Over the past few weeks, the Indie Untangled marketplace has been filling with posts from more than a dozen incredibly talented dyers and crafters. And while I was tempted to scoop up nearly everything, don’t worry—there is plenty available for you to buy.
Here’s the first round-up of some of the shop updates, sales and sign-ups you should pounce on:
Pictured above is Sunday Best, a new base by UK-based dyer The Uncommon Thread (seen here in the Lust colorway). It’s one of three new luxury bases being introduced in a shop update TODAY at 4 p.m. BST (that’s 5 hours ahead of EST).
You’ll learn more about Vicki of That Clever Clementine in the near future, but for now, visit her Etsy store on Monday, when she’ll be updating it with even more bags, pouches and bowls in some super-cute fabrics.
Sign-ups for The Woolen Rabbit‘s 2014 yarn club opened April 1 and there are still spots left! Sign up here. There are some really talented designers involved and, of course, access to new colorways and patterns that remain exclusive for six months after the shipment.
The Fish Belly Fiber Works Etsy shop will be updated on Sunday, April 6 at 7 p.m. with lots of lightweight yarns, including a new base. Brook is a 70% superfine superwash Merino, 30% silk lace-weight yarn. With 1,000 yards, the pattern possibilities are endless.
Prepare for indecisive spring weather by knitting a pair of X-Mitts (pictured above), a design by Toby Roxane Barna. Dirty Water DyeWorks has added X-Mitts kits to their shop. The yarn is a blend of alpaca, Merino and silk and comes in a variety of colors.
Kettle Yarn Co., also out of the UK, has some very spring-y colors of Islington, a superwash BFL/silk fingering, for sale on Etsy. The yarn was used in a sample of Meghan Fernandes’ Waterlily pattern, which was on the cover of the most recent Pompom Quarterly.
And, finally, you have until July to get 15% off buttons from Melissa Jean Design in honor of the Indie Untangled launch, but I’m sure many of you have sweaters and other projects that need some “closure.”
