And to help spark your inspiration – I’ve put together a few palettes in some of my favorite yarns using colors that are part of our HUGE summer yarn sale.

 

Stroll Fingering (up to 35% off)

I just love this bright and cheerful color palette! It reminds me of my childhood, which was filled with Jem and the Holograms, My Little Ponies and hours spent making drawings with my Spirograph – only this time, there’s a touch of grey added in to represent my adulthood staple shade: grey.

Holiday Haul!

I’m usually not terribly tempted by sales, but this year I just had to treat myself to the limited edition Wool of the Andes colors that we had for Cyber Monday! Apparently I wasn’t the only one who had that idea, considering that by the time I placed my order, one color was sold out and two more were just a few skeins away. So, I got what I could!

And it was a lot.wotahaul

The Big Sale 2013: My Top 10 Picks!

By now, most of you have noticed the spectacular sale we have going on (our early-to-the-party answer to Cyber Monday). But the downfall of having over 700 yarns on sale? It always feels like you’ve missed something, no?

With that in mind, I’ve highlighted my Top 10 favorites from this year’s big sale—in dramatic ascending order! Please keep in mind that I’m a lady who loves her neutrals (with little pops of jewel-tones here and there).

10) Capra in “Wine”
$7.99 $3.99/50g  –  85% Merino Wool, 15% Cashmere

My favorite reds always look like they belong in a long-stemmed glass; the combination of this with cashmere feels like some pinnacle of luxury.

For the birds

We love our fine feathered friends here in the Pacific Northwest – thanks to the TV show Porlandia, our unofficial motto is “Put a Bird On It”. So I was delighted to knit and crochet a flock of birds for a great cause.

Our Full Circle yarn line is one of my favorites we’ve come out with – it’s such a soft yarn, a blend of Merino and Highland wools that would have otherwise gone to waste. It works equally well for crochet as well as knit projects. I’ve made dozens of projects in each and just enjoy each stitch – the only sad thing is that it’s only here for such a short time!

And from now until May 1st, we are having a wonderful promotion – for you it’s saving 15% on the entire Full Circle yarn line – worsted, bulky and roving. For our birdie friends, we are donating $1 of every skein sold to our friends at International Bird Rescue! (Make sure you check out all the great works they have done!)

6 Easy Steps to Becoming a Pinterest Model

A pressing public service announcement:

Step 1.) Spend a lot of time on Pinterest—particularly, “researching” project patterns.

Step 2.) Develop a heretofore unnatural obsession with monster infinity scarves; know solidly that having one would complete you/make you a Winter Fairy. Or Faerie.

Step 3.) Get swept up in Knit Picks’ excellent “Free Hank of Biggo” promotion. Let excitement build.

Oh my Biggo!

We’re going a little Biggo
crazy here – if you get our emails (you should!), you’ll know that for
this week, every order over $5 gets you a free hank of squishy,
delectable Biggo yarn!

But what can you do with just one hank, you ask? Well, at 110 yards per 100 gram hank, it doesn’t seem like much – but with Biggo,
a little goes a long way. For instance, it’s plenty enough for some
fatty mittens, a fluffy earflap hat, or this double seed stitch scarf
I’m making for my niece!
