You're A Mean One

December Secret Bag Society Clubs are coming.  This months club choices (should you choose them) include an Adventure Bag, a deliciously scented hand-poured soy candle, and a beautiful skein of HT Single Sock Merino yarn.  This is a fun one and I can hardly wait to reveal it.  Ready for your clues?  Here they are. Clue #1:  You might leave milk out with your cookies but this is really what Santa craves. It took Judy 1200 years to perfect the recipe.  (have you seen the Santa Clause?) Clue #2:  His heart grew 3 sizes and so will yours when your club package arrives in the mail. Clue #3:  Mochas, candies and now a treat for knitters  This sweet delight is...

November YOTM - Rotting Pumpkins

Halloween is over and you probably have a bunch of rotting pumpkins sitting on your porch that probably don't look too pretty.  But don't let the name of this yarn fool you.  The "rotting pumpkins" on your porch may not be pretty but this yarn definitely is. Rotting Pumpkins is the November YOTM.  I've dyed this seasonal colorway on my HT Single Sock base to show it's vibrant and amazing color.  It would make a beautiful pair of socks or be perfect paired with a tonal for a gorgeous shawl. I only have a few of these available.  The November YOTM will be in the shop on Tuesday, November 5th.

November Secret Bag Society - All Wrapped Up

Are you ready for a mystery? A couple of years ago, in 2018 I started the Secret Bag Society.  I'm bringing it back for 2020 with a fun new twist.  What is the Secret Bag Society?  Well...if I told you then I'd have to kill you.  Just kidding. The Secret Bag Society is actually a fun monthly club with a secret mystery twist.   Each month will be a different "mystery".  I will pick fabrics, dye yarn, and select candle scents all based on that month's mystery theme.  I will also choose a bag style. I will post a collage image each month along with the available bag style and clues about that month's club.  While you won't know exactly what the...

October YOTM - Spice

Spice is a lovely color that's really hard to describe.  Not quite red, not quite orange, not quite pink.  I think the best way to describe it is it's a rusty orangy red with peachy pink undertones.  One of my favorites, this yarn is a perfect shade to kick off your fall knits.   Available on Simple Sock & Tweed, Spice will be in the shop on October 10th at 11:00 am PDT and only available through the month of October.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It - New Bag Clubs

Clubs are one of my favorite things to put together.  It's just so fun scouting out new fabrics and fun surprises.  You may remember the Secret Bag Society from 2018 as well as the Outlander Club and my annual Halloween Club.  Because of unforeseen circumstances, I won't be doing a Halloween Club this year but hope to bring it back next year.  But  I have decided to bring back the Secret Bag Society for 2020. The 2020 Secret Bag Society will run from November 2019 - October 2020.  Clubs will go on sale on the 15th of the previous month and will close on the 25th.  So November's Bag Club will go on sale October 15th and you have until October 25th to...
