I have so much to say about everything going on this weekend that I thought it best to sit down and write a blog post instead of taking it to Facebook on multiple long winded posts! So, hang tight folks, this is going to be a long one...
First up, I have new colors! I am so excited about each and every shade, as you might have noticed if you follow me on social media! Something about this time of year makes me really want semi solids, so it is officially my habit to make a collection in December and this year is no exception.
This years collection was inspired by my favorite colorway, Silver Lining Tweed. For me SLT is everything: classy,fun, and totally wearable. I wanted to make a collection of solid colors that could be all that, and more. I decided to take all the colors that make up the rainbow in Silver Lining Tweed, punch them up and over dye them in silver grey. The results, I dare say, speak for themselves! They are so saturated and flattering. I am sure everyone will be able to find a favorite, and if you can't pick, get a set of them all! I was only able to get it dyed on Everything Fingering so far, but I will have it available on Signature Sock, and Everyday Lite next week. It will be available on DK as soo as soon as we get our shipment from the mill!

That brings me to Special Edition Yarn! I've been a bit sour about DK being out of stock for so long, and I really wanted to do something fun and spontaneous. Evan and I decided it would be really fun to offer up a special limited edition seasonal base for the cold winter months. After lots of back and forth we settled on a gorgeous, worsted weight, US grown and processed 100% wool Targhee yarn!
Targhee is the breed of sheep, which is a cross of Lincoln, Corriedale and Rambouillet. This makes Targhee fiber soft, matte, bouncy and completely luscious. Targhee is perfect for next to skin, while still being durable enough for everyday wear. This yarn would be amazing for sweaters, blankets, hats, cowls, mittens and anything else you could imagine! I am calling this base "Seasonal" and it will be available in generous 275 yard, 4 oz skeins. This yarn is NOT a superwash yarn and will felt. You will need to handwash your garments made in this yarn.
While supplies last, Seasonal will be available in the Silver Lining Rainbow color collection. You will notice the colors take a bit differently on the pure wool base verses the superwash, but I think they are just as amazing on this base. I also added Eclipse to the collection, because it's Eclipse and it's stunning, but this version does not have the speckles and is a semi solid as well.
I'll have swatches in all the colors soon, but for now check out how it knit up in Sage! I cast on a swatch for a Daelyn Pullover by Isabelle Kraemer which I have been wanting to knit for ages!
Due to the limited nature of this base we will be unable to offer it for wholesale.

And finally- surprises, oh my! My wonderful husband Evan has surprised me and the kids with a getaway to our favorite indoor water park for a couple of days! We will be leaving Sunday and getting back on Tuesday, so there won't be any shipping while we are away, and just to be on the safe side of things and to give us a little buffer, I'm going to say shipping will not resume until Thursday, December 21st
But, you know me, I would never go away and not make it fun for everyone... SO, the next 75 orders will get a free gift of an OnTheRound enamel pin with ANY order! There are no order minimums, and the only restriction is gift cards, since I don't mail anything with gift cards so there would be no way to get you your pin!
Your order WILL NOT make it in time for Christmas, so please take that into consideration when ordering.
And there you have it, new colors, new yarns, and surprises for everyone! I'll be posting about our adventure and my new sweater WIP on Facebook and Instagram, and of course I will be available via email while we are away.
And don't forget- all US orders over $100 ship free for the whole month of December! There is no code needed, just choose the free shipping option at check out!
Now, I'm off to pack!
