2017

Happy New Year!

I just reopened the shop and I am happy to announce the return of some old favorites to the base yarn line-up for 2017. Take a look at the Yarns list in the Gallery drop-down menu to see my working list for the year. 

I want to mention MCN Worsted today, because it is the base that was requested the most in emails I received throughout 2016. This time around, I am making new custom skeins with more yardage. It's the same yarn - 80% SW Merino/10% Cashmere/10% Nylon that I offered previously, with about 25 or so more yards per skein. There are 16 colorways available in the shop right now.

If you haven't used this base before, you are in for a treat. This is a plump, round yarn that is soft and smooth. It has nice elasticity and bounce. I am currently blocking a sweater I knit for my niece in the Retro Aqua colorway. I'll post about it soon.

November Sale

Just a reminder that the the 15% discount code THANKYOU is valid throughout November! 

I've added hundreds of skeins to the shop this month and will be wrapping up for the year very soon. I will add a few more listings before the month is over, but the bulk of my new inventory is now in the shop or has been sold.  If you see something you like, you might want to pick it up now because it won't be restocked this year.

The shop will remain open through much of December and then close briefly as I prepare for 2017.  Look for the next newsletter and blog post in late December or early January. 

Here are some recent additions to the shop:

New yarn!

Polwarth

Polwarth is a light DK weight yarn made from 100% superwash New Zealand Polwarth wool. I've just added 24 colorways to the shop. Look for more in the coming weeks.

I love working with this new yarn. I recently completed a Starboard pullover for my niece in the Fog colorway. 

I also made her a Wood Hollow Hat using the Opal colorway. The smoothness and luster really make the cables and textures pop.
