You have until midnight Eastern time tonight to preorder Stephanie’s radiant Acadia Lights colorway (pictured here in both Solitary fingering and Golden Goose DK) for the Indie Untangled Knitting Our National Parks project!
If you don’t already know about the project, Stephanie is one of several dyers creating exclusive-to-IU colorways inspired by photos of U.S. national parks. Acadia Lights recreates a rare scene of the Northern Lights over Acadia National Park in Stephanie’s native Maine. 10% of all sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation.
Julia of Pandia’s Jewels is celebrating one of the best literary couples of all time with colorways inspired by the Pemberley Estate — where Elizabeth Bennet’s and Mr. Darcy’s love story began. The seven Regency 5th edition colors, part of a series of yarns inspired by Jane Austen, all work together to create a lovely seven-color fade. They’re available to preorder through next Sunday, March 4.
It’ll be 5 o’clock somewhere when Laura of Slipped Stitch Studios has her Breakfast of Champions update, with fun ice cream- and beer-themed project bags and accessories. It all starts at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.
Literature nerd alert: The second edition of the Pandia’s Jewels Regency Collection, inspired by the world of Jane Austen, is out. Colors in this collection include Lydia has run away! from Pride and Prejudice, Have you heard about Jane Fairfax & Mr. Churchill? from Emma and Mr. Ferrars is no longer engaged to Miss Steele from Sense and Sensibility.
I’m always impressed by the awesome themed handmade knitting accessories out there. So, for the holidays, I thought I’d compile a list of small gifts that you could purchase for your favorite knitter, whatever they’re into. Or, if you’re that not-so-subtle recipient, send this post to some gift-givers.
Also, Marisabel of A Needle Runs Through It has generously offered to give away a set of her Gilmore Girls stitch markers to one lucky reader. To enter, comment on this blog post with your favorite Gilmore Girls episode by the end of the day Sunday, Dec. 18.
