This week’s update has been made (@Another Crafty Girl)! Tonight, it’s all about Strong Sock! A couple colorways are in the shop for the first time this week. The first is Mona Lisa (lower left) which was a 2 Crafty Girls Club colorway, the 2nd is New Friends & Happy Tears (lower right) which was the goodie bag yarn at SSK 2013.
The 50 Yards of Fun KAL is being extended through the end of the year! No excuse not to knit up lots of little goodies for your friends and family. Details in the Ravelry group.
I’ll be at KitM (Knitting in the Mitten) this week and while I’m not vending I am offering a free delivery service to those attending. Please use the coupon code: KITMDELIVERY2013. Please do not use this coupon if you’re not going to be there, I will be forced to delete your order. Please also include your Ravelry ID in the comments at checkout.
You can now find my yarn among the many talented dyers at The Loopy Ewe!!!
I’ve been so excited about this announcement and it’s been very hard not to tell you all about this months ago! It’s a wonderful shop run by even more wonderful people. Go check them out.
This week’s update has been made (@Another Crafty Girl)! As promised, the shop was updated a couple hours ago. Lots of Strong Sock and Twinkle Sock have been added as well a few skeins of Twinkle Lace and Merino Worsted. The next update will be Oct. 28th. I will be out of town from the 15th-22nd and no orders will ship during that time but the shop will remain open.
Time is running out to sign up for the 2 Crafty Girls Yarn Club, this is the final round of the year. It’s my opinion that you all deserve a treat for making it through another year, so go ahead, treat yourself! :D You can find all the details here.
Hope to meet some of you next weekend at Rhinebeck! I’m so excited to see all your faces!
This week’s update has been made (@Another Crafty Girl)! Tonight it’s all about Strong Sock, in a variety of different colorways. I’m hoping things will get back to normal soon. I have some big deadlines coming up but things should calm down after that. I’m currently planning on having another update next week, the 7th and then it may be a couple weeks before the next one as I’ll be out of town Oct. 15-22, and I’m going to Rhinebeck! It will be my first time attending and I’m so excited! Are any of you going too? I would love to meet you if you are!
Hugs all around!
I just wanted to gush over this amazing new shawl pattern released today. It’s called the Berkeley, CA shawl (designed by Emily Peters) and I absolutely LOVE IT! The shawl above was knit with my Gamut colorway and I’m just blown away how stunning it looks in this pattern. Emily designed this pattern with heavily variegated yarn in mind, aiming to show it off beautifully, with minimal pooling. As a indie dyer who focuses primarily on heavily variegated colorways I often have people ask me, “What, besides socks, would I knit with “fill in the blank” colorway?”, and I think this an excellent option. In fact I’m hoping to cast one on soon! I just need to decide on some colors for myself. I may use my latest 2 Crafty Girls Club colorway but I’m not sure yet. What colors would you knit this shawl with?
Ooh! AND, Emily is even offering a discount through Sept. 27th, 25% off with the code “FiatLux” at checkout!! Don’t miss out on this great deal. I’ve seen the pattern and it’s charted and written out very well!
This week’s update has been made (@Another Crafty Girl)! Things are still busy busy around here but I managed to get a few skeins up for you tonight. It’s a pretty Halloween/Autumnal theme today. There’s also a few skeins of Ponkie Brewster up, I know lots of you have been looking for that one. Enjoy!
Hope you’re all doing well!
There’s been a pretty awesome update made tonight (@Another Crafty Girl). There is a lot of worsted today as well as some You’re My Bestie! Sets AND something new. Pictured above are my 25g Mini Skein Sets that I made to go along with our upcoming KAL (starting later this week) to go along with Rebecca Danger's newest book 50 Yards Of Fun! My yarn was used in the book and I’m so completely thrilled that Rebecca wanted to use my yarn. SO EXCITING! I can’t wait to knit some of these adorable little toys with you all!
Treat yourself to some adorable minis and join the KAL being hosted in my Ravelry group (Another Crafty Girl & Friends).
