I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday! it was small quiet and lovely here! Peaceful and fun, one of my favorite combo’s right now. Lot’s of puppy time with Siena who is growing by leaps and bounds and is probably one of the most affectionate dogs I have been around. She loves to snuggle and loves laps which is going to be interesting soon since she’s a golden retriever and it looks like she is going to be a big one. Look at those paws!
Okay so we have a few exciting things I need to share with you besides puppy photos.
Today is Black Friday and for a few years now I have been wanting to put our Ravens and Fledges on special for this day. Since you know… they are colors washed in black ( ravens ) and grey ( fledges ).
I thought it was not possible to discount colorways on our ancient beast of a website but it turns out it is! So thanks to a little push from Maggie today ( Black Friday ) all of our Raven and Fledge colorways are discounted 10% in all bases!!
The code you need for this 10% discount is : BLACKFRIDAY17
If you need a little tempting here is our Valkyrie Fledge one of my very favorite colorways knit in Plushy, one of my favorite yarns. (The pattern Maggie is knitting is The Age of Brass and Steam by Orange Flower Yarn. ) All of the Raven colorways look great in pretty much all of our bases but I think they are especially wonderful for our garment yarns and make stunning sweaters!!
Which is great since one of the other specials is a new yarn. I kid you not!
Super Targhee is seriously sexy blend of super-wash Targhee ( 80%) and Tussah Silk (20%) in a round and lofty DK weight, 4 ply yarn.
Super Targhee is a small run so when this lot is gone, it is gone! We have about 400 pounds of it so it will go quick. I’m a big fan and those of you who have been wanting us to have a super wash garment yarn here is it is, if only for a short time. Maggie has been swatching it and and we dyed up some in Heckley Speckley and she says she definitely is going to needs a few sweaters worth it is that lovely.
Our supplier has gifted us with quite the deal on this beauty and we are passing that along to you, our lovely knitters!
450 yd skeins for 26.00 a skein. Most DK yarns are come in 250 or so yd skeins and run that price or higher. So quite the deal indeed!
In a land where I have knitting time I would knit all my family hats for Christmas out of the Super Targhee wonder of a yarn. (Insert uproarious laughter here) We’ll see how that goes!
Here it is knit in a shaded solid with cables…
…and then below is Maggies Heckley Speckley swatch. It’s hard to tell in pictures but that Tussah Silk really shimmers when it catches the light so I htink darker colorways will be stunning like maybe a raven. (see that)
The other special we are running from today, the Friday that is Raven Black, until Cyber Monday is some Blue Moon Golden Ticket fun! I like this because no matter what you order you win! How it works is this: every order that is placed this from now until the end of Cyber Monday will get a golden ticket included in your package when we ship your yarn. The tickets will be fun and will have discounts on them running from 10% to 40%. Who know which one you will get which is exciting. A surprise! There will be a code on your ticket for that discount so you will need to keep it so you have it when you order next. The discount is good for a one time use on yarns anytime in the next 6 months.
A whole lot of colorful woolly knit goodness to be had!
A few notes:
We are shipping out this week both the sock club and the school of yarn so if you have an address change please do let us know soon!!
We have shipped out the Rockin’ Whorl Club and the pdf’s will be coming on Monday! I love this color soooooo much!
When you order if you are ordering for holiday knitting if you cold let us know in the comments section of your order that would be great!
Last but not least THANK YOU!! You are the best and we are truly blessed to have you all in our lives!
Okay I am off to tag and ship and deliver yarn. I will leave you with this shot of Siena and one of her fav places to be, my feet.
