What to stash this week: So long and farewell with a sale

A knitting needle case filled with wooden needles.

Stephanie of Rock Solid Designs has made the difficult decision to close her business. As a thank you to her loyal customers and friends, she will be having a closeout sale. Everything in stock is 40% off, which makes this a great time to grab your favorite project bags or pattern storage solutions.

A gray and yellow shawl.

Erika of Liverpool Yarns created a sample of her Linglestown Shawl, which combines garter stitch, stripes, ribbing and a traditional Shetland lace pattern, in her Fawn and Buttercup colorways — which just so happen to be Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2021. She also now has her 100% Shetland yarns in mini skeins.

What to stash this week: Wrapped up in love

A pink shawl on a white fleece pillow.

A year ago, I asked Bronwyn, AKA Casapinka, during our VKL NYC brunch if she was interested in working her magic on Julie Asselin’s Nurtured Aran-weight yarn, and to my delight she said she was! Bronwyn is ready to release her Powder Wrap, a cozy boomerang-style shawl that features a mix of textures and provides just the right amount of complexity, while still being fairly mindless and meditative.

I’ve made seven-skein bundles of Nurtured available in a number of colors, including the Indie Untangled exclusive Leaf Pile, a complex dusty pink that you can see in my WIP above. The Leaf Pile will ship out shortly, while you can preorder a few other colors to arrive in time for the shawl release in early February.

Woolen and teal and pink hearts with the words Best Fiber Friend.

Speaking of friendships, I’m giddy with excitement about this collaboration with the Katrinkles crew! For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to celebrate our wonderful community and came up with this idea that takes inspiration from the vintage way of showing your devotion to your BFF — which stands for Best Fiber Friend, of course! 

These fobs provide the perfect hole-free flare for your project bag(s). You can preorder them in cherrywood and two colors of mirrored acrylic through Wednesday, January 20. Best of all, if you don’t want to wait until you see your bestie in person, I can ship one half directly to them for a small extra fee!

Flowers surround a banner reading Sheep loves me, sheep loves me not.

Kate of McMullin Fiber Co is counting down to Valentine’s Day with a 14-mini-skein package inspired by some of our favorite love songs and breakup anthems. Oh, and it comes with chocolate!

A white bag with magenta sheep surrounded by bright green yarn.

It is still January, and Crista Jaeckel is marking this month with free shipping on all her bags, crafted with one-of-a-kind block printed fabric, through January 31.

What to stash this week: Giving and receiving

A cotton bag with an orange and brown flower pattern filled with orange-labeled beauty products.

Kismet of Lolo Body Care is passionate about giving back. Throughout the year, aside from soothing crafters’ skin with moisturizing body bars, lip balm and face lotion, the company also supports several non-profit organizations, including making a donation to One Tree Planted, which fights climate change by planting trees, every time a LoLo Eco-Bag is purchased. For this holiday season, Kismet has extended that promotion to every order. 

In addition, 5% of all Lolo Body Care holiday sales will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, which supports and builds affordable housing. 

A skein of gray yarn speckled with gold on top of a ball of navy yarn.

I brought together super soft Cashmere yarn from fellow Brooklynites Rebecca Kevelson of Clinton Hill Cashmere and Geraldine Yang of The Wandering Flock for my Cashmenorah hat. I think this combination of bespoke yarn and unique hand-dyed would look beautiful in so many other mosaic hat patterns, so I’m offering the yarn as a bundle and including one discounted pattern of your choice. Check out my pattern suggestions here. I’m currently working on using these yarns together for a mosaic constellations hat, so if that intrigues you, snag the yarn while it’s still available!

A green sweater with multicolored bobbles.

Stephanie Earp has released a fun sweater design that’s perfect for mini skeins or playing with leftovers — or get a dyed-to-order kit from dyer Annie Paaren. The Bobble Buster sweater comes in both kids and adult sizes, and Stephanie is hosting a cast-on party over on Instagram in the New Year.

A golden mountain reflected in a lake, and light blue yarn speckled with gold and purple.

Rachel of Six and Seven Fiber’s wintry Grand Teton-inspired colorway is available to preorder on Indie Untangled through next Sunday, December 27 on three bases: Alfalfa, a luxurious 80/10/10 Superwash Merino/Cashmere/nylon heavy fingering-weight yarn, and Amaranth and Soybean, two rustic but soft non-Superwash Merino fingering and DK-weight yarns that would make excellent sweaters.

Six mini skeins of gray, white, purple and aqua yarn.

This set of Julie Asselin’s Nurtured yarn, a unique blend of Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino that Julie and Jean-François hand dye before it’s spun at Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont, is definitely one of my favorites, with the aqua Picnic and deep plum Tisane that brings out the pinks in the special Leaf Pile colorway (third from the top).

This is one of three color combinations available in the Nurtured Mini Boxes from Indie Untangled. These sets come with six mini skeins so you can try out this rustic Aran-weight yarn and see the nuanced colors in real life. The boxes are available to preorder only through January 8.

Champagne glasses and confetti in jewel tones.

After packaging and shipping out 100+ new year countdown boxes, and auctioning one off the benefit the American Nurses Foundation, Inc., I have several extra goodies that I decided to put together in mini mystery packs. You’ll receive four 20g, 87-92-yard, fingering-weight mini skeins dyed in coordinating jewel tones and one non-yarn goodie. (Please note that these packages are not individually wrapped and will ship on December 28.)

Stitch markers in red and white peppermint candy colors.

