month options as well as Sock and DK options. The three-month option ships every other month (February, April, June) and the six-month option will ship every month.

The second mystery yarn club is the Great Lakes Mystery Yarn Club. This club runs from February-June 2021 and features colorways inspired by all five Great Lakes: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior. Sock and DK options are available.

2021 Salvador Dali Yarn Club

  • Melted clocks and the words Salvador Dali 2021 Monthly Yarn Club.

As I enter 2021, I have a new set of goals for my yarn business, and one of them that has been brewing for awhile is a monthly yarn club. I’ve gone back and forth on the theme, wanting to do something related to art, and finally decided that I should focus on a single artist who has had an impact on my own artwork, specifically Salvador Dali.

Each month of 2021 I will be creating a yarn colorway inspired by one of his works, starting with his earliest and ending with his last. Each month’s colorway will come with a fun fact card that is all about the work in question and/or his life at that time.

For $35 a month, you will get a skein of yarn, the fun fact card, and one to two small items/notions relating to that month’s color. Furthermore, subscription members will get their choice of yarn base each month and an email will be sent to ask what you’d prefer.

You can subscribe at any time during the year to begin during that month’s color, but there will always be a cutoff date posted. Not sure if you want to subscribe? I will have a limited amount of skeins listed at the end of each month for you to purchase. These WILL NOT come with the added goodies (but will come with the fact card).

All packages will ship the last week of the month, to ensure that I have plenty of time to account for all subscriptions, dye yarn, and find goodies.

The second image on this post shows all of the works, in order, that I plan to use as inspiration this year, and the third image shows the January color. To get in on the start, you must subscribe by January 15th.

Let’s fill our year with yarn and art, and make it a fabulous one!
