I am in the place of my heart for 5 whole days!! Seriously happy and can think of no better way to celebrate 60 years of being. Going to spend a whole lot of time walking on the beach and communing with my friend the ocean and playing with my buddies Karen and Michael. Yup, pretty happy.
New colorways are up!!!! ( Actually I thought they were but they are not. They will be in a few hours)
I am a big Guardians of the Galaxy fan so of course I had to translate that love onto yarn! I have been torturing everyone I know with ” I am Groot” texts. Baby Groot is beyond charming and seriously adorable!
I have also added a new Tipsy to our Tipsy Clan, Delilah Dixie Tipsy. Delilah Dixie has a a fiery rebellious streak that is sure to burn a little if you happen get on her wrong side. Otherwise she is loyal to a fault and the fiercest friend a girl could ask for!
And.. last but not least my ” I made it to 60 bitches!” birthday colorway.
As usual there’s a bit of the back story on this one based on a text exchange with Shannon.
I went with it! Stared with the color that flows through my veins Pond Scum and added it’s bestie Deep Unrelenting Grey and then went from there riding the line between muddy and sassy! I think I got it. I love it quite a bit and…it goes with last years birthday colorway depraveDyer’s Birthday Sprinkles pretty well and is most definitely pond-scummy dirty as Shanno suggested.
The mug is one of the mugs in our giveaway!!!
I am reposting the fun and games info from last week!!!
Okay now unto the fact that on May 29th I turn 60 years old. I know…how did that happen. Actually I am pretty thrilled to be here to turn 60 so I am celebrating with everything that I have and I would love for you to join me. Some of what I have a lot of is, love and gratitude laced with a fair bit of quirky. So we are going to be spreading both of these around in the next week.
One of the ways we are going to do this is that everyone person who order from this moment in time until midnight May 31st gets a love note postcard from me in their package with a 10% off coupon good for your next order! We will also be randomly choosing from all of those orders 6 of you that win a skein of Socks that Rock of your choosing in a wonderful JAMPDX mug. We will also be choosing another 4 that will win a skein of our Yaksi Fingeringweight yarn in the color of your choice in a lovely Queen Bee bag! I know! I totally want to win these!
And…if that were not enough and it is not. We are also doing daily instagram giveaways with sharing themes like favo color and movies and such. Here is our instagram feed.
It’s been awhile since we had a tell me your color story and I will make you a colorway game so we are going to do that here on the blog.
What you do is tell me a color story. I love a good story!!! I am not going to give you any limits this time. It can be any kind of story as long as you are descriptive.
Try not to make it too long. I am in the process of training three new dyers so my attention span is a little low at the end of the day. Also that whole turning 60 thing!! You have until June 1st. Then I will choose 4 of these stories and I will create them in living color on yarn and then send you a skein!!
Okay I think that covers everything I wanted to share.
I hear the ocean calling and who am I to keep the ocean waiting?!
Thank you all for all of the love and birthday wishes!
Have a great weekend!