If you need a last minute stocking stuffer, Amanda of Doodle Dew Designs has some Christmas stitch markers left! This includes markers made with real candy canes and with fun holiday colors.

What to stash this week: Peak yarn

A golden mountain reflected in a lake, and light blue yarn speckled with gold and purple.

For the latest installment of Knitting Our National Parks, Rachel of Six and Seven Fiber takes us to Grand Teton National Park, which I was lucky to visit in May of 2019 (which seems like ages ago). Her Jenny Lake colorway was inspired by the above photo taken by photographer Brian Johns.

This lightly speckled neutral is available to preorder on Indie Untangled through December 27 on three bases: Alfalfa, a luxurious 80/10/10 Superwash Merino/Cashmere/nylon heavy fingering-weight yarn, Amaranth, a toothy but soft non-Superwash Merino fingering (this one is my personal favorite) and Soybean, a non-Superwash Merino DK. Alfalfa would make amazing winter accessories, while the latter two are the perfect sweater yarns.

Speaking of non-Superwash yarns, designer Mary Annarella used Julie Asselin’s Nurtured yarn in the special Indie Untangled Leaf Pile colorway to design not just one but two new hats! The one above, with the zig zag purl pattern, is called Swipe Right (which means, in the world of Tinder dating, that you’re interested).

Mary’s other hat, called Take a Bough, has an elegant cable pattern reminiscent of pine trees and is a perfect match for the colorway, which is indeed like jumping into a leaf pile. The links above will take you to kits for the hat featuring this exclusive colorway, and they are discounted through Monday, December 14, no coupon code needed.

I also invite you to explore this incredible yarn further…

Skeins of gray, white, pink and gold yarn.

When I first learned about Julie Asselin’s Nurtured yarn — a rustic but soft blend of Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino that is hand dyed “in the wool” prior to being mill spun at Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont — it was love at first sight… through my computer monitor. Fortunately, when I finally got a chance to see it in person at a yarn festival, I was even more smitten — enough to ask Julie and her partner Jean-François to create a special colorway for Indie Untangled. 

Since we don’t have the ability to feel yarn in person at festivals, and I want everyone to discover the joy of knitting with Nurtured, I’m excited to collaborate with Julie and Jean-François on Nurtured Mini Boxes. These sets will allow you to try out this woolly Aran-weight yarn and see the incredible heathered colors in real life.

The boxes are available to preorder on Indie Untangled through January 8 and will ship in mid-March, allowing time for Julie and Jean-François to create mini skeins to order and for cross-border shipping.

Six knitted sweater designs on a diverse group of models.

I was so excited to see that Abbye and Selena of the design duo Wool & Pine, who I enjoyed learning more about during Indie Untangled Everywhere in October, had published their first pattern collection. I’m even more thrilled to be a stockist of this special new book! Featuring Wool & Pine’s first six garments, this softcover book is filled with beautiful images and size-inclusive patterns with written and charted directions. It also includes a digital download code and access to detailed video tutorials to help you knit your perfect sweater.

Blue and white speckled yarn.

The cold whether inspired Lanivendole’s Winter Mood palette, which will be available in Giulia and Stefania’s online shop today starting at 6 p.m. CET. There will also be limited edition handmade stitch markers from their friend Carla of @laboratorioindie.

Multicolored skeins of yarn and faux fur pom-poms.

What to stash this week: knitting the light

You should have enough time to knit your Cashmenorah hat and then “light the candles” by using duplicate stitch. ⁣You can order your Cashmenorah kit with luxurious Cashmere from Clinton Hill Cashmere and The Wandering Flock through Indie Untangled.

A red, yellow and white crescent shawl.

Caroline of The Noble Thread didn’t hesitate when Andrew and Jennifer of Australia-based Great Southern Yarn asked her to design a shawl for them. This husband and wife team, who you’ll read more about below, create sustainable, ethically produced, 100% Australian yarn that is hand dyed in vibrant colors. Caroline, who’s based in North Carolina, took inspiration from ancient sea creatures from the vast ocean between here and there to create Amonite, an elegant crescent-shaped shawl knit in cosy DK-weight yarn. 

Colorful hanks of yarn hanging untwisted.

Jennifer and Andrew, who you “met” above, founded Great Southern Yarn four years ago. They single-origin source their fleece from ethical producers and run their own mob, in Aussie terms, of Merino sheep at Mount Bodangora, near Dubbo, New South Wales. They have two ultra-soft yarn bases: 100% Merino and their GSY Blend, which is 50% Merino and 50% alpaca, a mix of Huacaya alpaca from southern Tasmania and Suri alpaca from Banjo Ridge at Dungog, New South Wales.

What to stash this week: Lighting the way to winter

A woman models a blue and gray beanie next to columns.

I’m thrilled to release Cashmenorah, a mosaic beanie that brings together luxurious Cashmere from Rebecca Kevelson of Clinton Hill Cashmere and Geraldine Yang of The Wandering Flock, both fellow Brooklynites. I have long wanted to get a chance to work with Rebecca, who is also Jewish, and I came up with the idea to combine her bespoke Cashmere yarn with Geraldine’s hand-dyed. I also wanted to create a Hanukkah design that was sophisticated and not overly kitschy, but still representative of this holiday that is defined by hope, patience and light in the midst of darkness. 

You can purchase kits for Cashmenorah, as well as the pattern only, in the Indie Untangled shop.

Knit gray mice in red and white sweaters.
