Here we go guys! We have been super busy behind the scenes dyeing up as many one of a kind colourways in as many bases as we possibly can squeeze in to one giant Etsy Update! Here are the details:
Boxing Day Etsy Update on December 26th at 12pm (noon) ET! Link to Etsy shop here. The shop will appear empty until exactly noon on the 26th at which point it will be overflowing with yarn!
This update will feature $1 a skein shipping ($2 for overseas orders). I always do my best to catch any multiple orders and bundle them together to save on packaging and trips to the post office. With $1 a skein shipping there are no overcharges to refund so it saves me a lot of time in administrative tasks. Win-win! I am marking each item as being ready to ship in 4-6 weeks. I expect to have things out the door and on their way to their loving homes much sooner than that but I won't be starting to ship immediately as I'll be taking some time off to chill with family after the 26th and I think it's wise to build in a little wiggle room.
This year's update will feature every single one of our bases (see the full run down on our yarns page). Lots of sweater quantities and lots of colourways! Solids, speckles, the works! There are so many colours that I want to keep for myself. It’s a good one!
Unfortunately I haven’t managed to put together a preview of all the bases/colourways this year. What I can say is that we’ve got lots of variety and we have focussed on making sure that we have a decent quantity of just about everything so though it may still be busy, the chances of nabbing something you love are pretty good. ;)
Also back by popular demand we've made up a whole bunch of Mystery Skein Sets! These are 3-colour skein sets of fingering weight yarns in gorgeous groupings. Each set will include a skein of Cosmic Blue Label, Purple Label and Red Label - one of each base and each base a different colour (each set features one knock-out speckle!). Each set will be a surprise, but each will be made up of colourways that I would personally use in a shawl together. I’m envisioning these sets being awesome for shawls since there are so many beautiful 3 colour shawl patterns out there, or, you could of course knit 3 separate projects with them.
I’m really looking forward to ending the year on a high note with this Etsy Update! I look forward to it every year. It’s a tonne of extra work right before the holidays, but then we get to wrap up our year feeling like we did as much as we could and it sets the tone for a busy and colourful new year.
Since I started having babies almost 6 years ago, every year has been different. Just when I think that I’ve got a grasp on what I’m doing things change. The babies obviously play a large role in that but it’s also just the nature of building and growing a business in an ever changing landscape. It’s never dull and for that I am extremely grateful. Thank you so much to our amazing community of knitters who lets us do what we love! Especially on the year’s that I have babies I am overwhelmed by how understanding, supportive and caring a community we have here. It’s the best thing in the world.
From our family to yours, happy holidays!!! See you on the 26th!
