I’m gearing up to list some new things including a small selection of 150g Maki, test colorways, and select Maki from the Come as You Are Tripping Yarn Balls club. These special items won’t be included in the 20% off sale, BUT they will be listed at a special price (some more than 20% off!)
Keep an eye out for sneak peeks of the Season 11 Yarn of Letters colorways. They will go live in September!
You guys asked for it and I’ve been working on it. Because of my multi-layered dye process, it’s taken a while, but it’s here: a true gradient rainbow yarn.
I have decided to discontinue the striping Maki, but Loud and Proud will always be available in a mini skein set and on fiber. I will be replacing the striping Rainbow in the Dark with this:
The new yarns and dyed-to-order spots will go live on Monday, April 4 at Noon. To celebrate, in stock rainbow yarns will be on sale for a limited time! I will also be introducing my newest base, Terran Sport Sock a squishy and strong SW Targhee/nylon blend perfect for fast knitting socks.
I finished my Hitofude today (pics to come!) and immediately cast on a Hachure. The red/brown is some Boundless Sock that was a second. It was Fascinator, now it’s a lovely contrast to this orange from the Tripping Yarn Balls Retro Toon yarn club.
This is another sweater with interesting construction; it starts almost like a triangular shawl. I’m kind of excited to see how it goes. I’ll keep you guys posted!
I finished my Askews Me sweater over a month ago and I’ve finally gotten some decent pictures! I loved knitting this.
The foreground yarns were reclaimed from thrift store sweaters. The taupe yarn is 100% merino, and I believe the blue is a wool/acrylic blend. The background yarn is Lion brand Fisherman’s Wool which is suprisingly soft.
I’m not entire sure it’s the best shape for me. I’m kind of bottom heavy so I tend to stick to tops that are more fitted, but this is so comfy and warm that I’ve decided not to care if it’s a bit of tent. And it’s great with skinny jeans and boots.
Good news: I’ve been able to knit with no pain! I’m able to get in several rows in the morning and evening. I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to any marathon knitting sessions, but as long as I can do some knitting, I’m happy. I was going a bit bonkers!
My dog, Layla, really wanted to help me with this photoshoot. I’ve given her the “look” command in the first photo. I have my phone camera set to snap a pic when I say, “cheese.” It’s better than a timer!
I made it through the weekend without doing any knitting. Zero. I did finish spinning and plying 8oz of wool/alpaca/mohair roving from Avalon Springs Farms and I probably shouldn’t have.
I picked up my Hitofude last night and my right hand/forearm felt really tight and unhappy. Strangely, it was my left hand bothering me last week and that seems to be fine since putting those tight socks in time out. So I’m taking a break from knitting AND spinning for the rest of the week. I’m icing, and taking an NSAID, and consoling myself with coloring. I am not one of those people that can veg in front of the tv; my hands are always moving.
Hopefully, a full week of rest will help. I want to get back to this project so I can start a new one. I have so many in my queue!
