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’m blaming these socks for the morning hand/arm numbness I’ve been waking up with lately. I guess knitting tightly on size 0s for several sessions each day is too much to ask. I took a break last night and I could already tell the difference. I’m putting these bad boys in time out for a while, and keeping an eye on it. I’m going to lay off knitting for a day (BOO) and I promise to have it checked out if it doesn’t improve with a rest. Pinkie swear!
In June, Kirsten Kapur, the designer behind Through the Loops, hosted a shawl mystery knit-along. As soon as I saw that the design called for 500yd and that she used a gradient, I was in! I happened to have a Corrie Sock striping set second that needed a sample knit.
I loved knitting this shawl! The lace patterns flow into each other nicely from clue to clue, but they’re not so complicated that you can’t see where you go off track (which only happened a couple of times.) I initially wished I had only used half my red mini skein for the first clue, but I’ve grown to like the purple bind-off edge.
I’m getting ready to release a new colorway line in September. To make some room, I’m discontinuing some colorways and moving others to dyed-to-order only. If they’re not in stock now, you will be able to order any of the discontinued colorways dyed-to-order from now until August 31, 2014.
Colorways to be discontinued:
Gag Me With A Spoon
Under A Big Umbrella
The Annual Big Summer Sale will go into effect on August 1, 2014. Everything in stock (including Clearance items!) will be 15% off all month. Stay tuned for hints, and sneak peeks of the new colorway line!
