Well…time has done that thing that it does so very well and has flown by. Next week is my birthday and since the whole ~ I made it through cancer thing ~ I am a firm believer in celebrating every single year I am here! So… my lovely knitting friends this is what 61 years on the planet feels like to me in color on yarn!!
“It’s my party and I’ll dye what I want to!”
It’s bright and happy and fun!!
All three things I am looking to add more of into my life this year!! It has speckles and droplets and then slashes of color through out with just enough white space to showcase it all!! I am pretty tickle with it! I am balling up a skein to take with my to Port Townsend this weekend for my birthday vacation with my buddies and the ocean!! ( Excited!!)
We are also celebrating with a SALE!!
All yarns and roving from this very moment until midnight Pacific time on the 30th will be 15% off!!!
You will need the following code to get the discount: tinasbdaybash18
One of the best ever birthday presents is the release for this movie this weekend!! So excited!! And as promised! Your SOLO colorways! I started our Star Wars color tribute with the theme of this story since it is a prequel! It was a bit of a challenge. It’s truly not that easy to dye a skein of yarn to look like a space ship.
I have been trying to pick a favorite and I fluctuate between Chewie and the Falcon but also Lando… . I love that little bit of bright yellow popping out of all of those darker saturated hues! Stay tuned for lots more Star Wars themed colorways.
Our contest winner are: Alice, Karen, KT34, Leann and Kellie. We will be emailing you next week for address verification. Or if you like you can email us @firstname.lastname@example.org
Okay so a few more things we have going!
Soft Rock is a light fingering-weight 2 ply yarn made from the same fiber base that we use for our beloved Socks that Rock yarns! Our goal was a yarn that had a lot of the wonderful attributes of our signature sock yarn, but with a little less of a twist and a little more drape. Since our goal with Soft Rock is not a sock yarn, we can lighten up on the the twist of the ply which gives us a more relaxed yarn for shawls and cowls and such!! Soft Rock still has a nice elasticity and also rocks, just not for socks!!
Tour de Sock starts on June first and we are part of that fun again this year! Yay!!! Here is our new colorway for this year.
We are also going to be participating in Tour de Fleece with a coupon code and all. Maggie is setting up a group.
A few other things….

We will be shipping Sock Club at the end of next week! So if you have address changes please do let us know!

Okay so I know I have more but this is the most important and I now have a few more additions to my list before I can leave here.