There’s been a HUGEnormeous update at ACG today! Check it out! https://www.etsy.com/shop/anothercraftygirl
There are even new items in the shop, You’re My Bestie! Sets and Twinkle Lace! Come take a look at it all!
There is something for everyone!
I know there’s not much in it but the shop will be switching to vacation mode on Monday…and not re-opening until mid-August (after Stitches Midwest).
I hate to do this but I’m again canceling today’s update…it’s possible that the shop won’t update again until August, after Stitches Midwest. There’s A LOT going on right now and I need to cut something. The amount of work I have to do right now so BIG and I feel that if I don’t eliminate something everything would suffer because of it. I hope you all understand. I will try to squeak an update in before SSK but at this point I can’t make anymore promises. Exciting things are happening for ACG and even though you can’t see it right now, I am working my tail off.
I will keep you all posted about shop updates but the next one is TBD. If I get caught up on some stuff and decide to have an update I will be sure to post here and let you all know.
Also, I’m still planning to have a KAL in August. A if for August & Another Crafty Girl. I hope you will all knit (crochet or weave)-a-long! Stay up to date with ACG in our group (Another Crafty Girl & Friends) on Ravelry.
Wish you all the best! ♥
This week’s update has been made (@Another Crafty Girl)! Small again, but at least there is a new colorway! The new colorway is called *Campfire* and I love it. It reminds me of roasting marshmallows in the summer evenings. I’m looking forward to having some of those soon!
Special orders are now closed. I will open them up again in October, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Hope you all have a super week!!
This week’s update has been made (@ Another Crafty Girl)! Sorry it’s so small, on the bright side there are a couple of your favorites this week. There’s also one skein of Residual Boulders (inspired by Tremors, and a past shipment in the 2 Crafty Girls Yarn Club), this is the first time it’s been in the shop. If anyone has been waiting for this colorway I can surely dye up more if you ask.
Just a reminder, special orders will be suspended from June-October (3 days left to get in your special orders!!!) so if there’s something you need before then let me know, as always special order requests should be done through Etsy convos.
Love you all!!
This week’s update has been made (@ Another Crafty Girl)! The small updates have returned. I’m getting serious about setting things aside for my upcoming shows so only a fraction of what I’m dyeing each week will be making it into the shop.
Just a reminder, special orders will be suspended from June-October (that is only a couple weeks away) so if there’s something you need before then let me know, as always special order requests should be done through Etsy convos.
And just in case you missed my announcement, I’m sharing a booth with Jelby this summer at Stitches Midwest, you can find all the details here.
Hope you all have a super week!!
I’m pleased to announce that my good friend Cary of Jelby (high quality and adorable felted knitting notions) and I, the owner of Another Crafty Girl (hand-dyed yarns) will be sharing a booth this summer at Stitches Midwest! Seeing as we’re sharing a booth, we decided we should have something for you that both our brains helped to create; matching yarn AND a Jelby accessory, you know you want it! More details on that later, we know you like surprises. ;)
The Stitches market will be open to the public August 9-11 (there is a small entry fee), but if you’re taking classes you get to preview the market on the evening of August 8th, with no entry fee!
This is a huge step for ACG and Jelby, our HUGEST SHOWS EVER! Personally, this will be my first multi-day show, and it’s a big jump to go from prepping for one day to prepping for four! If you’re planning to come and already know there’s something you want to see from me, please take the time to fill out this form to help me gauge the demand of certain colorways and/or yarn bases. I thank you in advance!
We hope you’ll come out and say hello! We are both BEYOND excited to be vending there this year!
This week’s update has been made (@ Another Crafty Girl)! There are 12 brand new colorways this week inspired by the Muppets (technically 11 Muppets and 1 Sesame Street). It was so much fun to dye new colorways, it’s been too long since I’ve done that. I really hope you like them! I really wish I could keep them all for myself.
Just a reminder, special orders will be suspended from June-October (yes, I did extend that an extra month, sorry) so if there’s something you need before then let me know, as always special order requests should be done through Etsy convos.
Around 70 of my colorways have officially been renamed, you can check out the new names here so that you’re not confused when you see new names popping up in the shop.
Hope you all have a super week!!
