  • Color of The Eras Yarn Club - Month Three - The 1940s

    I will be in Scotland this week attending the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, but sign-ups for the next installment of the Color of The Eras Yarn Club -- The 1940s -- are scheduled to go live this Thursday at 10:00 am PST. For the past two installments I have put up sign-ups at two different times, but this time I will put up sign-ups at 10am, and leave them up all day. I hope you can join in! The 1940s has to be my favorite period of history, and I'm so excited to be creating a color inspired by this fascinating era.
  • What's happening this week

    (No, I won't be selling yarn made from Scottish Highland Cattle...but wouldn't that be cool?)

    I'm still here in the Seattle area, and my bovine neighbors are really getting me excited for my trip to Scotland next week. In the meantime, there is a lot to do. 

    There will be a shop update this week at the usual time -- Thursday at 4pm PST. It won't be huge, but I will have more sock sets, Doune, Pigwidgeon, Goldberry, and a few other colors (maybe some new ones as well!)

    If you signed up for the Roaring Twenties installment of my Color of The Eras Yarn Club, your yarn will be shipped out this Friday or Saturday, so be on the lookout in your email inboxes for a shipping notification. HINT: the color is inspired by one of my favorite characters from Downton Abbey. 

  • Shop Update: Thursday, March 1st at 4pm PST (7pm EST)

    This week's update will be quite large, so I hope you can find something you love!

    Most colors will be on Cabin DK, Fife, Fir, and Bracken.

    And here are just a few...

  • Color of The Eras Yarn Club Month Two - The Roaring Twenties!

    The sign-ups for the second month of the yarn club go live today, Thursday, at 10:00 am PST and also at 4:00 pm PST (just to give those in different time zones the opportunity to get in).

    What it is:

    A three month yarn club inspired by some of my favorite historical eras. Each month I will dye up a special colorway inspired by the era and ship it to you. The color will be a mystery, and won't be released to non-yarn club members until at least three months after the club. First month - The Victorian Era. Second month - The Roaring 20's. Third Month - The War Years (1940's).

    How my clubs work:

    Typically, yarn clubs are between three and six months, and you must sign up and pay for all of the months at once. But my clubs are different in that you sign up for one month at a time. I will open sign ups for the next two months towards the middle of February and March. I do this because I am just a one-woman show with no sick leave or employees, and in case of an unexpected health or personal emergency, I want to be sure I can dye and ship the yarn on-time. 

    When will the club ship?

    I will ship each month's colorway during the first half of the month. So, The Roaring Twenties will ship during the first half of March. 

    What bases are available?

    I like to give you an option for which base you'd like, so you can choose between Cabin DK, Fife Fingering, or Fir Merino Singles.

    Will the colors from all three months look good together?

    I can't guarantee that all three colors will go together in a single project like a shawl. Because I am doing different eras, I want to be sure I have the freedom to create three unique colors that go with that era specifically. 

    What if I miss the sign-ups for one month?

    If you sign up for any of the three months throughout the club and would like one of the colors that you may have missed, you can contact me and I will gladly dye up it up for you!
