I've got a brand-new podcast that will be featuring shop information about new products, new colorways, KALs and spinalongs, as well as some tidbits on my personal projects as well.  Podcast notes can be found here bi-weekly in conjunction with the podcast itself.  

This week, I talk about the new self-striping sock yarn color, the Rainbowalong, some design projects in the works, as well as some end-of-the-year musings.  More information on specific topics covered in the podcast can be found at:


Suburban Stitcher's website for the Rainbowalong.

The Crevasse pattern page on Ravelry, which will have the updated pattern for the Winter Storm transitional pack on January 1, 2016.

My Handspun Page on Ravelry.

My Instagram Page.  
My Facebook Page.

 

And my personal blog page (where you can view Episode One of the podcast!).

Preorders for the Suburban Stitcher's Rainbowalong 2016 are now available in the shop here!

I've dyed up a gradient on my Arianrhod Sock base with silver, blue gray, sky blue, pink, soft peach and gold. 

Lots of great things in store for 2016!  (Pun intended!) 

  • The Heroines Shawl Club and installment Sweater Club, as well as the handspinner's Fiber Club are all still available for purchase through the end of December, 2015.   The handspinner's club will continue to be offered in quarterly installment options as well during 2016, so you can jump into that one at any time
  • You will also want to stay tuned for more information on a great new gradient colorway and pattern that I'll be releasing as part of the Suburban Stitcher's Rainbowalong for February.  Preorders for this exclusive colorway will go on sale mid-January.  
  • I'm introducing a brand-new (to me) self-striping group of sock yarns.  These colorways will be available for 3 months at a time, but each month I'll have a new colorway to rotate into the mix themed on the gorgeous colors around me here in New Mexico!  We will kick off the first colorway for 2016 with Santa Fe.  Each colorway is available on your choice of one of 4 sock yarn bases, and each skein is custom dyed when you order, so please plan on a couple of weeks at least for delivery time.  We'll be doing a KAL for the various colorways that will run all year over in my Ravelry Group here.  (And there might be some other colorways that sneak in the monthly updates too..... stay tuned....).

Psst.... The Santa Fe Colorway is already live in the shop here

**************************************************************************************

My Interweave/F&W Media book, Free Spirit Knits, is now officially released!  Thank you all for your preorder purchases in support of this book.  I am scheduling trunk shows and book signings into the spring, so if your LYS would like to host one, please get in touch and we'll see if I can make it happen.  I'm currently scheduled at:

  • Warm Hearts Yarn, Los Alamos, NM, on Saturday, December 19th from 1-4 pm
  • Serendipity Yarns in Buena Vista, Colorado, on January 16, 2016 (time TBD).
