Update

  Hi Kiddies, just a quick update! Last "dye day" turned into a dye week ya'll know we love to dye so no complaints here. We did up all the KAL orders, custom orders and did up a bunch of YF OOAK 100% cashmere. All of it shipped out last week in THREE massive mailing sacks that USPS has for bulk mailing.
   We accidentally purchased our high end yak blend in DK instead of sock weight. This is 60/20/20 SWMerino/yak/silk, completely and entirely luxurious, would make an amazing sweater. Normally $31.50 ea, if you want all of it, wheeling and dealing time.  Anyone interested in this should PM me to talk about what can be done with this base. It goes saturated real well.
  By the way, if you ever need any yarn for any project, do keep us in mind. The yarn on the right was made up for a special Christmas shawl. We can match any color and have more bases then almost all small Indies who only carry just three-five. Not only can we paint anything but our pricing is normally, well below market value. Quality, value, who could ask for more.

UPCOMING

  • We have at least one more shawl this year which is rapidly taking shape, Madame Du Pompadour ALA Doctor Who. This is going to be worked in a heavy lace weight, light colors, crystals and sparkly beads to do her justice.
  • The design for Maleficent keeps going back to the scrape heap but she's still plugging in and making an appearance from time to time.
  • ADVENTurous kits are all ready have a look see.
  • The Holiday club will open early November in order to give you all a chance to get in timely. We will allow for the the shipping date of December 15 for USA, earlier for International orders.
  • Breed Study 3 is shaping up plus we have some CVM in a lovely deep, dark Twilight color that's so amazing. These will be bagged up in little 1 oz like the Rambo Rainbows.
  • Boutique is now open, we are making hats, woven scarves, collars, fingerless gloves and the like, small gifts in time for your Holiday shopping. Just in case you run out of knitting time. These are all one of a kind items, each artistically decorated in curly locks. If you'd like to see more stay tuned.
  • There's a new sale addition for us. Seems we are having a Black Friday sale but if there's anything you have to have before then I recommend snapping it up, especially the YF OOAK as they just can't be repeated.
2018 year long KAL's are in everyone's mind here. The blanket is amazing! We have a Baltimore Album quilt style blanket. This one is so much fun, some 3-D, some lace work, all so completely different from anything we've done in the past. The typical quilt would look something like this... but we are working towards getting a large center with radiating borders instead of blocks.
2018 Heirloom year long KAL has us finally getting to Tangiers. The design has the feel of the lovely tile work with the desert all around you. The colors are a golden turmeric and a dark night blue so far. Do let me know if you have a color idea. Looks like it's a square, possibly center diamond, not positive about that just yet. What we are positive about is the base, this year we are moving back up to a fine lace weight. Cheers all around. At 2/28nm it's still fine enough to get the job done. This super luxurious yarn is 55% silk/45% cashmere, for superior drape and hand... this one's just begging to be worked.
  Well Kiddies, I must away, packing up 64 mini 1 ounce bags for our contribution to the Spinning Box. Have a great week.
