  • Shop Update: Thursday, August 31st @4pm PDT

    I've been busy these last few weeks working on a wholesale order for Baad Anna's Yarn Shop in Vancouver, BC, but I promise this hasn't prevented me from continuing to stock my own shop!

    As the three-skein sets for the Vortex Shawl by Charlotte Bory were so popular last week, I will be adding a few more to the shop today. Each set has one skein of Pigwidgeon and Bleak House on Fir Merino Singles, and one skein of Doune on Shilling Silk Merino Singles.

    There will also be Wychwood on both Shilling and Fir

    And Goldberry on Bracken (my new BFL sock yarn) and Fuzz

  • Shop Update August 24th at 4pm PST ( 7pm EST )

    As Autumn is swiftly approaching, I find myself wanting deep, rich, cozy shades. I've also recently learned the brioche stitch, which has opened up a whole new world to me. Suddenly I feel I can play with color in a way that works with my rather minimal wardrobe. 

    This weeks update is inspired by one of my recent cast-ons -- The Vortex Shawl by Charlotte Bory. A truly addictive pattern in rich, earthy colors that I don't want to put down. 

    So, here's what you can expect to see in the shop update today:

  • Shop Update August 17th - WANDER Sock Sets!

    I have been having a blast dyeing up these bright colorways for my new Wander Sock Sets. Not only are these new colors, but this is also a new base, made up of 75% Superwash Merino, and 25% Nylon. It is incredibly soft, and I think it will be such a joy for you to knit with. 

    Each set will have two 50 gram skeins, plus one 20 gram mini.

    I have come up with four colorways inspired by one of my favorite bands -- The Generationals. Typically I listen to folk, bluegrass, and old country swing, so this band is a bit of a departure for me with their 80s New Wave electronic pop sound. But I'm a bit obsessed. I own all their albums on vinyl. And when I saw them in concert here in Seattle a couple years ago, I was like star-struck teenage girl. When I'm feeling a bit down, I blast their music and break out into a cheesy dance.

    The colors below (in order) are "Static On The Radio", "Wildfire Sculpture", "Yours Forever", and "Reading Signs". 

    Just for fun, I may change up the colors for the contrast minis in the future.
